I would say hundreds of thousands of people have done this trip and there is a TOP QUESTION on the CA forum on this drive and you can read that This is just the Yosemite park forum to plan your YNP vacation

Half the places you mention are not in CA so do check the Las. Vegas forum for info as well

Hi

As this is a multistate Road Trip covering 3 states, I recommend you try the Road Trips forum and/or the California state forum. This forum is just about Yosemite. You'll notice that the Top Questions (right side of the page, full TripAdvisor website) just has tips about Yosemite NP. To read about trips within the state of California, look at the Top Q on that page.

For your Yosemite stay, read the lodging and Trip Reports in the Top Questions. You'll definitely need lodging reservations and with your limited time, you'll probably want to stay in Yosemite Valley.

One tip (not about Yosemite): when you arrive in San Francisco (abbreviated SF), you won't want to pick up the car until you're done with your SF tourism. SF has great public transit and horrible parking.

One caveat is that, depending on your spring break dates and weather, the direct route east from Yosemite (Tioga Pass) may not be open. Your route will probably be south from Yosemite via Bakersfield to Death Valley, and from there to Las Vegas and then the Grand Canyon.

En route from the Grand Canyon to Phoenix, be sure to detour via Sedona. Also consider Jerome (a former ghost town) and Montezuma Castle.
