Hi all. I am busy planning a 3 week road trip from 10 Oct 13' - 1 Nov 13' for my husband and I + another couple. We are in our late 20's.
We are starting off in Vegas for 2 nights followed by 1 night in a of the few national parks (Zion, Bryce, Lake Powell, Monument Valley and Grand Canyon.)
We will be booking accommodation in the major cities (Vegas, National Parks, LA, San Diego, San Fran & NYC)
Do you think that its essential that we book all the in-between 1 night stops. Ie. Phoenix, San Simeon, Monterey. Ideally we would like to keep some sense of adventure & surprise but don't want to be stuck without a place to stay or paying a fortune. Is October a busy time in these destinations?
Any further tips & advise would also be appreciated.
