Looking for a fun adventure from the desert to the beach and back? Well, you've come to the right place! Over the course of 9 days, 4-8 TripMates and I will drive from sunny Phoenix, AZ to fun and exciting Los Angeles, CA where we'll spend some time exploring the sights and the beach and go to a theme park of our choice (whether Universal Studios, Disneyland, or one of the many other theme parks in SoCal). After spending some time in L.A., we'll take the long way back to Phoenix, with a little stop in Las Vegas!

A little more about me: My name is Gadija. I'm 26 years old. And I've spent my whole life traveling. My friends and family joke that I've spent more time on the road, in a plane, or in a hotel than I have in a house... And they're probably right! On a trip, I like to have a few planned activities with spontaneous adventures scattered throughout.

We'll be staying in hotels in Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. We'll be sharing rooms, with 2-3 people in each hotel room. The hotels will be close enough to nightlife/activities but still in safe areas within these cities. The hotels will be lower brands within popular chain hotels (Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt. Why should you go on this adventure with me? Well, because I've done this same road trip many times now, I'm an expert! I will do my best to make sure that your trip goes safely and smoothly, and that you enjoy this trip just as much as I always do. Feel free to reach out in the Q&A if you have a question. I hope you join me on this exciting adventure!

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-3
We'll meet at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (specific meeting time TBD), get in our rental car, and head off to the hotel. Over the next few days, we'll explore some of the Valley's best attractions, including Old Town Scottsdale, Butterfly Wonderland, and Hurricane Harbor, before hopping in the car and heading to LA.

Los Angeles

Day 3-6
After a lovely 5-6 hour drive, we'll finally arrive in L.A.! Depending on how everyone's feeling (tired, hungry...), we'll grab some food, and possibly do some light exploring before heading to our hotel. Over the next few days, we'll explore all that L.A. has to offer. We'll pick out a theme park to visit, spend some time at the beach, explore Hollywood, and more.

Las Vegas

Day 6-8
On our way back to Phoenix (Yes, Las Vegas IS a bit north of both Phoenix and L.A. but anyway...), we'll stop in Las Vegas and spend two days exploring this great party hotspot (shows, nightlife, casinos, and more).


Day 8-9
And we'll end our trip right back where we began, in sunny Phoenix, AZ, the land of the cacti. On our last night together, we'll enjoy some good food and reminisce about our amazing road trip together.
