West Coast Rambler
Day 1 - Los Angeles to Lone Pine, California
Your USA road trip begins! Check in and greet your home on wheels. Load up the RV and hit the road as soon as you can (we recommend arriving with some snacks and drinks to cover you for first 24 hours). After your driver-guide navigates through LA's concrete jungle, you'll be greeted by the Wild West. Get to know your fellow Turtle Rabbit Travellers with an opening night barbeque organised by your friendly tour manager.
Day 2 - Lone Pine, California
Lone Pine was the shooting location to dozens of classic Hollywood Westerns, and it's not hard to see why. You're just a stone's through from Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. Hike to one of the plethora of trails in the area, get a closer look at the 4,500m (14,500ft) Mount Whitney, or explore the film museum and learn about why many John Wayne films were shot here.
Day 3 - Lone Pine, California - Death Valley OR Sequoia National Park - Las Vegas, Nevada
It's extreme driving time! Weather permitting, you'll have the chance to visit one of the hottest, driest, lowest places in North America. Temperatures can soar to nearly 50C (120F). Your driver-guide will check the weather to see if it’s safe to make it through the National Park and view the striking salt pans. Alternatively, you can drive around Death Valley and stop at Sequoia National Park, where you’ll be able to view the largest living organisms on earth — Redwood Trees.
Day 4 -Las Vegas
Go to a music, magic or theatre event. Ride a roller coaster. Try your hand at Blackjack. Count Elvis impersonators. With so much to do in The Entertainment Capital of the World, it's a good thing you have two nights here!
Day 5 -Las Vegas, Nevada - Hoover Dam - Williams, Arizona
We'll start the day at the Hoover Dam, a construction project so massive that at the time of its building, nothing like it had ever been attempted. Tour the dam site, then continue across the border into Arizona. Arrive in the evening to Williams, Arizona, the wild west town that is the gateway to the Grand Canyon. This town is proud of it’s cowboy roots, which is why they feature a reenactment of a cowboy shootout every night of the summer. Pub crawl on some of the great small-town American bars and rest up for a big day tomorrow.
Day 6 - Grand Canyon National Park
Take the full day to explore the majesty of The Grand Canyon. Your friendly driver-guide will plan this day for you, driving you into the park, leading you on the best hiking trails and helping you appreciate one of the wonders of the natural world. This far from the bright lights of Las Vegas, where the stars will appear brighter and more brilliant than usual. In the evening, take a blanket outside and enjoy the stunning views.
Day 7 - Williams, Arizona - Palm Springs, California
On your way out of Williams, leave the interstate and explore Historic Route 66, an iconic American roadway that connected Chicago to Santa Monica for millions of people. Major interstates have taken much of the traffic away from this 2-lane highway, but still remaining are the gloriously kitschy roadside attractions. Today is our biggest single day of driving, so get the board games and movies ready as you cross the desert into the Coachella Valley. You’ll be earning your swim tonight at the RV park’s swimming pool.
Day 8 - Palm Springs - Los Angeles, California
All good things must come to an end. Today you say goodbye to your friends and tour manager and prepare for your next adventure. Have your RV back by 10am, then spend the rest of the day exploring more of Los Angeles or travelling onward. If you're travelling onward from LA, your friendly tour manager will be happy to guide you to the bus station, airport, or wherever you need go next.
