Every time I think of the West Coast of America I can’t help but hear The Beachboys playing in my head. Definitely the more fairytale side of the states with Hollywood, Vegas and San Franisco.. I will have a somewhat different experience compared to the East Coast. This leg of my trip will more than likely involve some Pretty Woman moments when I’m on Rodeo Drive, living it up on the Vegas strip and ticking off a major bucket list goal by taking a tour around Alcatraz – heaven!!! It’s also not as structured attraction wise compared to the East Coast cities, there’s a lot more freedom to explore the beautiful nature locations. On this part of the trip we’ll mainly be hiking, taking dips in the crystal waters of the Colorado River and exploring the Grand Canyon by helicopter.
