We are going to Las Vegas for 6 nights then onto San Diego for 5 nights in October. We are travelling in a party of 6 and my boyfriend and I have decided that we would like to drive from Las Vegas to San Diego instead of flying with the rest of the group. Our thoughts are that it will give us some time to ourselves and we really like the idea of jumping in the car and getting to see more of the country on the ground rather than from a plane. Hopefully getting to do some exploring along the way.
My question is - Can anyone recommend a route that will take no longer than a day, but will take in some of the amazing sights on the way? We would like to stop off at National Parks or any places of interest eg. Death Valley. We will be leaving Las Vegas on a Friday, if this makes any difference.
Thanks for your help
