  1. Default Chicago to Las Vegas

    Planning a driving trip. Leaving from Chicago on September 30th. We have to be in Las Vegas by Oct 3rd and will spend thee 3th and 4th there, leaving the morning of the 5th. From there we want to drive to the Calf coast and drive the Pacific highway (no particular place, just out to see the scenery). We have to be in Tuscon by the 14th for a day or two. Would like to see the Alamo after that and then head back to Chicago. Have to be back by Oct 24th. Mostly interested in scenery, historic sites, national parks. Thanks for your help!

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Its a solid 3 days of driving from Chicago to Vegas, so how much you can do on your first leg depends upon how early on the 3rd you need/want to be there. There's a million options of things you could do, with Rocky Mountain, Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon, and Zion being some of the national parks along the way.

    You won't have much time for any of that, but you'll have plenty of time for everything you've talked about after Vegas. I'd think you'd want to head out through Death Valley and Yosemite before making your way to the coast. Here are some threads that you might find interesting.
