I know that there are hundreds of these types of posts, so forgive me for posting another!
My Brother and I are flying into Phoenix at the end of May 2013 and had planned to do a road trip up to San Fransisco. I'm after some opinions on a preliminary itinerary we have drafted up, and wether it is too ambitious or not?
Arrive Phoenix - 1 Night
Phoenix to Grand Canyon - Stay G.C 2 Nights
Grand Canyon to Las Vegas - Stay L.V 1 Night
Las Vegas to L.A - Stay L.A 2 Nights
L.A to Santa Barbara - Stay S.B 1 Night
S.B to Big Sur Region - Stay 1 Night somewhere in B.S
B.S to Santa Cruz - Stay 1 Night
S.C to San Fransisco - Stay 3 Nights S.F
S.F to Yosemite - Stay 2 Nights in Yosemite
Yosemite to S.F - Fly to N.Y.C 3 Night Stay.
Our flights to Phoenix are booked, however we have not yet booked our return flights, but will probably be looking to fly home from N.Y.C, something to do with the amount of airmiles for a club world flight back to the U.K?
At the present moment we are looking at 17 nights total, 14 for the California portion of the trip. We could maybe stretch to 18-19 nights.
We have a few must do's: San Fransisco, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Vegas at Night and the Pacific Coast Highway. We're not too fussed about seeing L.A, but feel we should as we are there. More interested in great scenery than cities!
Looking forward to hearing peoples opinions and recomendations.
