Hello all! My first post in this great forum, can't believe I haven't used this before :)
We are 3 friends (early 30's) going on a 3-week road trip in US in July. As my two fellow travelers have never been to the states before we'll try to divide our time 50/50 between cities and wilderness. LA and Las Vegas is set, San Diego and/or San Fran are possibilities. Other than that we'd like to see the usual stuff; Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Cedar Brakes, Zion NP. Downtime is important for us, but we still want to see a lot, therein lies the dilemma :)
After a couple of meetings and some internet research on my part I've so far come up with 4 suggestions to driving routes (link). The first was scrapped pretty fast, so now the choice is between 2, 3 and 4 (or possibly a 5th?). What is the advice of the all-knowing road-trip gurus?
