My friends and I are planning a road trip on the west coast next end of July/beginning of August. I’ve been doing some research and here’s the plan I somehow figured out:
-Los Angeles/Hollywood: 1 day and 1 night
-Las Vegas: 2 nights, 1 day
-Grand Canyon: 4 nights and 4 days (we want to go hiking and stuff)
-Some kind of stop for the night, in a camping maybe
-Salt Lake City: 2 nights, 1,5 days
-Yellowstone: 3 nights and 2 days
What do you think about it? Are we missing something, spending too much/not enough time in some places, do you have any kind of advice?
Here’s some important info: we are 6 young people (around 23) willing to drive a lot but not too much either. We’re planning to stay 15 days or so because we are somehow on a budget. Also we’re French so any typical American scenery will be amazing for us. :) Everyone here is new to the road trip experience.
Right now, we’re wondering if Hollywood is really worth it and if we should push it to Mt Rushmore even though it’s quite far from Yellowstone. What do you think?
Thank you soooo much for your help! I will continue to read all previous posts so that I’m not missing out. :)
