Hi All, first post here so forgive ramblings!
We're taking our Honeymoon at the start of Aug 09 and flying back around 24th - this will give us around 3 weeks....
There is SO much to see and do over there, but we have to be realistic and we don't want to spend all day every day driving, but want to get a feel of the "real" America, see some small towns, meet Americans.
We do want to pull up by a lake, make a cup of tea, relax and just enjoy being there...
We DEFINATELY want to see.....
The Giant Redwood trees
At least one National park (poss Yosemite if we have to stick to one)
We will fly into a major city - our choices are San Fran, LA or San Diego (we don't really mind which) and will spend a few days there chilling out before beginning our adventure and picking up an RV.
We are not sure whether to have the RV for the whole trip, or swap it for a car/motels after visiting certain areas. We would also not mind taking internal flights at some points to cut out long drives if necessary to get us to another area - eg LA to Eureka, or Eureka to Las Vegas.
We would appreciate advice on the best routes, best places to see, where to go via, where to stop off, anywhere to avoid, perhaps places not on the "normal" tourist routes but that are all the better for that.
Thanking everyone in advance
Grant and Melanie.
