Hi all fellow forum members,
Me and my wife are planning a 1 month trip to USA in May/Jun 2012....1st trip for my wife...I have been there before....
We are new to this site and not sure what to say...But i think we know what we want out of this trip...Atleast to make my wife happy...
We have been married for 2 1/2 years and this is the first trip we were able to put together due to my work requirements....
Trying to make it as comfortable as possible for both of us......
Any help from you all would be of great assistance in planning our trip with ease and comfort....
Our trip plan is as follow - Yet to be confirmed
Day 1 Arrival at Los Angeles International Airport from Sydney
Day 2 Disneyland
Day 3 Los Angeles - Solvang - Hearst Castle - San Francisco (381miles)
Day 4 San Francisco City Tour
Day 5 San Francisco - Yosemite National Park - Los Angeles (523miles)
Day 6 Los Angeles - Grand Canyon West Rim (489miles)
Day 7 Grand Canyon West - Las Vegas (272miles)
Day 8 Las Vegas - Ethel M Chocolate Factory - Los Angeles (265miles)
Day 9 SeaWorld San Diego (121miles)
Day 10 Universal Studios - Departure: (10miles)
Here......We are planning to spend another day catching up with my uni mates from (2002 batch)
Day 10 evening - Day 16 afternoon (need to fit something in here)
We are thinking of spending Day 10 night in LA and then plan something from Day 11 - Day 16
We were thinking of going to HOUSTON to visit a friend and thought this would be a little break prior to us starting on the east coast. But its a long way form LA and then we need to get from there NY...What do yall think?
Will it be a better option to make do a HAWAII get away for 5 days instead?
Or do you have anything else in mind that we should be doing ?
Day 16 Home - New York City (Night Tour)
Day 17 New York City (Full Day)
Day 18 Philadelphia - Washington D.C. (136 miles)
Day 19 D.C. - Hershey's Chocolate World - Corning Glass Center - Niagara Falls (3061 miles)
Day 20 Niagara Falls - Toronto (79 miles)
Day 21 Toronto - Thousand Islands* - Ottawa - Montreal (423 miles)
Day 22 Montreal - Quebec* - Boston (552 miles)
Day 23 Boston - Hometown
Day 24 – New York - Just looking around and catch up with my Uni friends
Day 25 to Day 29 – New York/Ohio (Spend some time with my brother and his family)
Day 29 - Back to Sydney
1. Do you think its a good plan?....
2. Hawaii or any other suggestions for 5 days?
3. Are we missing out on anything that we should think about?...
4. Tour group details?....Can someone find out about the tour service if i could provide you with the details?....
5. Discounts for service personnel?.....do i have to look out for any specific websites?....
6. La Quinta Inn & Suite (What do you think of this hotel in LA)?
7. Internal flights...When is the best time to book them?
8. Have anyone travelled on DELTA Airlines or Virgin Airlines to and from SYD - LAX or NY - Syd....Which one to go for?....or should i stick with Qantas?.....
Will think of more questions when it hits my mind and add on as the time passes
Also for your information i have been to 38 countries so far....Will try and give as much as information as i can when i can.....
Looking forward to hear from you all lovely people....
