Hi everyone, me and my girlfriend are currently planning a road trip on the west coast.
We will be flying into SFO on May 21st (Around mid day arrival) and have until June 10th or so before going back home to Boston so we have around 19 days for this trip.
We want to go to Yosemite to Monterey to LA to Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and then Going to Salt Lake City and then to Yellowstone.
We realize that the longer drives would be too long for one person to drive (She can't drive) and we need advice for mid way stops for the longer legs of the trip.
Currently, a rough plan is:
(--> includes drive time)
SF - 3 days
-->Yosemite - 2 days (~4 hour drive from SFO)
-->Monterey - 1 day; spend night there and drive to LA in the morning(~4 hours drive from Yosemite)
-->LA - 3 days (~5 hours drive from Monterey)
-->Las Vegas - 2 days; sightseeing mainly, no care for gambling (~4 hour drive from LA)
-->Grand Canyon - 2 days (~4.5 hour drive from LV)
-->Salt lake City - 2 days drive and sight see; (LONG drive...need a midway place)
-->Yellowstone Park - ? days (Long drive again; 6 hours)
This adds up to around 15 days leaving 4 days for Yellowstone, would this be okay? I don't mind driving 4 hour stretches with a food break in between. I'm familiar with the drive to NYC from Boston so it's not too too bad, it's just the long stretch to Utah and Wyoming that would be tough.
Any route suggestions would be awesome. I made a plan on google maps here:
