  1. Default Sept 08 California Road Trip

    Hi there,

    My husband and I are doing a 3 week road trip in September and would love comments on our planned "route".

    We have two additional days we have not “allocated” yet, and would really welcome advice on where else to stay / see ...
    Also any thoughts on where we perhaps should spend more or less time would be great.
    Finally, any hotel or Inn recommendations (up to $200 a night) would be really helpful.

    Hope to get some advice soon.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Alternative options on the Las Vegas / Grand Canyon part.

    The LV to GC return road trip is time consuming – 9 hours driving / about 500 miles. So here are a couple of alternative options to think about.

    1) Fly and stay a night from Las Vegas. There will be other firms doing similar trips no doubt.

    2) Different route back West from the Grand Canyon to vary the journey. Take route 64 to Desert View then on route 89 via Page on to Springdale at Zion NP.

    I like the look of this place for a stay. Would also give an option to visit Bryce NP.

    And from there back to your chosen route – Death Valley / Yosemite.

    Decisions, decisions……….

    Default I totally agree with Eris

    I always prefer a roadtrip that takes you on new roads. If you want to do Bryce NP...and it's sure worth seeing! might also consider staying at one of my favorite's, Ruby's Inn & Campground.
