I am currently planning a roadtrip for September this year starting (and finishing) in San Francisco. We have 3 weeks and want to spend the final week in San Francisco. The first two weeks will be taken up with the roadtrip. So far we have the following planned:
1. Land in SF and stay there on the first night.
2. Yosemite National Park for 2 nights.
3. Las Vegas
4. Palm Springs
Can anybody please help with ideas as we currently have a gap between leaving Yosemite and arriving in Las Vegas. I am not sure where to go and what to do for these 2 or 3 nights (Grand Canyon, Death Valley?).
Also, where is good to stay in L.A. to take in the usual tourist spots but in a safe area?
Thanks for looking - any help / ideas would be extremely welcome (especially as we are going in 7 weeks).
