  1. Default Road trip from Phoenix, AZ to Boise, Idaho

    I am trying to figure out the best place to stop for the night between Phoenix and Boise. I need to do the trip in 2 days. If I stop in Vegas for the night, with the trip from Vegas to Boise be too long if I need to get to Boise by 4 pm? Are there any better places to stop for the night that are close to the midpoint of the trip?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Vegas isn't far enough to go, if you want to make it to Boise on your timeframe.

    Actually, I wouldn't even go via Vegas for this trip. I'd go up through Flagstaff and use US-89 into Utah, and use I-15/I-84 for the trip onto Boise. Fillmore, Utah would be a bit more than halfway and has a decent selection of motels to pick from.

    Going via Vegas would be tough, assuming you were thinking of then using US-93, as that goes through some very remote country, and there really aren't any good places to spend the night in your target area.

    Midwest Michael, thanks for the advice.

    If you can spread this trip over three days that would make it perfect trip. One day/night in Vegas and second stop in Jackpot, ID or via US93...

    Just to add to other suggestions...

    Jackpot is actually in Nevada -- there are about 5 or 6 places to stay there, if I recall correctly.

    On this thread, post #71 has a photo of a rest area just south of Jackpot, NV.

    If I recall correctly, that was one rest area where I was very glad that we'd tucked a roll of toilet paper under one of the seats in the car!
