My names Dave and I am from the emerald isle known as Ireland!
I plan to visit my girlfriend in Myrtle Beach SC and drive with her all the way over to Los Angeles via Las Vegas from the dates July 20th-29th inclusive.
My plan was to take the road leading to Birmingham Alabama, then take the road leading to Memphis TN, which would then bring me on Interstate 40...which i believe to be the historic Route 66, would i be right in thinking this?
Anyway I would follow the I-40 all the way to the town of Kingman, where i would make my turning off onto US-93, the road that leads to Las Vegas.
After my eventful trip to Las Vegas I would simply take the route until i reach Los Angeles a few hours later.
I was just wondering if anyone could give me any flaws in this route or if there is a better one to take?
Also, could anyone point out to me any tourist attraction towns/citys or monuments and places to stay overnight that one would be attracted to? I have set a maximum of three days where myself and my girlfriend could stay in a town for a day extra and two other places.
I have already set aside one of these days for Las Vegas (I have set one day for LA aswell which is not included in the three in question). Could anyone point out two other Citys/Towns that are worth an extra days stay on this track?
The reason for picking this route is that it includes historical citys and attractions such as Memphis, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam etc.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
