We are planning our first trip to America next July.
This is where I get stuck: we will be heading for a ranch in Tuscon for 3 nights, do we take a long drive to pheonix, stay a night then drive down to Tuscon? Is it an interesting journey on route 8 or should we fly direct to Tuscon?
If we did we would have a spare night to fit in somewhere? Any suggestions? I haven't heard great things about LA but is it worth staying a night to do Universal or adding extra time in Yosemite or elsewhere along route?
From Tuscon we are flying to Las Vegas for 3 nights with poss visit to Grand Canyon when we get there via helicopter.
Any suggestions gratefully recieved.
