I was wondering if someone wouldnt mind checking over an itinerary that myself and my wife have planned for our California trip in late May of this year. We are flying from London on May 22nd direct to Vegas, I hope the below breakdown makes sense...
22/5 to 26/5 -Las Vegas including a day trip to the Grand Canyon.
26/5 - Leave LV and spend one night in Death Valley
27/5 - Leave DV and drive to Mammoth Lakes for 2 nights
29/5 - Leave ML and drive to Yosemite, probably staying at Evergreen Lodge near Hetch Hetchy for 4 nights
1st June - Drive from Yosemite to Monterey. We have found a place in Marina we would like to stay and relax near the beach for 4 nights
We are both experienced behind the wheel so will be sharing the drives, the biggest of which I believe is from Yosemite to Monterey at about 4 hours. We are both in our 30's and used to driving around the UK, however I think California will be a load more fun than the M25 in rush hour!
Between us I think the main spots we want to spend a decent amount of time in are both Yosemite and San Fran itself, aswell as allowing ourselves a good few days R&R on the beach at Marina. I've tried stagger the trip between Vegas and Yosemite so that we have sufficient time to take in scenic detours and stops along the way to see places.
If anyone has any thoughts on the trip they would be greatly appreciated.
