Hello everyone! I am currently planning a trip out west for the beginning of April and will be flying into LA mid-day on 4/3 and out of Vegas late night on the 4/12. I will be renting a car for the entire trip. I'm attempting to plan the best route while minimizing time on the road, and when we are on the road, making it an interesting drive.
Here are the main sites we are planning on visiting;
(Possibly Malibu via Pacific Coast Hwy)
I'm not sure if my best route would be from LA to Grand Canyon via Needles. Then after GC around east end of GC to Bryce, then Zion or taking I-15 to Vegas then Zion, Bryce, GC, Hoover Dam. Basically, should I make the loop around GC clockwise or counter-clockwise?
I'm just beginning to get this planned so any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
