On Feb 14th my wife and I will be arriving from Brazil to LAX for our holidays. We are planning on driving straight from the airport to Las Vegas and my wife heard of this longer route that takes us through some ghost towns and even a small part of the Route 66, although I can only find directions driving through I-15. Is it the same route as my wife was told? If not, does such route exists?
After our time in Vegas and the Grand Canyon I am planning on driving back to San Francisco, with one night stop at the Sequoya National Park. Which would be the most fun route to this destination? Is the park any interesting during this time of the year? We were told not to go to Yosemite since due to winter time there would not be much to be seen.
Then from SF back to LA we will take the Hwy 1 through the coast. Any problems with this road during this time of the year?
As you can see, driving is for both of us, great part of the fun therefore we are looking forward driving through some of the best sights available.
