    Default Vegas- LA- San Fran

    Hey guys, just wondering if you can help me out?

    My friend and i are coming out to america in Sept for 3 weeks and were wondering what route to take from Vegas to San Fran?
    We have a wedding in Vegas so are there for 5 days and then we pick up our car so are free to go where ever, i have been looking at Highway 101 from LA to SF which looks lovely but there are so many other things we would like to see- Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Yosemite

    Do you have any recommendations on how we can fit everything in with out rushing around, missing the best bits and needing another holiday when we get home :)

    Welcome!

    How about finishing in LV for a "loop trip"? With 2+ weeks, you could go from LV through Death Valley, over Tioga Pass into Yosemite, then to SF, then south along the coast on CA-1 to LA, then to the Grand Canyon, and back to LV.

    the route above sounds perfect, only trouble is- we are flying out of SF so rules out a "loop trip" i really want to make the full use of our 3 weeks and fit as much in as possible. help?

    In that case how about, Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, Glen Canyon National Recreational area (Lake Powell), Grand Canyon, LA, north along the coast on CA-1 to Monterey Bay, then cut inland to Yosemite and end in San Francisco.

    Default Including Death Valley

    Taking Utahtea's suggestion with a slight variation, you could, after the GC route through Death Valley, take Tioga Pass into Yosemite and then cut across to the coast. It really would be a shame to miss out on Death Valley and Tioga Pass.

    It could even work better if you did the loop from Zion to GC, in a anti-clockwise direction, from LV.
