Road trip from Tucson to LV, LA and SF in a week?

Hi people, I'm from Argentina and I'm possibly travelling to tucson for work in August.

I'd want to know if it posible to visit Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco in a week? or I'd miss many places?

Can I leave the car in San Francisco if I collected it in tucson? is there any extra charge? is it expensibe?

Any advise for my road trip?

Thanks in advance.

You could drive to all of those places, but it would be pointless. You wouldn't have time for any of them.

Thanks RedRox

not even two days in each city to visit the most famous places?

That's a lot of driving. You really wouldn't get to see much in any of those places. At a minimum, driving from Tucson to Las Vegas takes most of a day and from there to San Francisco is a very long day, or even two days. And yes, it will cost you a lot more to rent a car in Tucson and drop it in San Francisco.

>>My suggestion is for you to find an exquisite vacation rental in Tucson with some tourist attractions just ten blocks away.<<

The OP is possibly coming to Tucson for work; I doubt a vacation rental is in the cards.

If you use a broker from outside the USA often no drop off charges for a rental car between Az and Ca. Maybe try this one: www.carhire3000.com

Tucson to LV crosses mostly desolate desert land. There will be darkness and lots of wildlife on the highway. I don't advise doing it at night.
