Hey there everyone.
I'm going on a 10-day trip from Denver out to Northern California on April 13th-25th. My friend & I will have a whole day driving between Salt Lake and somewhere near San Fran where we want to see some cool ghost towns. I'm thinking we will be driving I-80 to California--does anyone know of anywhere cool to stop around here? Abandoned towns, weird Americana, etc, off of I-80 or off of a smaller road that doesn't veer too much from that path?
Also, any ideas on a funky/interesting/not too expensive place to stay in NW Nevada or NE California that wouldn't put us too far outside San Francisco?
Thanks for your help!
[Just FYI, our departures and stops look something like this so far: Leave Denver April 13th (Fri) --> Salt Lake City, 1 night --> Reno (?), 1 night -->San Francisco, 2 nights --> Big Sur, 1 night --> LA, 2 nights --> Indio, 2 nights (for Coachella music festival) --> Las Vegas, 1 night --> Arrive in Denver April 24th (Tues).
