Roadtrippin’ the States is probably one of the best ways to spend your holidays actively, but also one of the most amazing honeymoon ideas. Our West Coast road trip was just unforgettable! There is no more comfortable way to explore this spectacular country than by car. How to rent a car in the US?
Planning the US West Coast road trip itinerary IS a challenge. There are so many amazing attractions but within long distances. However, we managed to visit four states in less than 3 weeks: California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. We started in Los Angeles, but of course you can customize the entire route to take off in eg. San Francisco. Let’s see how our West Coast road trip itinerary looked like.

Yosemite – this is an icon. Fans of rock climbing will instantly think about walls of El Capitan, Half Dome, Mount Lyell… Just to name a few. Many historic climbing routes were led in this National Park. Please don’t be discouraged – Yosemite has much to offer also for those feeling more comfortable in the lowlands. These are the best things to do in Yosemite!
I never saw a Big Tree that had died a natural death. Barring accidents they seem to be immortal, being exempt from all diseases that afflict and kill other trees. Unless destroyed by man, they live on indefinitely until burned, smashed by lightning, or cast down by storms, or by the giving way of the ground on which they stand.” wrote John Muir. He was also known as John of the Mountains, as he dedicated all his life to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. His efforts contributed to the creation of Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks and many other protected areas. What to see in Sequoia National Park?
I looked at the map. Monument Valley was so far away from our planned route… I thought – there is no option, we can’t make it. With just one click I deleted this point from our road trip schedule, carefully kept in Excel. And then Michal came: When are we gonna take our Monument Valley tour? What? Are we not going? I may not go to San Francisco, but this place we must visit! And me, as a good wife, I agreed with this idea in the end. It means nothing that we had to drive additional 8 hours in total. It’s nothing that due to lack of hotels in this area, we had to pay $ 170 per room. It even didn’t bother me to wake up at 5 a.m. to catch up with entire planned route. It’s totally worth it.

Driving through one of the most scenic routes in the world, the Pacific Coast Highway, is a must for everyone visiting West Coast. It is as popular as the legendary Route 66 (you can find more here), but far more picturesque. You just can’t miss these gems of the Pacific Coast Highway!
Our US road trip plan was extremely packed. In fact, it turned out that we will spend only two days in San Francisco, on a first day we wanted to fully dedicate ourselves to worshipping temples of shopping, so the second day would be more touristy. Visiting most famous San Francisco attractions in one day is of course possible. However, to succeed, you still need a good plan, but don’t worry – we would like to share it with you.
