Day 4

Whale watching in Monterey

Before leaving town, try to take in the Golden Gate Park, bigger and more diverse than New York’s Central Park. It’s on the way south to Highway 1, which will bring you to Monterey and its famous aquarium. If you travel in spring or autumn we advise you to take a whale watching trip and get the full experience of the bay. What awaits is the 17 Mile Drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea, a scenic road that takes you on a tour past rugged beaches, extravagant houses and wind-blown cypress trees that rest beside an ocean filled with seals that enjoy the sunlight on offshore rocks.

Point Lobos State Marine Reserve lies just a couple of miles south of Carmel, it’s a glorious place to spend a morning or afternoon hiking amongst the coves and along the rugged seascape. This beautiful coastal spot is a firm favourite of the team at The American Road Trip Company, it’s a must for anyone driving Highway 1.

Big Sur - The drive of your life

The classic All-American drive down California’s Highway 1 is at its most dramatic when it passes through the 90 miles of coastal road that is known as Big Sur. Twisting roads curve around the steep cliffs, occasionally passing gorgeous State Parks and spectacular vista points that look towards the Pacific Ocean. Further down the coast, Hearst Castle perches on The Enchanted Hill. This is an extraordinary home that hosted the world’s most famous and wealthy.

Pools Of Palm Springs

Day 11

Swim in the pools of Palm Springs

On your way to Las Vegas you’ll find Palm Springs, which feels like a mirage in the desert as the luxurious shelter is surrounded by dry mountains on all sides. Forget your worries whilst you lay by the pool, shoot some rounds of golf, or cruise the radiant streets and take in the modernist architecture.

All To See And All To Do

Day 14

Your last day in Las Vegas

If your head hurts after a big night out, you can always relax by the amazing pools adorning nearly every hotel. Stretch your legs with a walk along the legendary 'strip', book tickets to one of the incredible shows or take some retail therapy. We recommend visiting one of the over the top buffets in the hotels. Just make sure you are hungry when you go, the range and quality of the food is amazing value! This is your last day before flying back home, so make the most of it.
