We are thinking about a late March trip to Death Valley, flying into Las Vegas and probably staying at Furnace Creek. We would have six nights, and the better part of the arrival and departure days. A few questions...
We would be renting a car, and being a fairly cautious person, I would not be taking it off paved roads. I know there are a lot of great things to see, but is there enough to see for several days without getting off road? Is there a list of what attractions are on paved roads and which are not? I would consider renting a jeep, but because of the cost, not for more than one day. What would be the best things to see on that one jeep day?
I'm not so sure that I would want to spend all six nights there, so thinking about a few days at Joshua Tree. Is this worth the drive? Another option would be to spend some time at Death Valley along with a few days at Zion. (We've been there three times and loved it).
