Ok everyone I'm looking for some advise . Leaving LA on a Tuesday morning I'm assuming from what I have read after 9am is good? I'll be staying up in West Hollywood area . Want to take the most exciting route possible to Vegas. I don't need to be in Vegas until at least after 6/7pm . I have 2 kids 11 and 7 . I was thinking of going I-15 and stopping in Calico at the Ghost Town or going through Palm Springs and coming up through Lake Havusu . Or go up through the mojave desert ? This is all happening on the 18th of Febuary 2014 . So any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
