My better half and I have booked our flights , and are flying into LAX on the 21st November from London , return flight is for Saturday 5th December , departs in the evening . OK please bare with me .
We are going to rent an suv , and do a road trip. I have very recently joined this forum and have been reading a lot of the posts , but thought id post this . and get any feedback from the experts.
As the flight arrives into LAX quite late , was thinking of getting an airport hotel and then picking up the rental car in the morning , and then driving down to the San Diego area . The missus would like to do some scuba diving . So after a couple of days in that area , get on the road and head east to wards Tuscon . I am a big aircraft enthusiast so intend to make visits here and there to places of interest to me in this field and also to see other touristy sites.
I have booked a flight on the next Saturday to take us up and over the storage facility at Davis Monthan in Tuscon . obviously need to do Pima as well . Tombstone while we are down that way .
Skipping forward , Friday the 4th would be spent travelling from Vegas tp LA . so Wednesday and Thursday 2nd and 3rd in Vegas .
So would I have time to see Phoenix area , Flagstaff , Maybe GC then Kingman on the way to Vegas ?.
And I have a few days after I leave San Diego to fill up on way to Tuscon .
Apologies if this all sounds a bit messy , but it really is in the rough stages of planning at the moment .
Yuma seems a popular place to stop en route , is it worth overnighting there , or should I push on ?.
Are the suv vehicles to rent 4 wheel drive ?.
Would appreciate any help , Routes , places to stay etc . Motel 6 or that kind of accommodation .
Thoughts good or bad are most welcome.
Look forward to hearing from you all
