Hi guys - first time poster to this site, but let me commend you on its usefullness - its great!!!!
I appreciate that there are many and varied threads regarding my chosen roadtrip route, but as we are planning a once in a lifetime trip to celebrate our honeymoon this summer, we are keen to get things right and therefore with to engage with the experts.
My wife2b and I will be embarking on a roadtrip this coming August as our honeymoon. We will be starting in Las Vegas and plan to drive through Death Valley, Yosemite, San Fran and then down Highway 1 to L.A via Monterrey and Santa Barbara.
We are content with the trip we have planned except for one leg of the journey. Currently our travel agent has us leaving Vegas and travelling to Furnace Creek where we will spend two nights. This will be followed by a 400mile trip the next day to Cedar Lodge El Portal in Yosemite.
My question is, would we be better staying one night in Furnace creek and then hitting the road again in the morning with the aim of having another stop on the way to Yosemite..........or would we be better staying longer in the Furnace Creek area followed by a longer stretch in one to Yosemite when we leave.
My travel agent has suggested a stop in Fresno or Bakersfield if we decide to split the journey to Yosemite in two, although i was looking at the map and thought a stay in Bishop on the way to Yosemite using Highway 395 may be a better route - scenery wise.
I would be grateful for any tips you may have.
Thank you in advance
