Thanks for all the advice provided on this forum, it has really helped me in the planning in my upcoming road trip.
Me and two of my friends (all 22 years old, from Norway) are going on a 4 week road trip in june/july and our route is roughly LA-San Diego-Grand Canyon-Vegas-Yosemite-SF-LA. We had originally planned to stop in Phoenix for three nights (between San Diego and Sedona), but as my uncle is from Tucson I would really like to visit that city (we are not going to stay with his family). My question is, would it be worth the extra driving to go to Tucson instead? In your opinion, which city has more to offer (sights, restaurants, nightlife, charm, security, etc.)? I am aware of the fact that it will be extremely hot at this time, but as long as we have a hotel with air-con and the chance to go inside during the day I think we will survive.
Once again, thank for all your help!
