  1. Default 23 Day Road Trip To and from San Fransisco

    We are planning a road trip to and from San fransisco in an RV with our 11 year old son.

    We have a rough guide of what we want to do and where we want to go. But does anybody have any ideas on things we just mustnt miss?
    At the moment we have
    Pismo Beach, LA,Vegas, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion NP, Sequoia NP, Yosemiti, Mammoth Lakes, and Tahoe.

    Default Wonderful trip !

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    This area is the most discussed on the forums and by digging around a little you will find thousands of idea's and too many things "you shouldn't miss" to do in the time you have. However it is an outstanding area to visit and you seem to have a good handle on things and a nice amount of time to choose some of the best, that appeal to you.

    What you have so far [plus a couple of addition] would work pretty well like this, SF>LA[a couple of days on coast route 1>Joshua tree NP?>GC>Monument valley?>Bryce>Zion>Valley of fire?>LV>Sequoia[via Bakersfield/Lake Isabella]>Yosemite> Mammoth lakes [via Tioga pass/CA120]>Tahoe>SF.

    Some might be wondering, why no Death valley ? As you are travelling in an RV during the summer Months it will most likely be in breach of your rental contract, but you could check it out.

    With visiting this number of National parks it will be penny wise to purchase an annual pass for $80 which is available at the first park you come to, or alternatively, if you are spending a little time in SF they have a store upstairs on Pier 39 that sell them and have booklets etc.

    If you plan on camping in the NP's [highly recommended] you will have to book up early to secure places as they are very popular, but if it is this summer it might already be too late. Check out each park and details at

    If you have the time this might give you an idea of RV'ing in the area and if you have more questions, either about your route, or RV'ing in general, just ask.

    Enjoy the planning !
