Your Motorhome Holiday
Day 1: Los Angeles - Santa Margarita (240 miles)
Once you have your motorhome, get yourself on to Route 101 and head north – you are on your way to stay at Santa Margarita Lake which is just under four hours away. They call the area around Santa Barbara “America’s Riviera” so their beaches and restaurants might make it a natural break on the way.
Suggested Campground: Santa Margarita KOA
Day 2 & 3: San Francisco (250 miles)
Head north towards San Francisco today. Please, be sure to stop at that well known ‘Folly’, Hearst Castle, as you drive through San Simeon – 65 miles into your journey. Take time to enjoy amazing coastal scenery through the Big Sur and Pebble Beach; with maybe a stop at Carmel & Monterey. Then cross the famous Golden Gate Bridge in to San Francisco.
Suggested Campground: San Francisco North KOA
Day 4 & 5: Yosemite National Park (230 miles)
An early start is recommended today for the drive across California to the town of Midpines, the gateway to the first National Park of this trip – Yosemite (Yossem-i-tee). Watch for the views across San Pablo Bay as you leave San Francisco. Spend the following day exploring the fascinating scenery of Yosemite including a visit to Bridal Veil Falls and, if you can, embark on the 2.5 mile hike to Inspiration Point before returning to your campground for a second night.
Suggested Campground: Yosemite South KOA
Day 6: Sequoia National Park (140 miles)
It will be quite a long day so an early start is recommended today. The driving will hopefully be leisurely as you drive once more through Yosemite National Park before taking the southerly route through the Sierra National Forest to the town of Fresno. After lunch take the winding, easterly route 198 to Sequoia (Si-koy-a) National Forest, home to some of the world’s largest trees, and to one of the oldest cities in California, Visalia.
Suggested Campground: Sequoia RV Ranch
Day 7 & 8: Las Vegas (260 miles)
It is almost a seven hour drive to Las Vegas today, mainly freeway, but worth it to get to the ‘fun capital’! NB: If you are travelling between September and June and can extend your journey, a route through Death Valley is really worthwhile, otherwise it will be a really long day. If you do extend your trip enjoy a night at Furnace Creek campground. The suggested campground for Las Vegas is right on the Las Vegas Strip!
Spend the following day wandering the Strip and enjoying one of the many world class acts or shows like Cirque du Soleil – any one is a fabulous choice. If time permits a visit to the Fremont Street experience is a must with free live entertainment and the amazing light show
Suggested Campground: Circus Circus KOA
Day 9: Zion National Park (150 miles)
The third National Park of this tour is coming up today – it’s in Utah and just three hours from Las Vegas. Like Yosemite and Sequoia, but very different, Zion National Park is spectacular. If you get a chance, a hike up to Angels Landing is very worthwhile, another great way to tour Zion is on horseback with Canyon Trail Rides, this may well be the highlight of your trip, rides last 1 or 3 hours!
Suggested Campground: St. George/ Hurricane KOA
Day 10: Bryce Canyon National Park (140 miles)
Today it’s a 140 mile trip to the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park. This Park is totally different to the others, and with its unmissable sights, it’s a great place to spend a day. Giant amphitheatres bristling with pink rock pinnacles that seem to glow at sunrise and sunset are the background to hundreds of back roads, hiking and biking trails and guided horseback rides.
Suggested Campground: Cannonville/ Bryce Valley KOA
Day 11: Flagstaff (285 miles)
Leave around 8am and you’ll arrive at Flagstaff by 6pm – and this includes the time for a three or four hour trip on Lake Powell. This is a fabulous man-made lake on the Colorado River. If time permits extend your trip and stay overnight to include a trip to Antelope Canyon – a photographers dream! We suggest you rent a speedboat and take it to the famous Rainbow Bridge National Monument, alternatively you can book a guided boat tour.
Suggested Campground: Flagstaff KOA
Day 12 & 13: Grand Canyon (45 miles)
After your overnight, 7,000 feet above sea level, you will probably want to ride the nearby Skyride up to 11,500 feet for an overview of the Grand Canyon, Coconino (Cocoa-nee-no) National Forest and Flagstaff itself.
Head west now, just 45 miles, to Williams, the gateway to the Grand Canyon, where we suggest you stay for two nights! If you get the chance take a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon (definitely not to be missed!) or maybe a jeep or rafting tour!
Suggested Campground: Grand Canyon/ Williams KOA
Day 14: Kingman (125 miles)
On the homeward road today but there is no need to rush away from Williams – maybe spend the morning enjoying some of the activities on offer in the area. The drive is 125 miles today – 82 of them on State Road 66, better known as the world famous ‘Route 66’ – where we hope you’ll get some kicks!! A visit to the Route 66 Museum in Kingman is a must.
Suggested Campground: Kingman KOA
Day 15: Barstow (340 miles)
The penultimate day is a bit of a long one but we have built in three stops to break the journey. Heading west, the first stop is another icon of the Colorado River – the world-famous Hoover Dam on the border of Arizona and Nevada. Stop a while and marvel at this man-made wonder before heading into Boulder City, then go south and skirt the Providence Mountains before diverting to the Mojave National Preserve. Mojave National Preserve is the penultimate stop today, a desert solitude in Southern California, singing sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6 million acre park. A visit to its canyons, mountains and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts.
Suggested Campground: Barstow KOA
Day 16: Depart Los Angeles
It’s your final day and time to head back to Los Angeles to drop off the motorhome and end the journey. You could choose to add some extra time in L.A. or head to the airport for your return flight to the UK.
