  1. Default Dallas to Las Vegas

    Hi there i'm new here so please be gentle,

    We are planning a trip from Dallas to Las Vegas and was wondering which route to take/sights to see.

    We are from England and our ages are around 35, love big steaks and the odd drink ;0).

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Justin

    P.S the dates were looking at are around the middle of September and looking to stay in Vegas for 4 nights so that will leave us around 9 days traveling.

    Default Lots of Time for a Great Drive

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Nine days is actually quite a lot of time to cover the distances involved, so you'll be able to see and enjoy quite a number of sights along the way. Your basic route would follow US-287 northwest out of Dallas and up to Amarillo, TX and then I-40 west to Kingman, AZ and finally US-93 to Las Vegas. There will be plenty of opportunities for big steaks as you drive through Texas cattle country, just keep your eyes peeled. Other places of interest on that route, or short side trips away, include Cadillac Ranch, Santa Fe NM, Petroglyph National Monument outside Albuquerque NM, Painted Desert/Petrified Forest National Park, Meteor Crater, the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. A thoroughly interesting drive, all things considered.

    If you love big steaks, a must stop is the Big Texan in Amarillo, plan on arriving around dinner time.

    I do have to point out the rules. They seat you at a table on a raised stage that has a big clock over your head. If you fail, it will cost you $90.
