las vegas to laguna beach ? interesting stops

Will be driving from las vegas to Laguna beach area mid september.

Can anyone recommend places to break the journey. Calico is on the plan already but perhaps there are other interesting places.

Have to complete the journey on the same day. Would like to split the journey into 3 or 4 parts of 60/70 miles.

Thanks for any suggestions

I have never driven any distance with stops so frequently even when I drove Oregon to LA with my wife, baby and dog in a VW bug. But you will love Laguna. One of SoCal's best spots.

I do that drive fairly frequently. Not a lot of scenic stops on the way. Maybe outlet stores at Primm or Barstow?

Enjoy Vegas and Laguna.

Calico is really the only stop that comes to mind, unless you want to detour through Death Valley -- but that will add considerably to the drive.

Barstow has a Harvey House, but i doubt it would be very entertaining, and it is close to Calico.

I loved Laguna Beach! DH and I spent some time there in October, too cold to swim , but we still got our toes in! Check out the tide pools, lots of lil critters in there! We didn't really stop along the drive, the desert is beautiful though!

Other than stopping to take a needed pit stop, that drive is best done at 85mph. Not much to really stop at.

You will love laguna.
