Hi, I am Amanda and I am planning on going to Vegas with my partner & 2 adult daughters for my 50th Birthday in February 2013. We hope to plan a trip for approx 20 days. Arriving in LA and sightseeing there for approx 6 days (including a trip to San Diego). We then want to drive up to San Francisco and stay 2 days there. Then drive to Las Vegas (allowing 2 days for this drive), staying 5 days in Las Vegas including 1 day out to Grand Canyon. Then drive back to LA over a couple of days.
I was hoping for some help in planning the driving portion of the trip, with suggestions on where to stop (overnight) and what sites to see on the road trip. I am open to suggestions on my time line as we would prefer not to drive for too many hours in one stint. Once I have some idea of what is best to see and where to stay I can get onto planning the days in LA and Vegas.
This is our 1st trip to the states and we really want to make the most out of this once in MY life time experience. A bit like a bucket list check off!!!
Hope you can help and give some handy tips and suggestions to make sure we do it right.
