Day 1 Los Angeles

Arrive in Los Angeles, the 'City of Angels'. Perhaps touch down a few days earlier to get a feel for this sun-blessed city, soaking up the sights of Santa Monica or following the star-studded sidewalks of Hollywood all the way to Beverly Hills.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Day 2 San Diego

Take a leisurely drive South, to a city that's made a living off staying outdoors and enjoying the sunshine. Perhaps say hi to some of the locals at the famous San Diego zoo, explore the historic old town or grab a board and head for the beach.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 1

Day 3 Joshua Tree National Park

Leave the coast behind and head for the Mojave Desert. Search for the famous Joshua Tree that lends its name to the renowned national park (and a U2 album). Marvel at the peculiar geology and Wild West feel of this alien landscape and be amazed by the giant boulder piles that litter the horizon.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 1

Days 4-5 Grand Canyon National Park

This is it. The big ticket, the show stopper - the mighty Grand Canyon. Travel to the rim of the canyon and peer down to the valley floor, perhaps embarking on a hike among the canyon walls. With eagles soaring overhead and the giant chasm extending infinitely toward the horizon, this is an American experience not to be missed.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 2

Days 6-7 Las Vegas

Breeze into legendary Las Vegas, playground of the rich and reckless. Even for those who prefer not to try their luck on the card tables, this city still boasts plenty of attractions. Hit the town with a limo, people-watch in a bar or head along the Strip for some weird and whacky Vegas attractions.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Day 8 Death Valley

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.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 1

Days 9-10 Yosemite National Park

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.
ACCOM: Camping (with facilities) - 2

Days 11-12 San Francisco

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.
