  1. Default 10 Day road trip advice needed pls! LA, Vegas, Grand Canyon, San Francisco, LA

    We are planing up to a 10 day road trip Leaving from LA to Vegas to Grand Canyon to San Francisco back to LA the last week of april.

    We are looking for the best advice on what routes to take, where to stay, what to visit along the way.

    This is our very first time in doing this so we want to see as much as we can, we are probably looking at staying in Vegas 2 or 3 nights and the same in San Fran. So the rest of the time is totally flexible. We are probably going to leave LA on Monday the 25th April and start our journey from here.

    Any advice you can give would be really appreciated, not being from America we want to see as much as we can.

    Thank you!

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Your route would be more efficient if you went from LA to GC and then to Vegas on the way to SF. You could drive across Death valley and/or detour to Sequoia NP or Yosemite, but you will have to go via Bakersfield as the passes across the Sierra Nevada will still be closed due to winter snow accumulation. From San Fran the coastal drive around Big Sur on CA1 is very popular, but is closed at this moment in time, due to a section collapsing into the ocean. They are hoping to have one lane open by the end of April with traffic control.

    This is a very popular area and by searching the forums you will find lots of info to help with your planning. Use the search function or scroll down this page where you will find 'Similar threads'. This thread has links to some of our favorites to help get you started. If you are thinking of 3 nights in LV and SF you will have to pick and choose carefully as most of your other days would taken with driving. A couple of nights in each and you would be able to balance your trip out.

    As you work things out and have new questions, just ask.
