Great site, plenty of info and forums have been a massive help so far in planning my 16 day West Coast road trip with my girlfriend June 2012
I havn't booked anything yet so just wanted to run this by everyone and see what people thought about my plans? Im open for ideas/suggestions and any tips would be appreciated. It's a little daunting travelling from the UK and sorting a holiday like this. Im used to package deals but desperate to see America
Im flying from either Newcastle or Manchester and I plan to start my trip with 3 or 4 nights in San Francisco and picking up hire car on the morning I leave from carhire3000.com. Then off to yosemite for 2 nights. Next stop would be Carmel for 1 night and following day drive along the Big Sur and go down to Santa Barbara area for 1 night.
This is were im a bit unsure and have a few options ......Should I bother with LA? or make the trip down to San Deigo if its possible? My idea is to have 1 night in LA as ive heard mixed reivews and possibly do Universal Studios or have a beach day.? Then up to death valley for 1 night and finish my trip with 3 or 4 nights in Las Vegas.
Is this realistic? I do want to see as much as possible but still enjoy places like San Fran, Vegas & Yosemite
thanks for taking time out to read this
