I am hoping to get some general thoughts on a 14 night road trip planned for this June. I donít know if I am cramming too much in and would really appreciate any comments on below especially on the routes (ideally scenic) and the number of nights I have allocated to each place. I want to see as much as possible and any must see places anyone can suggest would be great!
Also not sure of the terrain and what type of hire car would be suitable (would love a Mustang but not entirely convinced this is practical!)
Thanks in advance!!
San Francisco to Yosemite (3 nights in San Fran with an early start for Yosemite)
Planning on taking highway 120/tioga pass into Yosemite.
Yosemite to Sequoia (2 nights in Yosemite)
Drive to Fresno then onto CA-180 E to big stump Entrance.
Sequoia to Death Valley (1 night in Sequoia)
Not entirely sure about this route. I think I will have to go via Beakersfield
Death Valley to Vegas (1/2 nights in Death Valley?)
Get onto the 95 straight into vegas
Not sure whether 1 night is enough in DV or 2?
Vegas to Zion (1 night in Vegas)
Get the interstate 15 North.
I would ideally like to go straight to Zion but am not sure of the route or if this will be too long a drive.
Zion to Bryce (1 Night in Zion)
Do I need to spend a night near both Zion and Bryce or can bypass any?
Bryce to Monument Valley via Lake Powell (1 night Bryce)
Take 89 to Lake Powell and then head south again on 98 to 160 and 163, and into MV. Then north on the 261 then east on the 95 and back south on the 191
Would anyone recommend staying the night at Lake Powell? If so, I could shave a day off Vegas at the end
Monument Valley to Vegas (1 night MV)
Continue on the 191 to highway 40 through flagstaff and then the 93 from Kingsman up to vegas
Vegas to Grand Canyon (1 night GC)
Thinking about signing on a GC tour once I get to Vegas
2 nights Vegas then fly to the UK
