Hello - this is my first post on this excellent forum so bear with me!
My buddy and I (26 and 24, from the UK) will be flying into LAX on the 19th May and flying back home on the 4th June, and we are up for some adventure and fun. On first look things we would like to see/do are : LA, Universal Studios, Monterey Aquarium, San Francisco, Alcatraz, Yoesmite, Death Valley, Vegas, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, San Diego, Six Flags.
i'm after a combination of tourist type fun, great scenic drives, and spending some time in a national park or too (keen photographer). Does anyone have ideas for the best route to take, roads to use/avoid, and special things to experience along the way? we are looking to camp where possible, any advice on campgrounds would be fantastic.
Does this sound manageable in 16 days? I have done road trips in the north east but don't have any experience of distances and timescales over in the west. I have done a couple of trips where i did nothing but drive, I would like a couple of stay-overs on this trip where i can have a few beers!
Cheers (thanks) for reading this, and for any advice.
