My husband and I are planning a trip next January, probably around 26-29 days. We're from UK and will be hiring a car.
At the moment we are looking at something along the lines of:
- New Orleans (new years eve)
- Carlsbad Caverns
- Santa Fe
- Monument Valley
- Grand Canyon
- Las Vegas
- Yosemite Park
- San Francisco
We are in our early 30's, very into our food, interested in caves and similar interesting historical culture, films, animals! like a drink (we're British, after all!), but also interested to see some of the great NP's. We like to take our time in the cities.
We are looking to do this pretty mid range cost wise - not slumming it nor living in luxury. We did wonder if we'd be better renting a small campervan/car so we could sleep in campsites around NPs - but will these even be open in January? And are we better not bothering and just finding somewhere cheap near by.
Could you give an idea of how much time people generally spend in NP?
All tips and comments welcome! I'm sure I'll have more questions when I think of them.
We aren't committed on which way round we do this trip either.
