I'm coming from the UK to spend 3 weeks in US. I will be starting & finishing at my uncle's (Camas WA, nr Portland).
I'm having difficulty deciding exactly what to do though !
I have some vague ideas at the moment, all of which probably involve several days at the beginnning staying in Camas & exploring WA from there.
Here are my (vague) thoughts:
- drive to Las Vegas from Portland, taking in at least some of the Pacific coast (hopefully including some of the most impressive/interesing bits) and maybe other places of interest... ?San Francisco, ? North California Redwoods etc.. I would then use Las Vegas as a base to see Grand Canyon & other "local" places (Death Valley, ? others). Then finish by driving to LA to meet up with a friend for a day or two there. Finally fly back to Portland / Camas for a day or 2 & then home. Presumably a one-way car hire would be (? a lot) more expensive than RTB ...
- fly (is that blasphemy on this forum ?!) to Las Vegas and explore that area of States in more detail than could be done in first option. Also go to LA as above
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
