I am planning on driving from Chicago to LA through Memphis, Dallas, Amarillo, Albuquerque, Grand Canyon in an RV with 5 other friends. We are all in our early 20's and this is our first road trip in America. We are Irish and want to see some of the 'real' america.
Is this a better route than the traditional route 66?
Any recommended parks for a couple of days relaxation or even some that will have lots of other 20 somethings, not family orientated parks, with good night life?
Is renting an RV worth it?
Any other major MUST sees along this route?
Any other help I would greatly appreicate it.
