Me and my girlfriend are planning to travel from England to America at the end of September for 3 weeks to the west coast. I was hoping if you could let me know if this potential travel plan is too ambitious or if there's anything major I've missed out that's worth seeing?
So, here it goes!:
Fly into LA and leave on Day 4
(Day 4) Head to palm springs, joshua tree and stay somewhere between Phoenix and there
(Day 5) Leave there and stay in Phoenix until Day 8
(Day 8) Phoenix to Sedona, then Flagstaff
(Day 9) Flagstaff to Grand Canyon, then long drive round to somewhere like Fredonia to stay overnight
(Day 10) Grand-Staircase national park, head towards colorado in the evening
(Day 11) Head to Durango and then onto Santa Fe
(Day 12) Spend some time in Santa Fe, then head to Albuquerque
(Day 13) Albuquerque (Balloon fiesta)
(Day 14) Drive to Socorro (Large array thing), then onto Roswell
(Day 15) Roswell to Carlsbad Caverns and head to Odessa/Midland in the evening
(Day 16) Aim to reach Fort Worth by the evening
(Day 17-19) Get to Dallas and stay there for a couple days for remainder of trip
Sorry for the long post but we would be very grateful for any comments or useful advice. We especially don't really know if there is anything worth seeing between the NM-TX leg of the trip so open to any suggestions or detours.
Thanks in advance!
