We are relocating to San Francisco in April from the East Coast and thought it could be fun to do a mini road trip starting in either Phoenix or Las Vegas and ending in San Francisco. We have a 2.5 year old and I'll be about 6.5 months pregnant so we would need to stop to stretch our legs and do activities along the way.
Does anyone have any recommendations on places to stop along the way or feel strongly that the route starting from Phoenix is better than Las Vegas? We've never traveled to the West Cost with the exception of LA and San Fran so we don't have strong feelings about things to see..although I've heard Zion is beautiful. We are outdoorsy but would need to be limited to basic/beginner level hikes or low impact activities given our situation. We also haven't decided if we want to rent an RV or car for this excursion.
I look forward to your comments/suggestions and thanks in advance!
