    Default from dc metro area to vegas - first timers need advice

    We are moving out to Vegas and plan to drive from the Washington, DC area in a mini-van. We are going to take I-70. Optimistically, we hope to make the trip in four days. We were wondering if this was at all realistic. Additionally, does anyone have any advice re: problems we might encounter and/or anything we should be on the look out for? We plan to make a minimal number of stops, but would like to see some sights along the way, are there any attractions that wouldn't take us too far afield?

    Default 600 miles day

    YOu would need to average about 600 miles per day to do this 2400 mile trip in 4 days. While that's definitely doable, you would need to drive about 9 hours/day to do it. That doesn't leave much time for sightseeing. As I've never driven that route except for parts Utah and parts of Colorado, I don't have much advice to give you on that. Colorado goes through some beautiful mountain areas. Once you hit Utah it's fairly flat without the scenery in Colorado.
