My wife and I are moving from Toronto, Canada to San Francisco. We are packing our belongings into our car and drive across the US to San Francisco. We plan to take the trip over the 4th of July long weekend.
As this is our very first time doing a road trip like this so we need your advise on what are the best and safest routes. What areas to avoid and any good hotels and stops along the route. As we will have our belongings all packed in our car so we want to stay in safe areas to prevent any break-ins. We are setting aside 5 full days for the trip. The only places that we wanted to visit are:
- Arches National Park
Other places that are nice to visit but not required are:
- Zion National Park
- Las Vegas
- Sequoia National Park
I plan to drive only when the sun is up. By the time sunset comes, we want to check in to a hotel. So that means no more than 11 hours driving per day.
Thanks in advance for any advise that you can provide us.
