  1. Default LV/AZ and CA in May

    Greetings fellow travelers. We will be in Vegas for a business trip, and plan to leave Vegas on a Sunday - visit the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Then want to travel around (Zion, etc.) and end up in San Diego by Friday. Tips and ideas? Would love some hiking and scenery, good eats, fun things to see and do. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Default A few suggestions.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You will get some wonderful hikes in the National parks and with plenty to choose from in Zion NP. I would visit Hoover dam and then the GC and take a circular route back through Vegas. If you exit the GC via the east entry station you could drive to Monument valley and then to Page AZ. Nearby you have Lake Powell, Horseshoe bend and Antelope canyon. Before Zion you could visit Bryce canyon and after you could visit Valley of Fire and/or Death valley on the way to SD with an overnight stop. You will have to figure out what type of pace you want to set and then what you have time for, but overall a great trip to look forward to !

    Default Clockwise.

    You might find it more efficient to visit all the places Dave mentioned by going clockwise from LV. Visit Zion first so you can go direct from the Grand Canyon to San Diego.

    I did think the same as above but didn't mention it because of visiting hoover dam, but if that isn't a priority then changing direction could work well and you wouldn't need to return through Vegas. Another place to consider visiting is Joshua tree NP on route to SD.
