After attempting to arrange a trip last autumn, which failed due to lack of time, I now have come back for another go...
We are planning on landing at LAX on 8th May and then spend 2-3 days there (should that be enough to see LA?).
After this, our plans are mostly completely open, but I know that we want to see (in order of importance):
- Grand Canyon
- Las Vegas
- Death Valley
- San Diego
- Coast road (going south)
I know San Diego is quite a way out of the way, so am happy to bin that and do that next time (if I can convince my wife there will be a next time!!).
We need to be back in LA on 22nd for a flight to NYC so I can get to work there on the monday morning, before heading home to UK a week later. Do you think the route as follows is trying to fit far too much in?:
8th LAX - arrive evening
11th LA--->San Diego
12th San diego
13th SD ---> Flagstaff(or should we just go to GC
Thanks so much for all your help. The reason for starting and ending at LA is for the cheaper car hire, although we could also not do this i guess, as plenty of flights LAS to NYC...
