We are in the process of planning our first 'road trip' in the US this spring.
Initial plan is :
Fly into San Francisco from UK
Stay couple of days, visit to Alcatraz + other sights
Hire RV and drive down the coast to LA.
Stay few days in LA and do the tourist thing...(not sure what yet :D) - Oh couple of days theme parks.
Drive on to Las Vegas, again stay few days
Drive to Grand Canyon, heli ride
Next - ???
Fly out from LA? or drive back to SF?
Been to the US a few times, but only to Orlando/Miami/Keys etc..
We'll have 2 weeks on the ground in the US. The RV plan was so we always had a nice 'home'. No packing/unpacking, being able to make it our own etc.. and be able to go where ever we wanted to.
There's only me, my wife and step-son, so a nice big (30+ ft) RV will give us plenty of room and more privacy than a single hotel room.
I guess what I'm looking for is some advise on RV's and where to go for a first trip? My real concerns regard using the RV in cities. Where do you park, how accepted are they etc.
Any help/advise would be greatly received.
