Am planning a friend with for Summer 2011. Main places we want to go to are LA, LV and San Diego. We will probably fly in to whichever airport is the cheapest flight (coming from England) so not overly fussed what order we do the route in.
We'll be renting a car so are pretty free to travel where we like within reason. We don't really want to go up as far as San Francisco or across enough to the Grand Canyon. Instead we are hoping to spend more time exploring mid-Southern California/Nevada area. Happy to travel down to Arizona from LV but we're not that 'clued up' on that state.
Can anyone recommend any places in between that might be of interest - we want to mix site seeing with relaxing and will be there for 14-16 days.
I've heard that LA is actually quite overrated, does anyone have any thoughts on this? We will probably one dedicate a couple of days there.
I've also heard from a friend about the RoomSaver magazine that is great, is it easy to get hold of when over there?
Sorry this is quite a broad topic area - mainly just looking for suggestions of places to go in between the main three I've stated.
thanks all :-)
