My wife and I are planning a California road trip in October.
It is the first time we go to the states (apart from Hawaii).
So far our route looks like this - split over 14 days:
- Arrival in LA on Oct 6
- Death Valley
- Mono Lake
- San Fransisco
- Coastal road to LA
- San Diego
- Departure from LA on Oct 22
First dilemma; Since we arrive in LA at 14.00 and most likely will have jet lag, we don't want to drive very far. Where on the route towards Death Valley would be nice to stay overnight? Barstow?
The plan is to continue next morning and arrive in Death Valley early enough to spend most of the day.
After a night in Death Valley we'll continue towards Yosemite - would you recommend staying overnight somewhere on the way, and if so where?
