So I'm thinking of doing a road trip next year for about 2 weeks.
I'm in Calgary but I want to head down to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and Southern California. I figured that rather than spending 5 days driving just to start and end my vacation (2 days to get to Vegas, probably 3 days to return from California) I would fly to a major city and rent a car from there.
Any advise? I'm considering flying into Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego etc. I'd like to fly in and out of the same city to keep rental costs down. Also, I'm guessing the sales taxes would affect the price of rentals quite significantly. Which state has the lowest tax?
