Hi guys.. my fiance and i are getting married in vegas then have a month for driving around in a drop top to see cool places..
...my 1st thoughts are that i'd like to see death valley, la, san diago then mexico..
but i really haven't got a clue..! does anyone have any route idea for us? xox
This is a far drive from Vegas, but since you have a month you might be interested. I am a hugh fan of the Smoky Mountains. You did not list a date of when the wedding might be, but the Smokies are fantastic in the Fall. If you dont want to drive to the Smokies, I am sure that the Rocky Mountains are romantic. Hope this helps a little!
I'd recommend the Big Sur coast of California. A second floor room in a Moonstone Beach Lodge with a fireplace and view of the Pacific is a pretty romantic locataion. You can start in Morro Bay and Drive all the way in to San Francisco, with great stop offs along the way. Hearst Castle, Carmel, and Pebble Beach are a few must sees.
Well if you and your fiancée are venturous and love the outdoors then I suggest that you two travel to the Grand Canyon and then up to Sedona, AZ then maybe Zion national park and then Yellowstone. All places are beautiful and have amazing views.
Be well, MP
If you do get a chance to drive up to Yellowstone, drive through Big Sky, Montana and have a few days rest at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge. It's a honeymooners paradise!
Morro Bay, Moonstone Beach, William R. Hearst state Beach (park in the dirt lot and follow the beach to a path in the woods. Signs are posted that its private property, but no worries. The path is there for you.) Continue up Hwy 1. The drive is amazing. Take your time. Stop as often as you can. Make sure to stop at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. There is a waterfall thats right on the beach! Continue to the Monterey Peninsula and then up to San Fran. Make sure to visit the wineries around Carmel! I hope I was helpful!
badlands, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon, and Zion,
Hi, I agree hwy 101 is great. WHy not continue north through Oregon. and into Washington... Stop in Seattle and finish in Vancouver bc. AWESOME city. The drive back on hwy I-5 is not that bad.
We left Santa Cruz at 10:00 one morning and stopped on the way for coffee lunch and dinner and arrived in Vancouver at 3:00 am. You could easily do it in two days and it is an easy drive.
If you are going to be out in the west any of the national parks are a great honeymoon trip (and an annual pass is only 50 bucks!). One park that is definitely to die for and worth the trip up is Glacier National Park. There is a ton of hiking and views of waterfalls and glacier covered waterfalls, it's also where they shot some of the scenes from What Dreams May Come there. If you are into hiking there is are two backcountry Chalet's that are affordable and beautiful (Granite Park and Sperry Chalet's)
if you are going up north on the west coast make sure you go to canada to the
rocky mountains.jasper is beautiful and not to busy this time of the year---
which translates into cheapest time of the year--great ski pass/hotel packages.
and if you are there keep going to lake louise and banaff.
it is winter, so if your idea of romance, is a day on the hill then a night of snuggling
in front of a fire this is a pefect spot.
msg me if you want..i live there and can give you some great info
