Thanks in advance if you take the time to read and reply:
My good wife wants to have a few days lying in the sun and definately wants to visit Vegas.
Here's what I think. Fly into LAX and head for a few nights in Palm Springs, drive up to Vegas, return the car have 3 nights here, fly to San Fran(Southwest probably) and spend 3 nights here and maybe pick up a few nights heading south along the Pacific Coast Highway(2nd rental car).
We have 13/14 nights to kill. Budgeting for 4 star resorts/hotels.
Frankly I have no ideas. The "Visit California" websites are no help because they really discuss places I have maybe heard of but no little about so cannot make an informed decision.
I'm a simple red blooded male. Pick up big truck, load up in Walmart and give me a sun lounger and I'm happy.
