Day 1-2: San Francisco - Yosemite National Park

Bid San Francisco a reluctant farewell, once you've walked the entire length of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge that is, and head east through California; this sure is one good looking state and the scenery outside your window gets better and better the closer you get to Yosemite National Park. Once inside you'll have the opportunity to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. You're often not the only ones exploring the park with bears seen frequently in the area, and when the sun goes down listen out for coyotes howling amidst the pines and sequoias. This is a paradise for any lover of the outdoors; whatever activities you get up to in Yosemite, you're sure to have a blast.

The shows, the over the top hotels, the all-you-can-eat buffets; the Neon City's hottest spots are sure to impress. Just remember, 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas'!
