I'm planning a 26 days trip in February 2010 with my boyfriend across California, and also Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. So far, we have come up with this order:
Fly into LA. Stay for a few days.
Spend (2?) nights around the Laguna Beach & Newport area.
Go to San Diego, spend 3 nights.
Go to Palm Springs, 1 night, then onto the Grand Canyon, also for one night.
Drive to Las Vegas, spend 2 nights.
Drive to Yosemite (now this is the part we are not sure of. Is it advisable to go to Yosemite from Vegas in winter, or is it better to go up the coast to San Francisco, as that is also on our list of places to see, and then go to Yosemite from San Francisco?).
After San Francisco, drive back down the coast to LA.
Any tips, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've been reading the other forums for a bit now and just need this cleared up a bit more. Thanks! :)
