Heeeey. I'm about to set off with my wife on a 10 day road trip but there is 2 parts to it I am uncertain about as outlined in the title of this thread.
The trip begins in LA on the 7th and we need to get to Indio/Palm Springs on the 16th, it doesn't matter what time of the day.
Heres the loose itinerary.
tues 7th land LA
wed 8th leave for SF stay somewhere along the way
thur 9th arrive SF look around stay SF
fri 10th stay in SF
sat 11th leave for vegas stop along the way yosemite / dv?. either carry onto vegas or stop somewhere for the night.
sun 12th vegas
mon 13th vegas
tues 14th drive vegas to GC / Tusayan. Stay night.
wed 15th leave gc head towards indio stop when tired
thurs 16th arrive indio
I realise it is a long drive from San Francisco to Vegas. 10 hours if you trust some of the online maps. Thats fine, but I'm happy to split it over 2 days if there is alot worth seeing along the way. I know Tioga is closed.
The other question pertains to the Grand Canyon to Palm Springs section of the trip. I've allowed 2 days for this in order to try and hit some Route 66 stuff on the way. This route I am uncertian of and would love some recommendations on the best way to go and whats unmissable along the way.
I'm all yours!
