With such a short trip just spend it in the same area. Dont waste it in airports and planes.Looking at doing two weeks in April next year. Partner has work in LA so will meet her over there once it's finished.
Looking something like;
3 nights Vegas
3/4 nights San Fran
2/3 nights New Orleans - maybe
Looking at staying mainly on the West side of America.
Really want to do Vancouver for a few nights.
