Hi everyone. We are planning to take a vacation next month and are trying to decide if we can do a road trip from PA to NV or even to CA in 9 days. I have been to Las Vegas and Hollywood many times and San Francisco one time. I really want to see the Grand Canyon, Hoover Damn, Lake Mead, Colorado mountains, or go to AZ and see scenery there, I won't be disappointed if I can't fit CA in. I will be traveling with my husband and two boys who are 12 and 10 so I want it to be a very fun trip for them. Everyone wants to fly like we always do but I was thinking what an experience it would be to just drive and do whatever on the way. The problem is taking Route 80, at least half of the way out, I don't have any interest in some of the states in the beginning of the trip such as Ohio, Iowa or Nebraska.
Any suggestions..should I just fly into Phoenix or Las Vegas and rent a car for a week?
