My girlfriend and i are planning a road trip to the USA this september. We are hoping to spend 21 days exploring the west/southwest and was hoping some of the experts on here could give us some advice on our plans so far. Here is our plan at present:
Start in LA (2 nights)
LA to Grand Canyon (1 night)
Grand Canyon to Canyonlands National park (1 night)
Canyonlands to Denver and Rockies national park (3 nights)
Denver to las vegas, stopping for a couple of nights in Utah, then spending two nights in vegas
Vegas to Death Valley (1 night)
Death Valley to Yosemite (3 nights)
Yosemite to San Francisco (2/3 nights)
San Francisco to LA, stopping at a couple of towns on the coast (2 nights)
I know this is a lot to fit in but that plan still leaves a couple of spare nights to fit anything else that you guys think i have missed or spend longer at some of the places along the way. Also any advice on where to visit in Utah on the way to Vegas would be appreciated. I thought Bryce Canyon might be a good place to stop but am open to suggestions.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions/tips.
