We are beginning our journey across the country on July 4, 2005 from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. We are planning to take- the I-80 route then linking onto I-15 in Utah. We plan on driving about 8-9 hours a day. We don't have that much time to spend sightseeing (we would like to get across in no more than 6 days) plus the fact that we will have a dog and cat in the car!
The two places we would really love to stop and visit are Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon.
Can anyone give advice on where to stop along the way? Any interesting towns worth noting?
Also, any hotel recommendations? We are looking for inexpensive stays.
Thanks so much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
