My two friends and I are also planning to drive the Highway 1 from SF to Santa Barbara in the end of April. From Santa Barbara we would be heading to Grand Canyon and Las Vegas (we fly from LV). This part of the trip would probably take 3 - 4 days.
Could you please give recommendations for a good route from Santa Barbara to Grand Canyon and further to Las Vegas? (Sights, motels, interesting towns..?) Also, where should we stay in Grand Canyon? The area seems to be quite big, and we are most interested in the views. :)
Thanks in advance!
