I am surely raising a question that has been asked and answered many times here. I tried finding the ideal thread for me but unfortunately was not able to do that. Therefore, I am asking for help on a road trip from SF to LV in June.
We are 4 guys from Germany/UK who will arrive in SF on a Thursday (14 June) and will leave SF by car on Friday. Our idea was to arrive in Vegas on Saturday, thus having 1.5 days for the trip. Now that I have checked various maps and forums, it seems quite a shame to leave out Yosemite and Death Valley, thus I am thinking maybe we should prolong the road trip for 1 extra day (thus 2.5 days max). Not sure if this is possible though.
It would really be great if someone could provide advice on both options (1.5 days and 2.5 days). We'd like to have some nice scenery impressions on the road and we'd like to stay 1 night in a nice little town or motel with bar on the road - this would be the 1.5 day trip. If we make an extra day, we'd like to include some activity - possibly in Yosemite.
Not sure if any of the above ideas is realistic and would greatly appreciate any feedback or links.
Thanks & best
