I have posted before about the possiblity of a roadtrip starting in Canada and hitting New York etc, one thing and another that was not to happen and me and my partner decided to travela round italy instead... well again this is no longer happening and the pull of the states has taken over :)
I am looking for advice, or at least pointers for our trip, we travel mid August for 2 weeks. I have a few destinations in mind, please find listed below, but there are many gaps
New York 3 nights - not sure which is the best area to stay to make the most of the stay
Fly to Las Vegas - hire a car. Stay in Las Vegas for possibly 2 nights - probably on the strip to soak up the bright lights.
Now this is the really tricky bit... travelling around for 8/9 days flying back to the UK from LAs Vegas
During this bit we would like to go to the Grand Canyon and have a stay in the National Park. We like to do alot of hiking and would be great to get a couple of good walks in (work off some of that great American food), but would also like to take in the scenery of the area. I would like to stay in some motels-for the experience, plus as we won't be spending much time in the rooms, seems a waste to spend lots on fancy hotels
All pointers will be appreciated, as we are getting very close to the time, and trawling the net is getting to be a minefield
Many many thanks
