San Francisco to Los Angeles : The Best Road Trip in the USA

Road Trips are a once in a lifetime experience : is gonna give you the best Road Trips to do : San Francisco to Los Angeles.

The best, the biggest : San Francisco to LA

Do you have a three week vacation ? Well, here is the best road trip that will do in your lifetime. Start at San Francisco. Great city to visit with a lot of things to do. Don’t rend a car just yet. Use public transportation, bus and bikes. Then, only then rend your car and off you go into your first adventure.

First stop Yosemite

Yosemite is maybe the most amazing National Park in the USA. Bear, wildlife, trekking… it’s a stop that you must make.

Next Stop : Death Valley

Then, head to Death Valley . One of the hottest place on earth. Do not forget to bring a lot of water. It’s not joke, when it’s really hot in spring or summer, you can die in minutes if you are not hydrated enough. Do not drive too fast too, your car will suffer too.

After Yosemite, we recommend taking a short detour to Bodie . the best Ghost Town to visit in the USA. It’s been preserved and left as is since it was abandonned. It’s like the people never left though. A truly amazing experience.

Next Stop : Las Vegas

City of Sin, even if you don’t like Casinos, Las Vegas is a good stop, especially during the week. Hotel prices will be a bit cheaper, free parking and buffet. If you are on a budget, it’s a good stop.

Monument Valley

It’s not the closest landmark, but definitely a must-see. Located in Utah, this is where most Western Movies by John Ford were shot back in the 60s and 70s. You can spend the night in the Valley too.

Joshua National Park

And after that ? Joshua National Park is also a must see destination. Again, it can be very hot there, so don’t forget water, and hats. The Sun is harsh and dangerous.


Next Stop ? That will be Los Angeles . city of Angels. Loads of things to do here: the Famous Hollywood Sign, Santa Monica, Venice beach, maybe a basket ball game to see the Lakers ? The City is enormous so be prepared to spend a lot of time in your car. The view from the Griffith observatory is also a stop that you have to make. Like Cinema and tv shows ? Universal and Warner have a lot to offer. You will visite the set of famous TV shows, or maybe see a few actors…

Interstate 1

If you wanna do more, a loop, we also recommend driving on the interstate 1 to Big Sur . Maybe the most beautiful drive you will ever do. Spend the night in Big Sur, then back to LA to take the plane back home. The Road Trip of a lifetime.
