We are four people from Portugal planning a roadtrip in the US between April 20th-May 4th. We are going to fly to San Francisco and we are thinking about coming from Albuquerque. Our must see along the way are San Francisco, the coast route to Los Angeles, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Painted Desert and Santa Fé. We are going to do the route 66 between Los Angeles and Albuquerque. Is there anything that you recommend along the way? How many days would do recommend to see each of these places? Is there any suggestion you would do for this trip?
In the beginning we were divided between coming back from Albuquerque or Oklahoma but we prefer to spend more days in the other places, as the only places of interest we could find between Albuquerque and Oklahoma were the Blue Swallow and the Cadillac Ranch. Do you think it was a wise decision?
