I’ve just booked a 3 week trip to the West Coast on the 15th July! We plan to fly into San Fran and do 4 nights here, then road trip down towards LA.
Now this is where I’m stuck, as we would like to do Yosemite (2 nights) Monterey (1 night) then maybe head through Carmel and Cambria (but perhaps not stay overnight), LA (Hollywood, Beverly Hills, for possibly 3 nights) San Diego (2 nights) Palm Springs (1 night) then perhaps Santa Monica & Santa Barbara (but maybe not overnight) Las Vegas (4 nights, and maybe Grand Canyon for 1 of those nights) am I missing anything? Thinking of stopping off at Death Valley. Also the Hoover Damn (is this doable on the way through to Las Vegas) are there any other national parks which are a must see?
Finally is this order ok, or is there an easier route? Mainly querying San Fran - Yosemite - Monterey or is it best to do other way around San Fran - Monterey - Yosemite. Luckily we don’t have to do a round trip and are flying home from Las Vegas, and finally.. which hotel on the last Vegas strip do you recommend? There’s so many to choose from!!
So many questions and so little time! Thanks so much I’m advance :)
