  1. Default From Las Vegas to Northern Califonia

    We are planning a road trip, one that will begin in Vegas at the end of September. We were thinking of driving from Vegas to San Diego and then up the coast till the Red Woods, making stops on the way. We leave Vegas on a Wend morning.

    My questions:
    1 - Should we go to San Diego or skip it and head straight to LA?
    2 - What are some great places we should stop at on the way?
    3 - How many days will we need at our stops?

    We have the time (more or less).

    Thank you very much!!

    Default Three to Get Ready

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    1) I find San Diego to be a fascinating city with much to recommend it. In fact, if given the choice, I'd skip L.A. in favor of S.D.!

    2) That list is essentially endless and includes Mojave National Preserve, Balboa Park, San Juan Capistrano, the La Brea Tar Pits, San Simeon, Monterey, and the redwoods and sequoias of the northern California coast.

    3) As much as you can spare (seriously!)

    Default One question.

    Hello there and welcome.

    I am unsure whether you mean the road trip will start and finish in Vegas or not or if the Northern coast area is your destination?

    These links should give you some ideas. Here, here, here, and L/A, and San Diego.

  4. Default Thank you

    Thank you for the replies and the links.

    to clarify, we are renting the car in Vegas and then want to drive up california. We are just not sure what the best way is.

    We leave Vegas on a wend, if we visit Sand Diego for two days, then we will be in LA for the weekend. I heard that its not a good idea to hit LA on he weekend.

    Default why?

    I heard that its not a good idea to hit LA on he weekend.
    Maybe its just my curiousity with sweeping generalizations like this, but why would visiting LA on a weekend be worse than visiting on a weekday?

    I can't think of why there would be much of a difference. If anything the killer traffic might be a little better on a weekend
