    Default Driving from San Diego to Las Vegas, stopping at the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam.

    In July we're planning a road trip from San Diego to Las Vegas, we're leaving on a Monday and need to arrive in Vegas by Thursday. During this time we want to see the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam but have no idea where to stay or what to see along the way. Please leave your suggestions!

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Starting from the fact that it's probably about a full two day drive from San Diego to the Grand Canyon and then over the Hoover Dam to Las Vegas, and that you'll need about a day to take in the Canyon and Dam, that leaves you a day that you can fill with other sights. If you're a city person, then your obvious choice is to check out the Phoenix Metropolitan area with its many museums, shops and restaurants. If you'd rather sample the Sonoran Desert and other 'Old West' aspects then I would suggest a route from El Centro up through Blythe on CA-111/CA-78/I-10 and then use US-60/AZ-71 to get to AZ-89 up through Prescott, Jerome, Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Its the last four locations that you want to pay attention to. Either way, if you can be a bit more specific about what kinds of things you'd be interested in, people might be able to offer more useful advice.
