Greetings all and congratulations on the site!
Apologies if this road trip has been done to death, but we're coming from England and want to make sure we don't get lost (or is that more fun that way?).
The plan is.... oh man I'm soooo excited... collect a hire car from San Francisco on 7th August and drop it off in Las Vegas on 27th August. It's the bit in-between that I need to work on... here's what I was thinking....
1. Four nights in San Francisco
2. Two nights in Santa Cruz
3. One night in Monterey
4. One night in Pismo Beach
5. One night in Santa Barbara
6. Three nights in Santa Monica (Use a base to explore Los Angeles)
7. Two nights in Las Vegas
8. Two nights in Grand Canyon
9. Four nights in Las Vegas
I've a good idea about which highways/roads (???) to take, but welcome all suggestions with open arms (we'd like to take the scenic route).
My other query is; do we need to make all these stops? I mean, are they places worth exploring or would it be better to skip a few stops and have more time at others? Or are there better stops altogether that I haven't considered?
