we are four 23-old students who want to experience an unforgettable road trip in the West of the USA in July! I already have traveled in the east coast previous year.
I have some crucial questions which I would be thankful if you experts would be able to give me some good advice. Here is some key information:
WHO? young adults in need of ADVENTURE (a nice mix of big city life & nature)
WHAT & WHEN? roadtrip in July (probably 3 weeks)
WHERE? LA - Las Vegas - San Francisco + some NP along the way (including Grand Canyon)
1) CAR OR RV?
We don't want to be stuck with a car or RV in the big cities because there it is not necessary. That's why I came up with this plan:
*ARRIVAL LOS ANGELES
* FEW DAYS L.A.
* GETTING TO LAS VEGAS //car or plane
* FEW DAYS LAS VEGAS
* RENTING RV IN LAS VEGAS //as the road from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon & in the end to San Fr is quiet a lot of nature, I think it is wise to rent an RV. That will be more adventurous and as we are 4 people, it could be cost efficient in comparison with renting a car & finding a place to sleep. Also, we would like to have as much freedom as possible. Agree?
* VISITING SOME NP'S
* ARRIVAL SAN FRANCISCO //here we would give our RV back and stay in SanFr for a few days.
* RENT AN SUV FROM SanFr to L.A. //sleeping in motels along the way?
* LA flight to home
Good plan or not? Any great tips for students in search of adventure???
THANK YOU! :)
