We have about 5 - 6 days to go somewhere from and back..
to Orange County, CA.
We have about a week off until returning to work in the new year. We would really like to go somewhere, but have no idea where.
Do you have any suggestions?. We're open to anything.
Thanks much in advance,
Within Two Days
Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!
Most of the American Southwest and Pacific Coast is within a relatively easy two day drive of the OC, so your first job will be to choose from the many options open to you. I've chosen that limit so that you can take a trip that is a relatively sedate drive 'there', stopping to see things as you go, tow days in your destination area and another two day drive home. Some possible destinations:
The Spanish Southwest - Tucson, Santa Fe, Taos, Kartchner Caverns, Petroglyph National Monument, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon
Great National Parks - Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Mojave National Preserve, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park
Sierra Nevada - Sequoia National Park, Kinks Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Virginia City, Reno, Death Valley National Park
Coast and Valley - Big Sur, Monterey, San Francisco, Point Reyes National Seashore, Redwood National Park, Napa Valley
Thank you sooooo very much. We really apreciated your help. We've decided to choose the Coast and Valley option.
