  1. Default Wedding Las Vegas and road trip

    Hi There,

    We are planning on getting hitched in Las Vegas in May, staying there two nights and heading out in a mustang or something. We would like to visit Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon and people in my office keep going on about how amazing route one is. Could we sort of dunk across to the coast and then up to San Francisco from Nevada? As I live in London and am not sure of what is what, does this look doable? We were thinking of flying back to the UK from San Fran and just saying in Motels as we come across them. Are we mad?!!

    We would have about 13 days in total

    Thanks for your time.

    Default No problem.

    Congratulations ! Hello and welcome to the RTA forums.

    With 13 days you could certainly visit the places you mention, although if you wanted a "specialist" car as such, I am not sure whether you would be able to drop it off at another location the same as a standard rental. However you could do a loop trip by heading across Death valley and through Yosemite to SF before heading down the coast and turning back towards Vegas. A potential problem here would be if the Tioga pass [CA 120] is open at your time of travel,but you can still head around the Southern end of the Sierra's through Bakersfield.
    Another option would be to hire the Mustang for 2 or 3 days to the Grand canyon, return it and then head to the coast in a standard rental.
    The area you mention is probably the single most popular subject on the forums and by using the search button you will find tons of info, here are a few of our favorites. Have a look around the forums and study the map to familiarise yourself with the area and then just ask away as you have new questions.
