My partner and I (from the UK) are planning to travel the west coast and hopefully get married whilst out there. I have done some research but could do with a lot of help!
Planned to depart October 23rd and have 3weeks with a very loose plan as follows...
Day 1 - Fly London to San Francisco Airport - where to stay?!
Day 2 - San Francisco (MUNI 3 day visitor passport for transport??) - site seeing
- Golden Gate Bridge
Day 3 - San Francisco - site seeing/shopping - Alcatraz
Day 4 - Pick up car, drive to Yosemite National Park (4hrs)
Day 5 - Yosemite NP
Day 6 - Yosemite NP
- or straight to big sur?
Day 8 - Big Sur, Pfeiffer State Park/beach. Evening meal at Nepenthe ??Need a second day here
Day 9 - Drive to Santa Barbara (4hrs) afternoon here/stay over?!
Day 10 - Drive to LA (1 1/2hrs)
Day 11 - LA - Venice Beach,
Day 12 - LA -
Day 13 - Drive to Las Vegas (5 1/2 hrs)
Day 14 - Vegas
Day 15 - Vegas
Day 16 - Drive to Grand Canyon (4 1/2 hrs)
Day 17 - Grand Canyon
Day 18 - Drive to San Diego (8 1/2hrs)
Day 19 - San Diego
Day 20 - San Diego
Day 21 - Fly home from San Diego to London
We'd look to get married in the first week as my parents will be with is for this part of the trip. I know we'd need to get the marriage licence and then an officiant to marry us and would like to do this on a low budget as there will be just the 4 of us.
Are we trying to do too much? If so where should we take days off/add. Should we miss off San Diego?
Any help or tips would be much appreciated!
