  1. Default LA - LA - round routes

    Hey everyone,

    I'm really sorry if this information is already here!

    I'm just wondering if anyone can help with a route me and two friends are planning for May 2009. Firstly we were going to go from the west coast to the east coast by car, but we have decided to do a loop from LA back to LA. We will be

    Basically we will be picking the car up from LAX and depending on what people recommend, going north or south. We want to include San diego, san francisco, Las vegas, joshua tree, and the grand canyon as our main points and then fill in the gaps...which is where we need the help.

    We have three weeks in total, and i have no idea how long we need in each place and where we should deffinatly go and where is maybe not so important. The big landmarks are obviously a must. Any help would be extremely appreciated - i have already used this forum to make a list of all the places to visit in LA alone... and that filled almost a whole page ha ha

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Grand Canyon } Could swap these two around

    Default It will be a cake walk!

    Seriously, in three weeks, you will have plenty of time to explore in more depth than most travelers allow time for. You will also have time to relax and really inhale the atmosphere of the various places you'll be visiting. Enjoy!
