Planning a trip to USA next September. Plan is:
Fly to San Francisco and stay 5/6 nights (no car). Then take an organised two day trip to Yosemite and back to SF. Then hire a car and drive (3 or 4 days) down the coast towards Los Angeles (not particularly planning to stay there, or should we?). Take a bus or something to Las Vegas and stay there 3 nights (no car). Then hire a car and do Hoover, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion (probably about 6 or 7 days) and back to LV for one night before flying to New York for 3 nights. We have up to 30 days so can vary times. We particularly didn't want to spend all our time driving, hence the splits between no car and with a car. Are the distances just too big for us (aged 63 and 70, although used to driving abroad). Are there huge various in weather between the places. We thought September, though we could go end August or even into October.
Many thanks TA's. We rely on you all for great advice. Once I get the rough outline of the trip sorted then I can go into more questions about hotels etc.
