My husband and I are planning our 25th Anniversary trip starting in Reno, NV on June 1. We plan on spending the first night in Reno - second night in Stateline, Nv (via Mt. Rose Highway). Night 3 we have reservations in Yosemite (Curry Village). Night 4 no reservations. Nights 5, 6 and 7 Las Vegas. We will leave Las Vegas on June 8 early in the morning - go to Grand Canyon and spend the night in Sedona. Spend June 9 exploring Sedona and then off to Phoenix for a red eye back to Boston.
Here are my questions:
1. Getting to Yosemite - I believe the Tioga will be open so we want to arrive in Yosemite from the west and leave via the Tioga.
2. Is it too much to try and get to Las Vegas after leaving Yosemite via the Tioga or should we plan on staying somewhere in between>
3. Leaving Las Vegas on the 8th in the am to the Grand Canyon South Rim and then to Sedona - too much?
Tips about renting a car: I planned on an intermediate car (Ford Fusion) Reno to Phoenix - it was going to cost a fortune - my sister said Pick up in Reno - drop off in Vegas - pick up another car in Vegas and on to Phoenix. At first try - Reno to Phoenix it was about $900. With the switch in Vegas got it down to $500 - after further searching I have it under $300!!!!!!!
