Just found this website and it looks very useful!
I would appreciate some advice for a road trip I am planning. We (my wife and I) will fly to Vancouver then drive along the coastal road (where feasible) to San Francisco, then on to LA as a final destination via the Grand Canyon.
We have two weeks (in June) and so far have alloted the time like this;
Stay in Vancouver - 2 days
Drive to San Fran (via coastal road - if recommended)
Stay in San Fran - 2 days
Drive to Grand Canyon
Stay at Grand Canyon 1 or 2 days?
Drive to LA (via Hoover Dam)
LA - 1 day
I have heard that Crater Lake is worth a visit, as is Yosemite National Park, Mono Lake, Sequoia NP and Death Valley NP.
My questions are;
1.Is this too much to attempt in 12 days driving?
2. Have I missed out any other areas of interest or should I swap some of my above list for some other recommendation?
3. Is the coastal road to San Fran worth the effort?
4. Any safety advice?
5. Any other thoughts in general
We are a couple of Brits but have lived in the US for a while and are used to the roads etc. We will have a GPS with us too.
Many thanks for your suggestions!
