Planning a road trip from LA to Los Angeles in August

We are planning a road trip from LA to Las Vegas and would like advice on a route- preferably incorporating Route 66, and advice on what there is to see on route. Staiying in Vegas for 3 days and hoping to drive to the Grand Canyon-so again any tips on where to go in a mimited time would be greatfully recieved. Big thanks

Here's a website that might help: www.historic66.com Keep in mind that Route 66 departs the direct route to Las Vegas at Barstow (about half way). If you return to Los Angeles from Grand Canyon (south rim), then you can take an additional portion that parallels 66. There are two ghost/historic towns along your route: Calico, CA (off of I-15) and Oatman, AZ off of I-40. According the the website mentioned above, Oatman is on historic route 66. Make sure you reserve lodging in Grand Canyon well in advance, see www.grandcanyonlodges.com (south rim). Otherwise, you may have to stay outside of the park and drive in for the day only.
