  1. Default 10-12 days from Vegas to Los Angeles - January 2018

    Hi everyone,

    Just found this forum and already learnt a lot and looking forward to more :)

    We have 10-12 days to road trip between Las Vegas and Los Angeles in January. We will have come from 10 days in San Fransisco so preference is to head south rather than back towards where we have just come! We are two adults travelling with two kids and would really like to take in some of the natural landscape, small walks/hikes and to experience some of the national parks.

    My query is around working on a trip plan that accounts for the January climate, without the need to spend ten plus hours in he car each day. We have no real interest in spending time in LA, it's our final destination only as we need to get to LAX to fly home. We would rather head further south and visit San Diego, or perhaps into Palm Springs and just return the car to LA then head home than spending time in LA.

    Appreciated any tips or suggestions on a good route for us to take.

    Many thanks

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You haven't given us much to work with here. You say you want to take in natural landscapes and national parks, but you didn't mention a single park you want to visit - only mentioning a few other cities. Your plan is also quite confusing, you're asking about Vegas to LA in 10 days, but you also talk about spending another 10 days prior in San Francisco (without any indication of what you will be doing with that time.) With 20 days, doing one big loop could very well be your best bet.

    Certainly, there are no shortage of National Parks throughout the region, be it in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Southern Utah. You might want to look through this list of "Best Of" threads discussing the many, many options that are available to you.

    Once you have a little better handle on specifically where it is you want to go, we'll be in a better position to provide more specific advice.
