San Fran - Vegas - LA - roadtrip tips

Jump to last reply

Hi guys,

Me and my family are planning (mum, dad, my sister, me) visiting the US this summer (most of us for the first time) and taking as many of the major southern west coast sights as we can in 2 weeks or just over. I would really appreciate some comments regarding a possible route:

Los Angeles (3 nights) then to Phoenix

Length (miles): 374.4, about 5.5hours

Phoenix(1 night) then to the Grand Canyon (Flagstaff?)

Length (miles): 146.3, about 2.25hours

Grand Canyon (2 nights) then to Monument Valley

Length (miles): 198.1, about 3.75 hours

Monument Valley (1 night) then to Bryce Canyon)

Length (miles): 301.3, about 5.5 hours

Bryce Canyon (1 night) then to Zion

Length (miles): 86.3, about 1.75 hours

Zion to Las Vegas (2 nights)

Length (miles): 163.8, about 2.6 hours

Las Vegas to Sequoia National Park (via Death Valley)(1 night)

Length (miles): 132.5, 2hours to Death Valley then 340miles and 6 hours Sequoia National Park to Yosemite (2 nights)

Length (miles): 138.1, 2.5 hours Yosemite to San Francisco (3 nights)

Length (miles): 199.4, 3.5 hours

San Francisco to Los Angeles (1 night) Length (miles): 383.1, 5.5 hours



I'm pretty certain it's attempting wayyy too much. E.g I would really like to spend a few days in San Fransisco and also visit the coast, Monteray bay. ect.


If anyone has any comments, suggestions, can tell me if it's too ambitious ect. please let me know!

Thanks a lot!
