NC to Los Angeles!
I am planning this trip for end of December-beginning of January--6 or 7 days would be good. What should I try to see? Where would be a cool place to spend New Years? Is there anywhere online I can map a route other than direct from point A to point B?
One of the "funnest" for New Years is Las Vegas
New Year's Eve on the Las Vegas Strip is one HUGE block party.
Death Valley is happening place in December.
