This was our planned route. The choice of visiting the West Coast was easy for us. This is by far the best place to enjoy all the great scenary the USA has to offer.

As we are not really into cities and as the USA has not much to offer cultural wise, this suited our plans fine.

On a relative short distance there are plenty of highlights and different natural gems.

I would suggest to rent a car and allways try to stay in the parks to sleep. That way you can experience the parks as you should…from inside.

We bought a tent and some cooking stuff in Walmart and camped on the numerous campgrounds in the parks. We would recommend it to everybody who is slightly adventurous.

Most hotels and motels are located outside the parks, so this is really the way to go if you want to get the most out of your trip…
