  1. Default Chicago to Las Vegas Road Trip


    My friends and I are planning a road trip from Chicago to Las Vegas!!!~
    Our plan is simply to leave on 26 December, and arrive 30 in Las Vegas for New YEAR~

    so we'll have ~4 days... unfornuately, we have no idea which route to take, or which cities/places worth visiting in between...

    - Des Moines
    - Salt Lake city
    - Denver (worth driving thro the national park in early January?)
    - Kansas city

    any possible suggestion for which route we can take and where to stop?

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    By the most direct route, your trip is about 1750 miles, meaning you won't have too much time to explore the other places you'll be passing through. Expect to spend 8 hours each day on the road. Adding Kansas City into the mix adds about 100 miles to your trip; going to Salt Lake City, and not including Kansas City, adds about 200 miles.

    Here's a potential route:
    Day 1: Chicago - Omaha, NE
    Day 2: Omaha - Denver, CO
    Day 3: Denver - Grand Junction, CO - this stretch gives you time to get out and explore the scenery
    Day 4: Grand Junction - Las Vegas, NV

    This route assumes you'll be sticking to the Interstates - 80, 76, 70, and 15.
