I would be travelling from Torrance to Vegas (on 1st day) and back (4th day) to Torrance. I can spend 1st and 2nd day in Vegas and 3rd and 4th day on the way coming back. With help of other TA experts, I was able to find few worthy places to visit and that can go as below.
Las Vegas (77 miles) --> Cima Rd, Cima (51 miles) --> Kelso Dunes, (87 miles) --> Twentynine Palms (14 miles) --> Joshua Tree (60 miles) --> Pioneertown Rd, Big Bear --> (83 miles) --> Palm Springs (122 miles) --> Torrance
Here is maps URL --> http://goo.gl/maps/tBbFL
Where should I stay overnight on this route. Total is about 500 miles which can not fit in a day, I believe. If somebody think something can be excluded, please do suggest.
