I am moving to Denver, CO for a new job from bay area. I Need advice on choosing whether to drive or not during December as car shipping and flights are expensive. My probable days for the travel would be Dec 27th - Dec 29th. I read a few blogs which said, I-80 is not the best route in December. So, my alternate route will be I-5 to Vegas, I-15 to Zion and then I-70 to Denver. I also head that I-15 is scenic. I have a 6 cylinder rear wheel drive car.
Is it advisable to drive during that time of the year? I am also planning to drive only during the day. So, please advise on the stops and laces I can find accommodation.
