Southwest Road/Plane TripI'm planning several trips. This March I plan to hit these areas in the southwest in this order. Can everyone please help me pick specific CITIES and specific THINGS TO DO/activites?
Also, while researching these locations, I was once told to reverse the order for weather reasons. Let me know if that is true.
I'm in my early 30's --- and like fishing, outdoors, hiking, sports, eating healthy food, drinking unique beer, drinking wine, bars/music/jazz all great.
I'll have a rental car the entire time - and I plan to fly to areas where the drive is more than 4+ hours.
Money/time is not an issue, I can go wherever and stay wherever.
San Francisco CA (yosemite)
Las Vegas NV
Sante Fe NM
Dallas? Houston? Fort Worth? TX
Specific suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you!!

1Wyoming is a Rocky Mountain state, it is not considered in the "Southwest"
March is not the time to travel in Wyoming unless you are planning on deep winter conditions, skiiing, and are properly prepared for snow and very cold conditions. Very limited access to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
I don't know why you have Yosemite listed under San Francisco.
I suggest you get ahold of the LP USA travel guide and read it. Your other 17 posts seem to want to have others plan your trip without you understanding some of the basic regional weather conditions and geography of places you have on your list.

2Loving this site. Thanks for the education. As I explained, no, I don't have experience traveling and I am slightly aware of the climate. I'm here for help so if you'd like to help me through this, that's great.
I can remove Wyoming. I only thought it was a place to see because its closer to UTAH and UTAH seemed warm closer to MAY. So I could always move the trip to May for warmer weather? Or I can Skip Wyoming?

4Wyoming only has mountains in the western edge, the rest is high plains, cold and windy in winter (about 8 months of the year) and hot & windy in summer. Only habitable parts are Jackson and maybe Laramie (if you aren't gay).
