  1. Default West Coast - 3 wks from Seattle to San Diego

    Currently we (two women, 23 and 27) are researching a west coast road trip - at this stage no flights are booked.

    - Current plan is to spend 3 weeks in July driving from Seattle to San Diego, with a predictable detour via Las Vegas - is it too ambitious to cover this distance in 3 weeks? We hope to spend more time around San Francisco, Las Vegas, Gran Canyon and San Diego. We would therefore be happy to spend more hours on the road at the beginning of the trip.

    - We are London based and therefore not used to being in America for July 4th. Is it worth us trying to get flights that allow us to be in the country for this date? Or would there be little extra to see and do.

    We are fairly flexible at this stage so any advice would probably be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    Default Enough time.

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

    Three weeks is certainly enough time to do the miles and have time in between for some sight seeing. There are many attractions along the coast road and just inland a bit so you might want to search the forums and road trip planning pages as they are full of info. You could comfortably spend a couple of weeks coming down the Coast and even finish up in Vegas after the Grand canyon for your flight home to save you zig zagging back and forth. Have a good look around and see what appeals to you and work out an outline itinerary and we should be able to help you fine tune your trip.
