  1. Default Feom Missoula to Los Angeles

    Hey ! My parents, my friend and I are planning our very first road trip the 3 first weeks of August. ( We're from Paris in France)

    So we would like to start from Missoula, go to Yellowstone Wyoming, then Utah for we don't what ( any suggestions ?), Nevada Grand cannyon, Las Vegas, then Californie to do San Francisco and Los Angeles. But the problem, is it even possible ? How many time and miles to do as much as we want ? :S
    Any suggestions, tips or help ?

    Default Lot's of time, even more options !

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You will find loads of info by searching the forums and other RTA pages planning pages in the tool bars above. With 3 weeks it is possible to do, and at a reasonably comfortable pace. You could drive the rough outline of your route in 5/6 day's with no sight seeing stops, so you need to start working out how much time you would like to spend in each place.

    Form Yellowstone head South through the Grand Tetons and South through Salt Lake City or take 191 past Flaming Gorge Res etc, into Utah.

    Heading into Utah you have some magnificent National parks, such as Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce canyon and Zion to choose from.

    From Vegas to San Fran you could go through Death valley [real hot this time of year !] and over the Sierra Nevada into Yosemite. As you head South to LA, allow 2 or 3 day's and drive the spectacular coast Rd on CA1.

    Once you have got some of the basics down and you have other questions just ask and we can help to fill in the blanks, enjoy the planning.

    If money is a concern at all, you might not want to start in Missoula. The fact that it is such a small city means that you're going to have very high airfare and car rental rates - especially one way car rental rights.

    There's really not any large cities near Yellowstone, and your best bets would likely be Salt Lake City or Boise, or even going out to Seattle or Denver.
