It's obviously down to personal choice, but I need some guidance here!
After 4 nights in NYC we will touch down in L.A. at 19:55 on a Sunday night. I have booked a convertible for collection at the airport.
Our road trip officially starts here and will last 11 days (LA - Santa Maria - San Francisco - Yosemite National Park - Death Valley - Vegas - Grand Canyon - Meteor Crater - Phoenix)
I have driven through LA before and we decided not to stop the night. I'd much rather we hit the road on the Monday, cruise Hollywood and Beverley Hills (any other suggestions?) and hit the road for Santa Maria.
Am I making a mistake by not staying in this city for more than about 18 hours or would you guys do the same?
Also, has anyone got any suggestions for an average priced hotel/motel in LA which is not too far from the airport but not too far from where we'll want to be for our speedy tour in the morning?
