Last year my girlfriend and I went on our holidays to the states. 3 days in New York and 4 in Vegas. As a bit of an after thought we added a 1 week road trip from Vegas, through Death Valley and Yosemite to San Francisco. We enjoyed it so much we're back for more!
I gained lots of valuable insights and advice from here and am hoping to again.
We are looking at early to mid September and want to incorporate Zion NP, Bryce canyon and Grand Teton into the trip. We've come up with a rough itinerary but I'm after as much advice as I can possibly get.
Day 1 - Arrive LA.
Day 2 - Day in LA.
Day 3 - Leave early and drive to Vegas.
Day 4 - Leave Vegas and drive to Zion NP and Bryce canyon.
Day 5 - Leave Bryce canyon and drive through Utah (where to stop???)
Day 6 - Drive to Yellowstone NP
Day 7 - Yellowstone
Day 8 - Yellowstone
Day 9 - Drive down to Grand Teton NP
Day 10 - Grand Teton
Day 11 -
Day 12 -
Day 13 -
Day 14 -
Day 15 - LA
Day 16 - Fly home!
First thing. Am I spending too much/enough time in certain places? Does anyone have any suggestions for somewhere to stop between Bryce and Yellowstone (mapquest takes us through Salt Lake city)
Im also after suggestions for places to visit along the way to break up the driving. Originally I wanted to extend the drive into Montana but I don't want to over stretch us.
As I said early stages but we're looking to book pretty soon so any help/advice would be much appreciated.
Also any suggestions for places to stay along the way (including in Yellowstone) would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
