I'm a little over whelmed by this site but I'm sure once I figure it out I won't bother you as much.
We are taking our first step to independent travel with a holiday and road trip to USA.We have booked flights to san Francisco for early September and we are flying back from Vegas two weeks later. So we want to plan a road trip between the two.
We are thinking of booking our first three nights in san Fran and then setting off without pre booking any rooms. We know we'd liked to stay in yosemite and maybe stop at lake tahoe or seqouia, though people don't seem impressed by lake tahoe saying it's very commercial.we want to have a few days in vegas and we want to see the grand canyon. I've been told of few other places but I really don't have much of an idea yet.I'm spending today looking at maps and I will try and figure out this forum for help.
We want to see as much as possible without driving every single day. We are unsure of whether to drive to grand canyon from vegas or pay out for helicopter ride. We've been told south rim is best. We love the outdoors and walking although I'm little nervous about bears, we don't worry about things like that in Wales (u.k ) Also,I know usa is so HUUUUGE so walks will be longer and harder so don't want to be to adventurous and get lost.
If anyone has time to help us that would be amazing.
We've never done this type of holiday before and the only time we've been to USA was to Orlando and did the whole theme park Disney thing. We've always pre booked rooms and we've always gone through travel agents, but we would like to have more of an adventur and cut the cost of middle man. We are not on a huuuge budget we don't mind roughing it a little (though I'd like private bathroom in any place we stay. We woud like to be central on the strip in vegas so I'm looking for deals there.
Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to any replies : )
