    we would like to spend 3 nights or so in the big cities like san fran and LA.and are very versitile with our route but would like to stick to the interstates. planning on staying mainly in motels and would really like to make it a party trip. any tips about the route or in general would be great. thank you all very much. tom.

    If you want to stay on Interstates, then you probably wouldn't want to do my suggestions, but here goes: From Seattle, head out to the coast and go to California via the coastal highway. Breath-taking scenery and, if you get bored of it or behind schedule, you can head inland from most anywhere to hook-up with I-5 South. I would head to the East via I-40 with as many forays onto Historic Route 66 as time allows. Las Vegas is just a short jaunt off of I-40. Take I-15 at Barstow, CA, and then return to I-40 via either Hwy 93 or 95. The party scene is the least important part of a roadtrip for me so I can't give you any advice in that area. Have fun!
