Hello, I am planning a trip in September, I have been looking all over the web but haven't found anything too helpful then came across this site, which looks great!
I am travelling with my fiance on the 9th September for 2 weeks. Our flights are return to San Francisco.
The basics are that we would like to spend a couple days in San Fran, then go on to Lake Tahoe (possibly), Yosemite, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Vegas, San Diego, LA then back to San Francisco for a night or so. The idea being that we go East for the first week and see the dessert/ mountains then from LA take the coastal road back to San Fran, stopping by a few beaches on route.
We like a mixture of activites, would like to do the sky walk at the Canyon, and all the touristy sites in LA incl Disney.
We are hoping to hire a convertible so it can be a proper road trip! ha ha
We are thinking of booking our hotels in San Fran, Yosemite (a camping site) and Vegas so these are paid for previous to the trip, and then sort of leave the rest unbooked so we have flexibility (but take a long list of accomodation options with us!)
Not sure if from San Francisco our next stop should be Yosemite, Lake Tahoe or somewhere else? Suggestions would be very helpful. Coming from the UK, it is quite hard to get info except by looking up every town on Google! :-)
Any ideas/ suggestions of websites to use for bookings, car hire companies, places to go, sites to see.. just about anything you can think of, will be much appreciated
