First time poster and again apologies for posting another thread on touring the west coast of the States but I had a few specifics. I'm heading on my honeymoon in late August early September to America. Flying from Dublin to Las Vegas. Staying there for 4 days and then driving up to San Francisco. I had planned on flying into Los Angeles but didn't see any attraction in spending time there. I have pretty much decided what I can do in Vegas, so I'll take in a few shows and maybe take a helicopter ride around the Grand Canyon.
It is the rest of the trip that I could do with a little advice on.
Day 1 Arrive in Vegas, pm, so rest for evening
Day 2-5 Do Vegas stuff!!
Day 6 Leaving Las Vegas, I plan to head towards Death Valley National Park and overnight in Furnace Creek. (160 to 190)
Day 7 Leave Furnace Creek and head to Yosemite and plan to stay near Fish Camp. Stay in Yosemite for 2 days (190 - 136 - I395 - 120)
Day 10 Leave Yosemite. Had planned to travek to San Francisco but read about some people visiting Monterey and was wondering if this would be worth a visit for a day before travelling up to San Francisco. (Travel from here??)
Day 15 Leave for Ireland.
I wanted to mix city activities with ourdoor activities. So we can catch a few shows in Vegas and Alctraz etc in San Francisco but didn't want to miss out in exploring the countryside.
Could anybody recommend a route from Vegas to San Francisco taking in the above and also perhaps give their opinion on an overnight in Monterey or sosmewhere else on the route.
BTW Great site folks.
