  1. Default Advice on route LA to LV to Great Canyon to San Fran and back to LA 30 days RV Rental

    Hi, we get our RV Monday 23rd Jan 2012, we have 30 days to tour California and neighbouring states. We want to spent say up to coming Saturday in LA, doing major attractions, then hit the road. Thinking without knowing what will be best to go north to LV, Grand Canyon, Salt Lake city, San Fransico and back to LA. First time in USA and from South Africa. We are sailors around the world. Would appreciate any route suggestion taking in consideration say 21 days from Los Angeles. Rgds
    We love walking and outdoors.

    Default things to really consider

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Let me first suggest that if you are planning to spend the first several days of your trip in LA, then you'd be much better off waiting until you are ready to leave the city to pick up the RV. It will be much much easier to get around the city, and find parking, in a regular car. Plus, your RV park options within the city will be limited and expensive.

    The next thing I'd point out is the basic contradiction in your plan and your question. You said you love walking and the outdoors, but out of all the places you listed you want to go, other than the Grand Canyon, you only listed cities. The southwest has some of the most amazing landscapes in the world, and its got dozens of National Parks to showcase them. Zion, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley (tribal park), Arches, Canyonlands, Yosemite, Sequoia, and Death Valley are just some of the amazing spots you can think about visiting.

    There are many many threads that cover these areas, and these should help give you some more ideas. Once you've got that part figured out, then the next steps will be easier.
