I'm planning on taking a cross-country road trip really soon from New York City to Los Angeles. I've had some experience with shorter road trips to neighboring states, but this time I'll be on my own for the first time and on a much longer trip.
Most of my plan is to take I-70 west, and then switch to I-15 south until I hit LA.
I'm looking to get there in the shorts amount of time, but willing to kill myself doing it and I don't mind enjoying the scenery along the way. If there's a route with less traffic and a easier drive I won't mind it, even if it were a bit longer.
Also, some once suggested switching to the Historic route 66 since it ends at LA. Not sure If I should take that instead?
If anyone has any suggestions, advice, or tips I would really appreciate the help.
