My name is Tomas and I am from Slovakia. My wife asked me that she would like to see America - as gift for her birthday. So I decided to plan a surprise roadtrip for her. As we did not have any honeymoon 5 years ago, lets call it honeymoon roadtrip.
When I was searching for information about possible destinations, I found this amazing webpage and read a lot of great tips from experienced travelers. But I still miss the experiences to prepare the right schedule, so I would like to ask you to help me to plan this roadtrip correctly.
Here are some basic data:
We will land in NYC on 2nd of May. We will spend 2-3 days there and want to buy some ticket to SF. I expect we will be in SF on 5th.
We are leaving from Phoenix on 15th morning. So we should pack the whole trip between this 2 dates and cities.
I expect to spend at least one day in SF and see the most interesting within the city (we will probably walk or use public transport).
After that we would like to rent a car and leave SF. Here is my first dilema. I first thougt that we will drive down the costal road (direction LA). But when I found your web I realized that there many other interesting places around e.g. Yosemite NP. Because of the tight schedule we probably won't be able to fit in costal driving and Yosemite, so I decided to prefer Yosemite (but also like to read your opinion about that).
I prepared the list of places we would love to see: SF, Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon. Do you think we can fit it within our tight schedule? Do you have some interesting tips along the way? Would you please recomend the best roads to follow to see everything and best places to sleep?
I would appreciate any feedback because I would like to prepare amazing roadtrip for my wife:)
And sorry for my English, I am not native speaker.
