Hoping for some much needed help and info from you peeps
We are 2 couples from England who are planning our holiday of a life time ....
We are looking towards end Sept 2010 and just to start us off need to look at the first initial part of our road trip
We plan to fly to SF and stay there a few days, Alcatraz and Golden Gate Bridge are a must.
Then this is where I need help
We plan to drive from SF to LV, we want to take the scenic route hopefully via Yosemite and DV.
We will be leaving SF early and plan to do the trip in 3 lots of driving.
1st lot then a nights stop, 2nd lot then a nights stop and 3rd lot then arrive in LV late in the day.
Is this possible to do in the short amount of time we have?
How many hours driving will it be in total?
Any ideas on where best places to stay overnight? We were thinking of Lone Pine as one of them?
Will we have enough time to pull over every now and again to take in some of the beautiful scenery?
Vegas Hotels, we were looking at Stratosphere or Sahara but have been informed they are way to far out? any info on that would be great
Oh one last question from my boyfriend
What sort of car would we need to hire to drive that route, would a normal full size car be ok or are we better off with a 4x4, think he just wants to drive a 4x4 so is just telling me that this is what we will need.
