Hi guys,

Any recommendations on what to do and see? I know there's tons so I'm going to have to make a huge list. Were planning to leave Vegas Sunday July 13th. Then head to San Diego and make our way up to san fran. Any info would be great where to stop and what to expect etc. I heard there some beautiful national parks. Im going to be making a road trip video so things like cliff jumping etc would be great


Thanks

You're driving I assume? The Pacific Coast Highway is incredible going up from LA to San Francisco. I did a similar trip - Vegas to LA and then to San Fran, and got some great pictures at various points along the highway. It's incredibly beautiful. Big Sur is picturesque but done to death. The pictures I took at the Grand Canyon were also pretty incredible.

Also, I highly recommend The Sycamore in the Mission District of SF... they have these incredible little pork belly donuts with some sort of incredible dipping sauce... so good. In LA I had some great food in places around Silverlake. Santa Monica and the Pier are a cool place to visit, but don't let yourself get sucked into eating at Bubba Gump's (or any other place the pier). Trust me.

Vegas area: Red Rock Canyon (morning hours), and Valley of Fire. Personally not a fan of Death Valley, and it's a long drive.

As mentioned, the Big Sur coastal area is gorgeous. Sequoia NP, Yosemite NP.
