Hi everyone, I'm new here.
Me and my fiancée are getting married next year, and will be honeymooning in the summer. We will both be 26, from the UK and have never done anything like this.
We had planned to do the whole of Route 66 for 3 weeks at the end of July/August.
However upon looking more into it, I am hearing alot of better things about the west coast drive.
I am considering maybe doing this instead. I wanted to know the road trip expert's opinion!
It will have to be in the summer holidays as my fiancée is a teacher.
It will be 3 weeks (maybe a couple days extra if I can convince her!)
We want a convertible car to hire one way (I know that's expensive but I would rather that than driving it back)
Want to stick to the coast road all the way (i heard heading south is best as it is closest to the coast)
Would 3 weeks be enough to to leisurely drive it while stopping at sights and driving slowly to take in sights while:
Spending 1 maybe 2 nights in Seattle
2 nights in San Fran
2 nights in LA
Then after San Diego, off to Las Vegas for 2 nights.
And if possible, 1 night at the grand canyon then back to Vegas to fly home (grand canyon was part of our route 66)
Would this be okay for that amount of time?
