We are making our first trip to the US with a plan to drive the following route, we have tried to limit the distances to allow comfortable driving times and leave time for taking the scenic route. I would welcome any advice on the best routes between each to ensure we can get to see the best views of the country. Also, any recommendations of good stopping places either for attractions or places to eat or places worth making small detours to visit would be appreciated.
Ideally we would also like to find some of the historic route 66, if can anyone suggest the best part within striking distance of our planned route. We will be travelling in August if this has any bearing.
Las Vegas (few nights to see Grand Canyon, Hoover dam and may find route 66)
China Lake (Death Valley)
Sequoia National Park
Yosemite National Park (a couple of nights)
Any suggestions appreciated ,
