Our trip starts in less than a month now, and I have been reading this site and refining the trip for about a year, and this is the first time I have felt the need to ask a question!
Our trip is taking us from London - San Francisco - Monterey - Yosemite - Death Valley - Vegas - LA - London.
We had pencilled in a day out from Vegas to do a very expensive commercial helicopter excursion to the Grand Canyon but am now having doubts as I am reading that most excursions seem to be to the lesser West Rim. I'm now thinking I don't want to spend $600+ to see a "not so great" rim!
So, my idea is to cut Vegas down to 3 days, and from Vegas to drive up to the South Rim, stay over for a night and hence witness sunset/sunrise, then do the drive down to LA (Anaheim) the next day. There are two of us who can share the driving. (as long as hubby lets me!!)
I would very much appreciate any comments.
