Me and my newly wed wife are looking for a trip next year and would like to know what you guys think, how would you spend the time? We have 17 days. Plan so far is as follows:
Thurs 17th April. Flying from the UK to Hawaii. To break things up along the way, and since we'd be touching down in some cities anyway, I thought it'd be economical to have a few days in some U.S cities. I have a plan - but please give me your tips and knowledge!!!!
Thurs 17th - LON to NYC - 4 nights (3 full days) to look around NYC.
Fly to LA - 2 days there, drive up to San Fran over the course of another 1/2 days. Have 1 or 2 days in SF. Fly to Hawaii.
Hawaii - About a week to get around and perhaps see more than one of the islands. Fly home
Not booked flights yet as the above is totally flexible, could be done in any order. Originall planned LON-NYC-LAX-HNL-SFO-LON - Flights total around 1k. My plan keeps changing so I need advice. And now I'm thinking drive down or up from LA/SF or vica versa rather than flying via Hawaii.
What do you guys think?
Our interests: getting out there into nature. Seeing big cities. We do like some time to relax on the beach. A bit of nightlife. We're 25/27 y.o.
We've been to LA, San Fran, Vegas, San Diego for a couple days already. But please recommend any other cities we could visit instead of SF. (Vancouver crossed our minds). Or whether you think: just do the whole time in one place.
