Places to visit whilst travelling from Grand Canyon to LA

Hello!

My boyfriend and I are doing a road trip in October and whilst the first part of our trip is sorted, we would love some ideas on places to visit while on our way from the Grand Canyon to LA. We will be leaving the Grand Canyon on 19th and flying out from LA on 23rd, so we have 4 days to explore. Any recommendations on sights and where to stay would be appreciated!

Cheers

GC to Death Valley will app take 7-8 hours and las Vegas is on your way. October is a great month for DV but Furnace Creek Inn (very expensive) only will open mid october. But you can stay at Furnace Creek Ranch or Stovepipe Wells resort. Between GC and Las Vegas you'll find many stops for R66 like between Seligman and Kingman and from Kingman to Oatman but it's no longer a one day drive between GC and DV if you visit all those places. Hoover Dam is on your way to Las Vegas via 93. If you have 4 days also consider a visit to Sedona www.visitsedona.com

I'd consider Sedona, too, as an alternative! But DVNP is great, you can't go wrong!

You could also see Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs.

Ride the tram to the top of the mountain.

Hi,

Another option is a drive through Mojave National Preserve for quite diverse desert scenery (and more Joshua trees than Joshua Tree National Park, interestingly).

Just make sure your car is topped off with fuel before driving through it (or any of the remote areas mentioned above), as there are few refueling opportunities.
