From L.A. to Santa Fe and back. By Car

From L.A. to Santa Fe and back. By Car, necessarily. Next month. I'm planning a 1.5 day drive, a 3 day stay in Santa Fe (already taken care of, thanks), a 1.5 day drive back to L.A. Where should I sleep en route? I'm thinking Flagstaff, right? Sightseeing in or around Flagstaff? (touristy stuff is OK unless it's something horribily overcrowded or plainly for kids). Is the drive too long/boring? Any better ideas to make the trip more fun? Suggestions? Thanks.

Nobody walks in L.A.

Is there such a thing as an online map of Los Angeles that denotes (through color-coding, for example) the time allowed on each street for parking (e.g., 8 AM - 10 PM, 1 hour parking only), as well as street cleaning days? I just spent well over half an hour wandering through an endless maze of "2-hour parking only" residential streets in West L.A. looking for a spot where I could park all day. UGH.
