I am currently planning a 40th Birthday road trip for my husband for next July and need some help with my route between SF and LV - sorry I know this question gets asked all the time!!
We have 14 nights and are thinking of the following itinerary:
1st July - Land in San Francisco late afternoon their time
2nd - 5th July - 4 full days in San Francisco as there is so much we want to see and do day trip to Napa / Sonoma etc
6th - 10th July - Pick up car and make our way to Las Vegas
10th July - Arrive in Las Vegas (Birthday on 11th)
11th - 15th July - Las Vegas
The bit I need help with is the journey from SF to LV. So far we want to see Carmel/Monterey, drive the Big Sur road, Yosemite / Death Valley - my questions are is this realistic in four days? What route should we take and how long should we stay in various stops? Are there any other places we can take in on route?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
