Hi! Possible trip from UK in a few weeks time. Arrive in Las Vegas & stay for 2 nts. Then - wanted to drive to Grand Canyon South Rim & stay for 2 nights (do a bit of walking )-have some accommodation "sort-of" booked. Then we have until 22 March (6 days?) to get to San Fran.
Boyfriend thinks drive to grand canyon (5 hrs each way) basically means we will be travelling back on ourselves. were wondering if we could fly from LV, but that seems like an expensive option (£200 each inc accom from scenicair.com?)
Given that we'll have to drive, what routes would people recommend to get to San fran. I realise we have lots of time. Originally I fancied the coast route & I read here that the "popular route" other route direct via Yosemite is closed in winter. So: would we be better on the coast or inland? Where should we stay etc.
We wouldn't want to drive every day & we would want stay for more than one night (looking for places to stay can be pretty unrelaxing - making decisions isn't something that I’m famed for!).
We like nature & outdoors & craft-brewed beer (not while driving!)
Hope you can help. I need to suggest a route before we take the plunge & confirm the flights etc!
