My roommates and I are looking to take a roadtrip from Fargo, ND to San Francisco, then down the coast to San Diego, and back to Fargo. It would be in mid-May when we get off school! The route we have picked out right now looks like this:
Black Hills, SD
Salt Lake City
Other CA places (I'll probably ask about those later!)
Cedar Rapids (one of the girls lives here)
Minneapolis (the rest of us live around here)
What I'm wondering is if anyone has any insight into these decisions:
Reno- Only one of us will be 21. Our route takes us literally right through it, but is there anywhere else around Reno that would be more fun for U21ers? Like, say, Carson City?
Vegas- Once again, the same problem arises, only one of us will be 21. We were thinking about going through Phoenix and then the Grand Canyon instead. Is Phoenix the place to be or are there other cities in Arizona that would be more worth our time? Or should we just stick with Vegas and skip Arizona completely?
Cheyenne- Is it worth going out of our way to see Cheyenne, WY? I've heard from a few people that it's kind of a cool, quirky city and that we might be able to find a few cool things there. Worth it or leave it out?
Death Valley- We kind of discussed wanting to see Death Valley. Will we see it if we decide to go to Phoenix instead of Vegas? Is it worth it?
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!!!
