My friend and myself (two Australian girls) are coming to America near the end of the year and I was hoping to get some advice on driving through California/Nevada in Winter.
What we were thinking of doing is:
Start of December: Spending 1 day driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas
2 nights in Vegas (yes, we are over 21 :))
Next, take 2 days/1 night to drive to San Francisco
2 nights in San Fran
Then 2 days, 1 night to drive back to LA
I wanted to know whether I've taken enough time to drive in between each city and although we won't be stopping to look at every little town along the way, we'd like to at least sightsee a little bit in between the cities.
Also, with the time we have to drive, will we be able to perhaps drive along some more scenic routes, like down the coast from San Fran to LA, or will we only have time for direct highway routes?
And, on the night between Vegas/San Fran, and the night between San Fran/LA, what are your suggestions for nice, in between towns to stay overnight at?
Lastly, will the weather in early December have any effect on these routes? Or shall it be fine that early on?
Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give!!
