    Hi All,
    we are heading to Las Vegas for a stag in October.

    its for 9 days, we are flying into LAX and are discussing itineraries .

    Some of the guys wanna go up the Pacific coast and to Yosemite as well as
    grand canyon before Vegas - I'm thinking this is too much.

    I think it would be better to do LA, death valley (Joshua tree NP), Monument Valley, Grand Canyon + Vegas ?


    Seems like a lot but was thinking since they are relatively "close" , its ok ?

    Since you have 9 days, you have time for it. But what is your intent during those 9 days? Are you interested in partying, mostly? Trying to see the natural sites?

    Hi,
    Well to be honest my main priority is to see most of national parks as I can,
    I want to minimise time spent in tacky Vegas - and luckily so does the groom :D ,
    we all agreed that 2 days is enough for Vegas so we are on the same page at least.

    I was looking at google maps and see Zion is "close" by aswell, that could also be thrown in - maybe Joshua Tree is a bit out of the way tho ...

    Anyone reading this who has been to these places, in your opinion, whats the most spectacular and worth to photograph ?


    Thanks!

    What about driving straight to vegas, spending a night there and then go into the grand canyon, there's many different ways of visiting it. You can go on white water tours, you can hike alone, or you can just drive up to the rim and look in.

    It could be memorable to buy a tent and some kit and spend four or five days in one place really really remote? America is just so good for camping out.

    Just a random thought.
