Me and my roomate are planning a trip from San Deigo to Las Vegas during the holiday weekend. July 3-5th. We are probably thinking of leavign early morning on the 3rd. Spend 3rd night and 4th night in Las Vegas and get back on the 5th. It would be short but we are looking for things to do on the way. Things we are considering:
We don't want to spend all our time on the strip so is there anything cool to see within 10 mi of Las Vegas? We are also a little concerned, since this is a long weekend for everybody, there might be a lot of traffic or things might be closed. We also heard the heat this time of year is unbearable. Any advice would be appreciated.
