Glad to have just joined the RTA community! My friend and I are considering meeting up in Las Vegas to do a 5-6 day road trip during the week between Christmas and New Years (around 25th-30th). We can maybe make it a tad longer. Any recommendations on which direction to go in if you had a week? Need to return to Vegas at the end. I have researched northern Nevada, southern Oregon, Utah but trying to get a feel for what will be doable. We love small town America so looking more for quirky destinations, interesting things to see as opposed to ski/winter activities. Also, last spring we did a southwest road trip and came into Vegas after driving through Arizona on Route 93 (also did 40 with Flagstaff) so would ideally like something new, maybe even the southern tip of Idaho. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Many Thanks.
P.S.The alternative trip we were considering was driving straight from DC down to New Orleans via Kentucky/Tennessee/Arkansas in which case it would be an 8-10 day trip.
