australians first trip to us

Jump to last reply

Hello.We are a mature couple (kids off our hands!) planning our first trip to the U.S. and would love some advice.He is a surfer of many years and both love the beach.
We are coming from Bali (where we have business commitments) into Hawaii on May 15th, staying for 2 nights, then heading off to Los Angeles, for 2 nights.
We then plan to get to Las Vegas by either bus or drive, for two nights, then back to Los Angeles for 1 night.
We then plan to drive down to Mexico in a rental car, staying at motels etc.,trying to keep costs down, and seeing a few beaches and maybe get a few waves along the coast.
Then back to Los Angeles around the end of May and head home.
Would love some advice on problems we may incur or hints on what to look out for, or even some places to stay.Would like to know about hiring cars into Mexico and back.
We will probably try to get in a tour to the Grand Canyon while we are in Las Vegas.
Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

Bruce and Barb
