Hi All My gf and I have just booked our return flights to LA (from Australia), landing 30 March and departing 17 April. We're both quite excited as I have never visited the states before, while the gf was lucky enough to visit as a child. Asides from the normal tourist things, it will give me the chance to catch up with my brother, who has been living in LA for a little over a year now. It will also give us the chance to celebrate my dreaded 30th birthday in Vegas with some friends who will also be in town at the time. So far we have penciled in the following dates: 30 March to 5 April (6 nights) - LA - see the sights, do the tourist things visit a couple of theme parks to relive our childhoods 5 April to 8 or 9 April (3 or 4 nights) - Las Vegas - chill during the day poolside, maybe do a touch of shopping, hit it hard at night 9/10 April to 13 April - SF - again see the sights, do the tourist things, maybe try and get out to the Napa Valley13 April - the GF departs for home, I am staying until the 17th, which I intend to just hang out with my brother or catch up with friends at Cochella in the unlikely event I can get a ticket Anyhow, was wondering a few things that either locals or those who have done similar can help out with: How does our initiatory look? Is it too ambitious? Any suggestions for changes or doing things differently? What are some of the 'must see' or do things in LA? Any advice of planning a big night out in Vegas? Other then the obvious, like visit Alcatraz, what else is there to do in SF (ie a local's view of the city)? Thanks, any help greatly appreciated!
