Thanks for dropping by this thread. My wife and I are looking to visit USA for the very first time (for a honeymoon actually, both mid 30's) in our lives this coming April. We've booked our flights but that's just about what we've done.
We did of course browse through the net looking for suggestions on where to go, stay, eat, see, and do BUT we haven't nail down anything as yet. At this point, we only know that we will get into San Francisco on 16 Nov and depart San Francisco on 5 Nov. We plan to cover as many places as possible (including NY) but just focus on main iconic/popular attraction spots.
So here goes... our draft itinerary. Not sure if this is super ambitious. Hoping to get some feedback and suggestions as to what we might be missing. Most of the research was done using google maps and looking at what others have done. Below are also some of the things we are considering to do in each of the places we are thinking of visiting.

Feedback and suggestions will be highly appreciated. Plus, how's Nov-Dec like for road trip generally (especially Grand Canyon south rim)? Heard about road closures on certain months etc. We'll definitely get a GPS unit all the way when driving.
Thanks heaps everyone. God bless.
