My wife and I are planning our 1st American road trip in October this year, just wanted to run our plans last the experts on this forum and see if we are missing anything, or planning too much- the plan is as follows.
8th Oct- Land in LAX, drive up to Vegas.
8,9,10 Oct- Stay in Vegas with a trip out on one day to Death Valley.
11th Oct- Drive from Vegas(early start) to Bryce canyon via Zion, aiming to spend time in Zion to arrive in Bryce late on, stay the night in Bryce.
12th Oct- Explore Bryce in the morning then drive to Lake Powell in the afternoon.
Stay 2 nights in Lake Powell.
15th Oct- Drive from Lake Powell to Monument Valley, stay the night in Monument.
16th Oct- Drive from Monument to Grand Canyon South Rim- Stay 2 nights there.
18th Oct- Drive from Grand Canyon to a hotel south of Vegas-1 night there.
19th Oct- Vegas back to LA. Last 2 nights in LA.
How do the distances/ times in each place sound? Not enough time anywhere, too much time anywhere. Have we missed anything?
I am also looking at a Hertz Rental of a V8 Camero, is this a sill idea??
