Road Trip #1 : California-Nevada-Arizona-Utah (March/April 2016)

A Road Trip is an amazing way to discover a country and especially in the USA. The scenery is just breath taking. It’s like a show from your car. Also, you better like driving cause you are going to drive for long hours and some roads are straight and endless. There are so many different Road trips you can do. Depends on how many days or weeks and what you want to see. Here are some ideas… 🚗

9 DAYS – 2 PARTS

For some reason my best friend Bruna couldn’t make the entire road trip with me. My boyfriend decided to join me for the second half. This is why I chose to land in Las Vegas. Otherwise a start in Los Angeles would have been the best. I spent 4 days with Bruna in Nevada and California and 5 days with my boyfriend in Nevada, Arizona and Utah.

HOW MUCH DID IT COST ?

☆ Flight : $340 / pers (from Seattle)

☆ Rental : $290 (Enterprise) / 3 pers

☆ Gas : About $225 (~2000 miles) / 3 pers

☆ Hotel : $300

  • 2 nights = Couchsurfing = FREE
  • 1 night = RV = $52 / 2 pers
  • 5 nights = Hotel = $248 / 2 pers

☆ Visit :

  • $86 Universal Studio Los Angeles (Cheaper online) / pers
  • $80 National Parks Annual Pass
  • $20 Monument Valley
  • $28 Antelope Canyon / pers
  • $65 Canyon Trail Rides Bryce Canyon (Horse ride) / pers

 

I planned and booked everything about a month before. The earlier you book, the cheaper you will pay. You definitely can find a flight for Las Vegas for less. If you are under 25, you will pay more for the rental because of the insurance. It’s also more expensive if you drop the car off in a different place than where you picked it up. I usually book my flight with Kayak, the car with Rentalcar.com and the hotel with Booking. 

I like to use Couchsurfing when I’m travelling in the City, either for the night or just to hang out. It’s a nice way to meet people, share culture and whatever you like, and you have someone to show you around or give advice about where to go. Usually, you’ve already researched online what you want to do and what you want to see but they can advise you about places less touristic.
