    Default New orleans to Las Vegas trip suggestions?

    In late April my partner and I will be driving from New orleans to Las Vegas and have 4 days to do it. There is so much to see but what "must see" would you guys recommend in such short time? We'll probably be passing through Flagstaff/ Grand Canyon for sure.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    NOLA to Vegas requires 3 hard days of driving to begin with, so you don't have a lot of extra time to work with. The Grand Canyon is a place that really deserves most of a day by itself, especially when you factor in the hour drive each way off of I-40. Having said that, there are several other National Parks right off I-40, like Petrified Forest/Painted Desert, and once you get to I-40, you'll be following the path of old route 66, so there are several possible detours and diversions along those lines to consider too.

    Have you checked out RTA's Map Center yet? That can give you a long list of things that would be right along the way for you to consider.
