i have been reading all these threads for hours and found some great advice. We (my husband and I, both 40) are planning a trip. We dont mind driving and are not too keen on hiking (a short walk to get the feeling is great).
We are starting out trip an 23. MArch in San Diego after a Convention and are leaving from San Fransisco on 6. April.
Day 1: San Diego to Joshua and see how far we get, if possible Laughlin or Kingman. We are not sure about this part or which roads to pick.
Day 2: Go to the Grand Canyon, see the sunset and drive to Cameron (we have seen the Canyon before and will do a helicopter flight from Vegas)
Day 3: Caernon to Monument Valley and head to Page.
Day 4: Page: Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe bend etc.
Day 5: Head off to Bryce Canyon, short hike (in March????) and head off to Zion. I guess we gant do Zion on the same day....
Day 6: Zion and drive to Las Vegas try to get th Valley of fire on the way. Check out the Strip by night.
Day 7: Helicopeter flight to the canyon, see the hotels in Vegas and do some shopping at an outlet (any suggestions???)
Day 8: Head off to Santa Monica directly (have been to Death Valley before, so we can leave that out this time)
Day 9: Hollywood, Walk of fame and all the tourist stuff
Day 10: Another day in LA, Beaches, relax
Day 11: hit Highway Nr. 1. to San Simeon
Day 12: San Simeon to San Fransisco, visit the Monterey aquarium and to the 17mile drive.
Day 13: Maybe a drive to Napa Valley (ist it far?), evening in town
Day 14: san Fransisco (china town, Pier ecc)
Day 15: last shopping, packing and leaving
I hope to get some advice from you experts! Especially if you think the days are feasible (lenght, sights, points of interest). And I woulf love to hear if somebody has some suggestions on the San Diego Grand Canyon part.
Thanks in advance!
