My family and I are travelling from the UK in late May. We’re flying into Las Vegas where we’ll be visiting friends (for 3/4 days) and then hiring an RV for the remainder of our trip (8 days).
We’re flying home from Los Angeles where we’ll also drop the RV. During our trip we would ideally like to visit Death Valley, Yosemite, maybe San Francisco (but I wonder if this may take too long) and then head down to LA, taking in anywhere else that is a ‘must’.
Bearing in mind that 8 days isn't long for this trip I’d really welcome some advice on:
a. Are we mad to travel so far in such a short time and, if so, what route would be advisable to make the most of our time?
b. If our planned route isn't too crazy, what should should be on our list of ‘must see’, i.e in Death Valley, Yosemite etc?
Our kids are 13 and 10 and we’ll be taking them out of school so want to make this trip a real education for them and as memorable as possible.
Thanks so much.
