Day 1 Los Angeles

The Across America adventure begins among the busy streets and skyscrapers of the 'City of Angels'.

Days 2-3 San Diego

Head south, exiting the county of Los Angeles, and make tracks to San Diego. The climate, boardwalks and beaches in San Diego make this the perfect place to indulge in some outdoor activities. Use free time to soak up the sunshine, visit the city's world-famous zoo or relax at Mission Beach.

Days 4-5 Las Vegas

Venture out across the arid deserts of southern California en route to America's jingling hip-pocket Las Vegas, Nevada. Be dazzled by the neon signs that light up the Vegas Strip. Check out a colourful stage show, indulge at one of the many buffets or chance it with 'Lady Luck' at a roulette table.

Travel into the Grand Canyon National Park and explore the rim of this vast chasm. Perhaps opt for an unforgettable scenic flight for exhilarating views over the canyon and surrounding area.

Day 7 Lake Powell/Western Ranch

Take a dip in the warm, crystal clear waters of Lake Powell or simply laze on the sunny shores. Spend the night sleeping at a western ranch.
