I'm a belgian girl travelling with my husband to the US 2 weeks in april.
I'll start with apologizing if I'm not writing/speaking your language correctly, but I will do my best to try to make as little mistakes as possible!
I have been reading a lot of threats on this forum and maybe you will feel like this question has been asked to much. But I will take the liberty to ask it, because I didn't actually found an answer yet.
We have tickets from and to LA. I would love to drive the coastal road to San Francisco. From there we would like to go to Vegas. From Vegas do Zion, Brice and Gran Canyon and then back to LA.
Because we have only 13 days (it wasn't possible to take a longer holiday at my work), we have been thinking what we would like to do and which things we could skip.
We would like to do the coast, SF, death Valley, Vegas, grand canyon and LA.
The questions I have are: we are landing in LA and would like to drive that day a couple of houres, to drive the following day up to SF... where would you stay the night then?
Departing from SF, we would like to drive a long way up to Death Valley. Is that possible, because we need to cross the mountains. I know... we'd skip Yosemite. And I agree, it looks lovely on the pictures, but we need to make choices and we're not the kind of people that like to hike - and... yosemite looks at first glance the most similar to nature in europe...
So if possible we'd like to drive up to death valley and overnight. would we be able to reach death valley in one day? Next day, we'd have time to visit and drive to Vegas.
so i think we'd need:
day 1 arriving, driving up to ?
Day 2 coast and overnight in SF
Day 3 SF
day 4 SF
Day 5 drive up to Death Valley
Day 6 visit Death valley drive up to Vegas
Day 7 vegas
Day 8 - day 11 brice, zion, gran canyon
day 12 drive to LA overnight in LA
day 13 LA
day 14 LA
day 15 leaving in the morning
is this a possible way to visit evrything?
thank you so much for your help!
