Hi guys! I am new to this forum thing but figured it would be a great idea to get some honest and helpful hints on my forthcoming trip to the South Western USA.
My wife, daughter and I are leaving mid June for a three week fly-drive holiday to California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. We start at San Francisco and stay for two nights in the Holiday Inn Express at Fishermans Wharf. We then pick up a Chevrolet Impala hire car and drive to Lake Tahoe and stay for one night in the Best Western Timber Cove Lodge. We then drive to Mammoth Lakes and stay for one night in the Shilo Inn. We then drive to Yosemite National Park where we stay in Yosemite View Lodge for two nights. Then we drive to Death Valley where we at the Furnace Creek Ranch Resort for one night. Then we drive to Las Vegas and stay in The Luxor for one night (don���t worry we are coming back to Vegas for a longer stay later in the holiday). Then we drive to the Grand Canyon and stay for one night in the Maswik Lodge close to the South Rim. Then we drive to Monument Valley and stay at Gouldings Post and Lodge for one night. Then we drive to Lake Powell where we stay for two nights at the Lake Powell Resort (previously known as Wahweap Lodge). Then we drive to Las Vegas and stay for four nights in the MGM Grand on the strip. I will arrive in Vegas on the 2nd July and leave on the 6th July, so are there for 4th July Independence Day celebrations! We then drive to Los Angeles and stay in the Renaissance Hollywood hotel.
Any hints, tips, advice, mileage/time indications, must-see attractions would be massively appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
