I am planing a road trip from Chicago to Las Vegas at the end of March and i am pretty new to the world of road trips. My initial plan was to drive from Chicago to Denver and stop there and rest for a day and then do the rest of the trip to Las Vegas. I have only driven once for such a long distance and it was from Detroit, MI to Jacksonville, FL nonstop, which was very tiring. I would appreciate some insight and ideas about how to organize this trip and where to stop, car rental suggestions since i don't want to drive my SUV (gas milage not so good) and inexpensive hotels close to the highway so i don't have to wonder to much from my route.
Thank you guys in advance,
