Help with a trip!!

We would like to fly to Las Vegas in September and after relaxing for a couple of days make our way to Highway 1. We have been to San Francisco Yosemite Death Valley so really want to avoid these areas if possible. What we really want to spend time doing is the road trip around the Monterey area down to Santa Monica and then finish back in Vegas for a couple of nights before flying home! Can anyone help with some suggestions of where to go and what to see. By the way we have done Highway 1 briefly before but I was unwell so slept most of the journey along Big Sur!!!! The alternative is fly into San Fran and home from Vegas but drop off charges for the car and the price of single flights adds quite a bit to the cost.

Hi

I'd postpone this trip till 2018. Hwy 1 will still be closed so you can't access everything. And since that's the reason you're visiting, save this trip for the future.

The Top Questions on the right has specific details about the closure, access points, detours, and more.

Yes, you can still do it, but it would require a detour.

September can be one of the hottest months of the year in Las Vegas, so it won't be very relaxing. October would be better.

There shouldn't be any one-way car drop charges, and flights are almost the same if you return from SF, so re-think that plan. Mid-October is showing flights around 650 between London & Vegas and if you return from SF the price is 630.
