Thank you so much for this website and forums, I have been using them extensively to plan our trip to California and Nevada in late February/early March and now have a rough itinerary which I would love people to comment on to ensure I am not making any obvious mistakes. This will be our first ever road trip and visit to the USA and we cannot wait!
Here is our itinerary as it stands:
Day 1: Flight to LA and stay night at hotel (prob near airport) to rest
Day 2: Pick up rental car and drive to Vegas
Day 3: Grand Canyon + overnight stay
Day 4: Back to Vegas
Day 5: Death Valley (+overnight stay close by)
Day 6 & 7: Yosemite
Day 8: Drive to San Francisco
Days 9 & 10: San Fran
Days 11 & 12: Drive to LA along Pacific Highway, stops enroute
Days 13 & 14: LA & flight back
We know that the drive from Death Valley to Yosemite will be a long one because of the Tioga pass closure so we are thinking of an overnight stay enroute, somewhere fairly close to Yosemite, leaving one night actually staying in Yosemite.
Are there any things that look like they need adjusting? I look forward to hearing any suggestions :)
