I know there are alot of threads regarding trips from San Francisco to Las Vegas but some appear to contradict others etc. Basically im looking at planning my honeymoon for June 2011 - we looked at a 14 night trip with a uk company but want to cut it to 10 nights so we can spend a week somewhere else. We want to start with three nights in San Francisco then get to Las Vegas in two days (1 night) - this was included in the companies itinerary so we presume its do-able but gives no idea of the route between the two. Ideally we want to travel through one of the National Parks on route (Death Valley not important) - basically i want to know if this can be done in two days (getting up early and arriving late not an issue) - and where you would recommend staying. El Porto seems popular but the drive from there to Vegas looked a bit extreme If its possible to take in the Tioga Pass that would be great. We would then spend 3 nights in Vegas before travelling to LA for 3 nights. Any help much appreciated.
