Anyone been on a trip round america?

Just wondering if any of you guys have been on a trip around America?

I've been to my dads in America nearly every year since i was 5 as my dad used to live there (up until 3 years ago), but i want to go to some of the places i haven't been before.
The thing that has started me thinking about it is that i will be coming into some money in a few months time and i want to go on a couple of holidays.

I saw a deal on a website and posted it here but it got deleted as apparently it was an "affiliate marketing site" (whatever that is???)
Anyway, i was asking if anybody had seen a similar deal cheaper or if anybody had done the travelling to a few places in america.

The deal was for a USA Multi-centre, Las Vegas, LAX and San Francisco trip.
It had flights from Heathrow (Perfect for me) and it included internal flights in america.
I'll post the details in the next post.
I hope i'm allowed to do that as i wont be posting what website it is from but i just want to know if it's a good deal and if anyone knows any similar deals and also their experiences of it.

The alternative is either 1 or 2 weeks away to either the Dom Rep or somewhere else in the Caribbean.
I have been to the dom rep before and loved it but this deal caught my eye and got me thinking.

Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences :)

This is what it said about it:

Golden Triangle, 10 nights
Starting in fantastic Las Vegas, this tour is packed with 24-hour desert fun on the Las Vegas ‘Strip'. Then there's great shopping, Hollywood moments and good old-fashioned theme park fun in Los Angeles as well as culture and cosmopolitan cuisine in picturesque San Francisco!

Las Vegas
4 nights' accommodation at the Stratosphere Tower hotel** in Las Vegas, or similar. Get settled into 'The Strip' hotel of your choice and then it's time to discover the magic of Vegas! Get an exclusive, bird's-eye view of 'The Strip' with a breathtaking night helicopter ride over all its lights and sights (you can pre-book this with our team before you leave the UK). See the Bellagio fountains, a replica of Paris's Eiffel Tower, Luxor's famous beam of light and New York, New York's Brooklyn Bridge and famous roller coaster - all lit up, from the air! Avoid missing out by pre-booking tickets to see sell-out shows such as Cirque du Soleil. Every hotel along 'The Strip' encourages you to visit, with numerous cheap or FREE attractions. The MGM Grand has a lion habitat where you can walk underneath the see-through glass cage and look up at these creatures' giant paws. Or, visit Mirage for its hilarious 'volcano' which erupts every 15 min. Stratosphere and New York, New York are the hotels to head for if you like thrill rides, while downtown's Fremont Street Experience has an hourly (after dusk) light and sound extravaganza.

Los Angeles
3 nights' at the Holiday Inn Anaheim**, or similar. You have 3 days to explore the adrenalin-filled thrills and spills of Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios. Spend a day visiting these fantastic theme parks with their heart-stopping rides, cuddly cartoon characters and Wild West adventures. Don't forget to pre-book your theme park tickets with us before you leave. Then you still have time to see famous Hollywood sights like the Walk of Stars on Hollywood Boulevard, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the original home of the Oscars ceremony (and where you'll find all the stars' hand and footprints), as well as a studio tour at Warner Bros, where you might even see filming first-hand. Don't miss out on our fantastic movie star experience tour - book your tickets before you leave to guarantee your seats on the bus!

San Francisco
3 nights' accommodation at the Hotel Carlton**, or similar. San Francisco is a cosmopolitan city with so much to offer, including museums, entertainment, theatres, shopping, good food and fine wines from the nearby wine region of Napa Valley and Sonoma, fantastic views of the Bay and numerous historical sights and landmarks. Just as the song says, there is no doubt you will 'leave your heart in San Francisco' once you have seen all that it has to offer. Fisherman's Wharf has a seaside feel to it with the fun-filled Pier 39 - this is also where you can see the sea lions basking in the sunshine; they are noisy but fun to watch and always draw a crowd. See your Virgin Holidays' rep when you arrive and book your place to Alcatraz - it's a very popular attraction and you really won't want to miss out on a visit to the infamous 'Rock' as it is known. Wander around the world's most famous prison, take a guided tour and hear all about the history of this engaging landmark. For the brave ones amongst you, why not take a spooky ghost hunt tour around some of the city's oldest buildings?

The prices quoted below for the ‘Golden Triangle' are per person and are based on flights from London Heathrow with United Airlines and 2 adults sharing a room on room only basis in each destination.

A few years back, we flew to LA, spent a week there, then took a road trip up the West Coast all the way to Las Vegas, stopping off along the way a few nights. Spent 2 nights in Vegas & drove back down to LA to fly home.

to be honest i would pass on that.

If you want to do something really great along the same lines. spend a couple of days in vegas (unless you are gambling or seeing shows there sint much to do) The stratosphere is right at the END of the strip (Its a really really long way to walk the whole thing. you can book hotels there mid strip for the same price if you go looking, see the grand canyon. go to la (i woldnt spend more than 2 days there personally, i hated the place) but go and see the tourist spots.

go to san diego, rent a car and drive up highway one to sanfransisco. head across to Yosemite national park, have some more days in san fran and fly home from there.

you will see a lot more and some amazing sites.

For some luxury, you can spend 5 nights in Vegas, then fly to Mexico 5* all inclusive for 10 nights !

I like the sound of that but i dont want to be doing lots of driving (and getting lost lol).
I like the idea of a package deal and all the hard work being done for me.
Don't really want to have to spend days/weeks searching and organising a trip as i wouldn't know where to start.
#6
If I was doing it I would either do the appalachian trail(oldest son did this) or route 66,its all about whatever floats your boat but if it was me I would prefer something like that than constantly being in cities.

you cant really get lost on highway 1.. it runs up the entire coast ;)
the driving isnt that bad, its only several hundred miles. and you would be stopping loads on the way.

i did 8 weeks in the us on 3 days planning ;)

That sounds like fun ... if i wasnt doing the driving.
I already do about 500 miles a week with work so the last thing i really wanna do is drive 100's of miles while on holiday.
Perhaps i should go with the relaxing on the beach deal lol.
