  1. Default Vegas, Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Southern California Road Trip

    Hi guys!

    After loving our San Francisco - Monterey - Yosemite - Vegas- Grand Canyon road trip last year, we fancy doing something similar this year. So I'm looking for advice on what route to take on our trip this year in April/May rather than just following our Sat Nav. The plan so far is:-

    Day 1 Arrive Vegas 20:30 pickup hire car and spend the night in a cheap motel nearby before heading to Zion NP in the morning.
    Day 2 Zion
    Day 3 Zion
    Day 4 Bryce Canyon
    Day 5 Las Vegas
    Day 6 Las Vegas
    Day 7 Las Vegas
    Day 8 Palm Springs
    Day 9 Palm Springs
    Day 10 Palm Springs
    Day 11 Ventura
    Day 12 Santa Monica
    Day 13 LA
    Day 14 San Diego
    Day 15 San Diego
    Day 16 San Diego
    Day 17 Fly home to the UK.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Your plans look fine. If you are flying home via LAX, I'd probably do Palm Spring then San Diego and then up to LA/SM/Ventura.

    However, that's a whole lot more time in cities than I'd be interested in doing. Have you considered spending your time exploring some of the other parks of Utah and the 4 corners? From Bryce you could continue towards Arches/Canyonlands, head down towards Mesa Verde or Monument Valley and even Sedona before heading towards Palm Springs.

    No we are planning to fly home from San Diego. It is roughly the same price as flying home from LAX.

    Yes we have considered exploring some of the other parks in Utah but She-who-must-be-obeyed would prefer some chilling and sunbathing in Palm Springs and really wants to see more of Southern California. She has promised to come back to Utah and also Yellowstone with me another time.

  4. Default Don't Miss Joshua Tree...

    Since you'll be in the Palm Springs area, I would recommend a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park. It's not too far from Palm Springs.

    Enjoy your trip!
