Love the forum. This will be my first post but not my first road trip.For honeymoon done NY 5 days, flight to LV 5 days, Dodge Charger to HDam, then down to see Majove, Joshua Tree. Stayed in 29 palms then on to San Diego, loved the road trip, it gave the bug to come back & do it again.
So here is my next trip which I am planning at the moment, looking at September this or next year but not fixed on dates. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have been looking at forums to this is where I have got of my ideas.
The plan is both sets of parents & little boy, wife & myself. So six adults & 1 child (under 3). I would like to fly to San Fran & stay there for approx 4-5 days, then hire a suitable people carrier for us, first stop Yosemite, then on to Death Valley then Las Vegas for 4-5 days, leave there swing by Hoover Dam (others have not seen it) then onto Grand Canyon South Rim then head down to Phoenix for flight home.
My initial thoughts:
SF 4-5 days
Overnight Yosemite 1 day/night
Overnight Death valley 1 day/night
LV 4 days
Drive to Williams via Hoover Dam 1 day - stay in Williams
Grand Canyon 1 day
Head towards Phoenix via Flagstaff/Sedona
Fly home - Sadly does not give us anytime in Phoenix, one for another trip maybe.
Any advice on small changes to plan & places to stay would be great, thanks in advance.
