Me and my boyfriend are flying into Dallas from the UK in May, and we want to road trip it to San Francisco but take quiet a few stops.. We want to hire a car in Dallas and drive to New Mexico (mainly because I want to see the white sand desert there) From there we want to drive to Colorado, it looks beautiful in all the pics so we don't mind which part we go to. From there we want to go Utah, - we want to do all the obvious touristy things like see the Grand Canyon and The Wave in Arizona, then Vagas and then to San Diego, and drive up the West Coast to San Fran where we will fly out from. We've given ourselfs two weeks to do this route, is it enough? What do you recommend are the must see places on the way? -we're not fussed about staying in fancy hotels we're not looking to spend too much money on accommodation. Are there many motels etc en route? Will be be able to use Route 66 at any point on this route?
We'd be interested to do some nice hikes or walks through national parks we're not too fussed about spending much time in the cites (except LA and Vagas). So scenic routes and stops!
Thank you for any tips or advice you might have for us:)
