In September I am visiting Las Vegas and then travelling to see friends in Austin, Texas. (Not sure on exact dates yet).
I would like to use this opertunity to explore / visit a number of places along my route.
My initial toughts are to Fly into Las Vegas spend 3 or 4 nights there, then hire a car and drive down to Austin.
En-route I would like to stop off at a number of places to break the travelling up.
My thinking is to travel 6 hours maximum each leg of the journey, stop off at a hotel/motel stay there for a night or even a day or 2 and carry on until I reach Austin. I am allowing myself around 7 days to complete the journey from Vagas to Austin.
Along the route I would like to stop off and spend at least a day at The Grand Canyon.
Do you have any suggestions of other exiting towns/attractions which would be a good place to stop along the journey.
Also do think that my general plan is do-able in 7 days.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
