you can fly from LA to SF fairly cheap, and in SF you can rent a car to travel to Yosemite then on to LV.... however, be careful that you DO NOT have a car while staying in SF...it will cost a small fortune for parking.

Just a few suggestions... have a great trip !!!

Fair point gcorridore I haven't been specific about exactly how I will be getting around. To travel between cities I will be flying between Las Vegas & New York, Washington & New Orleans, New Orleans & San Diego. Between the rest of the cities I will be taken the bus. In the cities I will be using the public transport systems (Yes I know LA will be a pain). When required for a day trip is when I shall be hiring a car, but only if there is no feasible alternative.

Best place for a day stop between Rosarito Beach and Ensenada is Puerto Nuevo--a lobster village about another 15 to 20 miles south of Rosarito. Other than that, there aren't any other stopping points until you are within 5 miles of Ensenada.

Where are you staying in DC? I can give you an idea if it is a safe/ good place and if not I may be able to suggest alternatives. My other tip is to listen to Calcruzer, he offers very good and detailed advice. But I gotta say if I'm on a limited budget time wise I would think that Sacramento wouldn't make the cut, especially if Boston was left off. May be a bit of his California bias coming out?

Dave I have booked into the Hostel International in Washington. Thanks for the tip on Calcruzer too. I shall always listen to what most people have to say and then try and sort the crap from the nuggets of gold.

Calcruzer I think you may have misunderstood my question. I was not trying to find a place between the two, but which one out of the two would be the best destination to visit.

not really biased, as I would say what I am more familiar with. If I lived on the east coast, no doubt my familiarity would be far different.

And I rather think that it is not accurate to say that if you strike boston, then sacramento is a no... can you do justice seeing boston in a half a day? Best to allot a minimum of two days in Boston. But if a person who has never been to California is driving from San Francisco to Yosemite, there are some things to see that are really worth while that don't take much time at all.
