We are looking for advice and suggestions on a roadtrip from NY to Vegas at the end of december start of Jan ,we are visiting from Scotland so plan to hire a car or 4x4 on arrival (suggestions also welcome for choice of vehicle)
We have around 8 days for trip and looking to see some of small town america , Is this enough time for such a long road trip ? and as weather is also a big factor what would be the best route to avoid any major delays (if possible )
would we be better to stay on interstates at this time of year ? but i gather from what i have read that we would miss the best places by staying on the main drag .
A route we had looked at was along the I80 so we would be heading for Denver .Is this a good route ?
All suggestions and advice welcome , We are in the early planning stages and would appreciate the knowledge of americas seasoned road trippers
