  1. Default Advice


    we are thinking of doing a road trip next spring for two weeks, starting in Nashville and ending in San Francisco stopping at Memphis, Dallas, Amarillo, Santa FE, Pheonix and Las Vegas and possibly taking in Yosemite and the Grand Canyon,

    Does this sound realistic in 2-3 week trip?

    Any advice would be great

    The drive from Nashville to San Francisco could be made in as little as four and a half days, even with the slight detours to Santa Fe and Las Vegas. So two weeks will leave you plenty of time to travel at a relaxed pace, to take additional side trips to the Grand Canyon and other attractions, and to spend a fair amount of time at those attractions that you do visit. So all-in-all you have the time budget for a very enjoyable RoadTrip. You don't say whether this is a one-way or round-trip, but either way will work. If it is a round-trip we would encourage you to take a different route eastbound.

    These forums are replete with general advice, so I suggest you read through them to see what specific questions others have raised and what advice they have gotten. If you have questions that haven't been answered we'll be more than happy to answer them, but it's simply impossible to respond to a generic request for 'advice'. It would also help us help you if we knew what your interests, budget restrictions, and travel style were. One specific heads-up I can give you is not to count on being able to get to Yosemite from Las Vegas by crossing Tioga Pass on CA-120 from Lee Vining. The pass is snow-bound for the winter and often doesn't open to through traffic until well into late spring.

    Thanks AZBuck things we are looking at doing will mainly revolve around music, sport and museums & galleries. It's a one way trip so flights would be back from San Francisco. Are there any other places on that route etc you'd think about visiting?

    In Phoenix, there are two worthwhile museums. If you're interested in music, the Musical Instrument Museum has one of the largest collections of instruments. A friend of mine has been to it, and it's on my bucket list for one of my next trips to the Phoenix area. Another is the Heard Museum, which specializes in Native American history and art.

    From Phoenix up to the Grand Canyon, if you're interested in a scenic drive, take I-17 to AZ-179 to 89A, through Sedona. Beautiful country, though the drive will be slower than using I-17 all the way north.
