Im a first time poster after reading through all the great threads. The advice and suggestions on here are fantastic so I know im in the right place!
My girlfriend and I are planning a trip (we are from New Zealand) to LA, LV and SF in late December through to mid Jan for 3 weeks. We have a party we would like to attend in LV over New Years and would like to spend a few days there with friends.
We are looking at getting a reantal car for the 3 weeks we are there. I have been to the states 10 years ago and spent time in both LA and LV but my GF hasnt been.
Our basic plan is to spend a week in LA seeing the sights and maybe Christmas there and then driving to LV for 4 days. From there im not sure. We would love to go to Death Valley on the way to SF and would also love to go to Yeosmite but reading posts on here it sounds like the road would be closed with snow at that time of year. Any suggestions would be fantastic!
Once in SF we would like to spend 4 days there then make our way down to LA over a few days stopping along the way at yet undecided places.
Any ideas?? Is this enough time to have a pretty relaxed trip and see that part of the country?
Thanks so much
