Firstly , I had a fun and informative time reading out quite a few posts on different road trips posted in this forum. Really appreciate the regulars spending time and advising us newbies on stuff related to roadtrips :)
Ill get right to it.
Me and a couple of friends are planning on a road trip this winter.
Dallas to Vegas
Day 1 morning to Day 1 night (approx 14 hours) driving - overnight stop( would like suggestion on which city to sleepover)
Day 2 morning to Day 2 afternoon/evening(6-7 hours) - reach Vegas
Above is the ideal plan. Judging by replies to already existing threads looks like its not going to be possible. Please advise on things to keep in mind. Google maps says 18 hours driving time. I understand that is without stops, breaks etc. But isn't 14 +8 hours reasonable?? please say yes :)
And what are 2-3 best places we can stop by on the way?? I'm guessing best route is Dallas-Wichita Falls - Amarillo - Santa Rosa - Albuquerque - Gallup - Flagstaff - Kingman - Vegas - basically along i-40
Rest of Day 2, Day 3,4,5 in Vegas
Day 5 afternoon leave to Los Angeles - 4 hour drive - shouldnt be a problem
Rest of Day 5,6,7,8,9,10 in LA
Day 11 and Day 12 planning to drive all the way back from LA to Houston.
Here's where I need more advice from this forum on how to go about.
Route, overnight stop ( which city) etc.
One route is LA - San diego (Beach view drive) - all along highway 10 all the way upto Houston.
which 2-3 places could we stop and see along with way.
Thanks in advance :)
