Hi, we will be travelling from vegas to yosemite in mid august. i like the sound of death valley ( as do kids age 10 and 8) . I know it's a long way so plan to stop somewhere. Can you recommend anywhere for a night. I have seen Amargosa Opera house which looks really fun but I 'm not sure if this is far enough along the route . ( I gather only 2 hrs from Vegas). Thnaks for your advice.
