  1. Default San Diago to Vegas quirky overnight stay

    The last leg of my 2009 summer roadtrip is from San Diego to Las Vegas Im wondering if anyone could recommend a halfway (ish) point to stay overnight? I know its only a few hours drive but Im looking for somewhere a little quirky and cool.
    Any suggestions would be great

    Default halfway

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I'd say that Barstow could be your best bet. Its an old route 66 town that still has several of the classic mom and pop motels, but being at the junction of 2 major interstates, it also has plenty of the modern chain choices as well.

    Default Two Ways Around

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Since you're going to be taking your time on this drive, you could take the usual route up I-15 through the eastern edge of the Los Angeles basin to Las Vegas and make your overnight stop at Victorville or Barstow as Michael suggests. Or you could take a slightly longer and more quixotic route that first head east to El Centro, and then head north on CA-111/CA-78 to Quartzite, cross over to Arizona and then take AZ-95 north to I-40, cross back into California and finish up on US-95 north to Las Vegas, or even cross Hoover Dam on your way. On this route, possible overnight stops would be Quartzite or Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
