    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    "Best" route really tells us nothing about what you might be looking for.

    Lubbock is basically a full day drive from Houston, and thus you'd need a whole day less of travel if you started from Lubbock. However, if you wanted to do both cities, it would probably make the most sense to drive from Houston to Lubbock, heading up to I-20, and then on north on US-84. After Lubbock you'd continue on US84 all the way to I-40 and use that to make your way west towards the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

    keep in mind, its a minimum of 3 days from Houston to Vegas, and adding a 4th will probably be needed to see the Grand Canyon.
