Day 6: Las Vegas to Yosemite Natiional Park, California
Cash in your chips (or cut your losses) and give Mike Tyson's tiger back - we're swapping bright lights and high rises for mountain ranges and waterfalls.

Day 7: Yosemite National Park to San Francisco
Yosemite is like watching a nature documentary. In high definition. With 3D glasses. And epic surround sound.

Hello San Fran! As you take a city tour of SF you'll stroll the Golden Gate Bridge, spot 'The Rock' that is Alcatraz and hit up North Beach and Chinatown for a cultural discovery tour.
