I'm sorry if this thread is somewhat redundant but I'm new to this website and really short on time and could use some of your very knowledgeable experience! We're bringing our daughter home from a Texas college (Waco) to California in 2 weeks and I'm really exhausted of the I-10 route to home in San Diego. I'm trying to make it thru the I-40 possibly with time to see Area-51, maybe some wigwam motels?, grand canyon, etc... Just tired of looking at West Texas on i-10. We'd also love 'foodie's' takes on great food stops along the way. Las Vegas is fine but we've been many times so it's more just the travels from Dallas onto San Diego that would offer the most interest. Hubby loves historical, 'biggest ball of twine', etc. and since this won't offer my beachside reading vacation - I just want some new scenery to enjoy. Any help would be Soooo appreciated.
