    currently staying in Vegas, given 3 to 4 days in middle of December, want to go to Grand Canyon, and other parks on the way. No rush , mainly taking picture and relaxing. Any suggestion?

    End of December, road trip 2 days, Which one is preferred, Mojave National preserve or Death valley or Lake mead ?

    Another road trip for next year January, Vegas to Lake Tahoe, and other park on its way, about 3 to 4 days, again no rush at all. suggestion please.

    Default Some options.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    1] You could do a loop from Vegas to Grand canyon, first heading North on I 15 and take exit 16 [state route 9] through Hurricane to Zion NP. Continue to Page [Lake Powell/Antelope canyon] and then South towards Cameron [trading post] and to the Grand canyon South rim on 64 through East gate. Possible detours would include Monument valley, Sunset crater and Walnut canyon. Out the South entrance to I 40 [with a possible detour on route 66 through Seligman to Kingman] and over the Hoover dam.

    2[&3] They are all great choices, Death valley being the most popular. However, you could visit DV on route to Lake Tahoe. Drive across DV to 395 and up through Lee Vining [Mono lake] and come back down the 95 via the old mining town of Tonopah. Lake Tahoe See's a lot of snow and is a winter resort, you will need to carry snow chains in your vehicle. Keep an eye on weather and road conditions before and during your trip[s].
