    The trip you are describing is easily the most popular and most discussed basic trip outline on this forum. Here are just a few of the thousands of posts we have on the subject. I suggest you start by simply looking around here to get some basic ideas.

    Default Several days ?

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A. forums.

    This is one of the most popular areas for visitors and there are many threads covering it throughout the forums.Here is a link to our favorite ones.

    we would like to spend several days in Las Vegas.
    With only eight days from arrival and departure in L/A and wanting "several days" in Vegas is narrowing your options. If you have a day in L/A on arrival and took the second day travelling to G/C with a full day and 2 nights to see this wonder, and then a trip to Vegas and a couple of full days there you have gone through 6 days. You could certainly hit the coast in a day from Vegas, maybe around Morro Bay and then return to L/A.
    Although if Vegas is the main attraction for you and you want to spend time there I would have thought it best to fly into there and visit the nearby parks of Death valley, Zion NP and take a trip to Grand Canyon.
    You could also look at the option of flying into L/A and out of Vegas for a one way trip but it could possibly add to your rental charges.
