Driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in four days: what sights would you recommend?
posted by davejay to Travel & Transportation (26 answers total) 5 users marked this as a favorite
Taking a need-a-break vacation by myself, four days driving the southwest United States and five days in Chicago visiting friends and family.
The driving portion starts in Los Angeles, with the ultimate destination (four days later) of Las Vegas to catch my flight to Chicago. My intention is to drive between six and twelve hours a day, stopping whenever it amuses me to do so and seeing whatever sights I can see.
My concrete goals are limited to:
1. Making it to Las Vegas the night before my flight;
2. Being in an extremely low-light-pollution area one evening to see if I can finally see the milky way in the fashion nature intended it.
Beyond that, I'm totally open. My car has no off-road capabilities, but is large enough to sleep in if the need arises. If you were me, where would you go?
