  1. Default LAX - San Francisco - Vegas - LAX in a week - any tips or routes??


    Looking for some advice on a road trip. My wife and I are coming over from the UK and plan to hire a car for 7 days and want to drive from LAX to visit San Francisco, and then onto Las Vegas before returning to LAX. Is this too much in a week or can it be done and what would the best route be? Any help would be great! Cheers!

    Can you tell us the approximate week when you will be here? This does make a difference - "Fall and Winter" encompasses quite a long period of time and you do have to cross mountains where roads close for the winter due to snow.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    It would be possible to see all 3 City's in a week but does this include spending time in LA or is time there already accounted for ? There is not a single 'best route', but there are options and as mentioned above, they could be limited depending on time of travel.

    It's a very popular and much discussed topic on the forum and you will find Lot's of info just looking around, this link contains some of our favourite threads covering the area.

    Have you thought of doing this trip in an anti-clockwise direction? That way you will be on the ocean side when coming down the Pacific Coast Highway, where all the view points are.
