Apologies in advance for posting another new thread and this already covered subject but the information on the trip from San Francisco to Las vegas is vast and a little overwhelming and given the short time we have to plan, I thought it advisable to create a thread for requesting advice while simultaneously reading through the reams of information on this excellent site. In that context, we are arriving in San Francisco (from the Cayman islands so no jet lag) on 31 July and are planning a road trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas, leaving Las Vegas on 15 August to fly to London. We have already booked some hotels but can perhaps be a little flexible if what we have booked is not really workable. What we are thinking:
31 July to 5 August - San Francisco (we are staying at the Union Square Hotel)
5 August to 7 August - Yosemite (we are staying at the Evergreen Lodge which we appreciate is not in the park but it is the only place with vancancies at this late stage)
Between 7 August and 10 August we were thinking it would be great to drive some of the coastal road, maybe see Carmel and Monteray and also Death Valley on the way down to Grand Canyon but appreciate this is a bit of a zig zaggy route.
10 August - 12 August - Grand Canyon?? (still looking for accomodation)
12 August - !5 August - Las Vegas
We havent even looked at Car hire yet but that will be the next step!
Any and all advice will be gratefully received.
