Vegas to San Fran Overview
- 2014-01-01 - 2014-12-31
Travel from Las Vegas to San Francisco and visit Yosemite National Park
Hit the open roads of California and Nevada. On the way from Las Vegas to San Francisco, wind through the barren deserts of Death Valley and the evergreen forests of Sierra Nevada. After beginning among the wacky characters of Sin City, leave the desert city behind and head for California's bountiful mountain region, including its most famous national park – Yosemite. Combining two ever-changing cities with consistently astounding natural beauty, this trip is a great way to experience a taste of what road-tripping in the USA has to offer.
What's included in this trip
Vegas to San Fran SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to Vegas – a hedonistic, hell-raising, party town. Perhaps arrive early and get a few hangovers under the belt before you hit the road, or simply enjoy this crazy place at a pace that suits you.
Brave the scolding desert heat of Death Valley and, after sweating it out a little, come to terms with one of the United States' most unique ecosystems. If the conditions are favourable, take a small walk onto the sand to see how life manages to survive among the inhospitable terrain.
It might be a little tough to pronounce at first, but Yosemite is arguably the United States' premier national park. From the giant granite domes to the gushing waterfalls that feed the stunning forests and lakes below, Yosemite will take your breath away at every turn. Enjoy free time in the park to tackle some of the hiking trails, hire bikes or just bliss out at the tranquil surrounds of Mirror Lake.
Be romanced by the incredible Bay Area, including its crown jewel – the progressive and popular city of San Francisco. Time-permitting, consider sticking around for a few days after the trip's end to check out some of this great city's other attractions.
