Found this forum, and it looks interesting and helpful.
I've seen users post their plans, and other users commenting on it.
I would love it if you can help me optimise my route!
First of all, we arrive at LAX 4th of July, and we leave the 28th.
4: Arrive, settle in hotel, go to Santa Monica for 4th of July fireworks
5: Hollywood & Beverly Hills, rest of the day at ease, Venice Beach & Santa Monica
6: Universal Studio's
7: Grand Central Market and maybe Malibu Beach or Long Beach or...
Here the roadtrip part more or less starts :p
8: LA to Williams, route 66, stop at Calico Ghost Town
9: Grand Canyon, continue towards Monument Valley
10: Monument Valley, Horseshoe Bend, and sleep in Page?
11: Hoover Dam + arrive at Vegas (maybe something extra?) (hotel booked)
12: full day in Vegas + night (hotel booked)
13: Death Valley NP & Sequoia NP, sleep somewhere on the way
14: Mammoth Lakes & Yosemite, continue towards Lake Tahoe
15: Lake Tahoe + go to Sacramento
16: Sacramento + go to San Francisco
17: SF (any not-so-typical hints for San Francisco?)
20: Drive by the shore to San Luis Obispo in several days, completely at ease,
21: What towns or stops can you suggest? Monterey, Big Sur, ...?
23: SLO (My godmother lives there, so visit her, go shopping, go to the beach...)
28: Flight to BELGIUMMMMM
Well, can you help me? I've added some questions in the planning itself.
Because the hotel in vegas is booked, the first part can't be much adapted.
For the rest nothing is booked, so open to enhancements.
My major concern is where to sleep (budgetary), and if everything is achievable, regarding driving time & distance.
And did i skip things we should certainly do or see? Mainly for the long-drive days.
Any remarks are most appreciated!!!!
And again, nice website! Love the 'tunes for the road' page!!!
