I'm thinking of a trip flying into Phoenix towards the end of March and driving to San Francisco over a two week period. I picked those particular airports because it allows me to do a one-way trip and both have direct flights to the UK. Anyway, I would appreciate thoughts on how to break down the trip and good places to stay.
I was thinking something along the lines of:
- Phoenix (1 night)
- Sedona (1 night)
- Grand Canyon (2 nights)
- Bryce Canyon (2 nights)
- Zion (3 nights)
- Las Vegas? (1 night)
- Death Valley (drive through - is there anywhere to stay between Vegas and Yosemite?)
- Yosemite (2 nights)
- San Francisco (1 night)
But I don't know the area at all, and haven't tried to plan out the route in detail yet, so any comments would be greatly appreciated. Also, I would be particularly interested in any places it was worth detouring to on the way.
The alternative would be to skip Yosemite and San Fran and fly into and out of Vegas.
