I highly suggest for anyone who lives within reasonable driving distance to Vegas to forgo the flight this time, grab some snacks and some tunes and hit the road for a drive through the desert. Over the years, Ive developed an affinity for the Orange County Ca to Vegas drive. Most people see it as a boring 4 hr trek but to me it has become part of the Vegas experience. Im sure anyone who has done this drive has taken note of all the curiosities along the way. The worlds largest thermometer, Calico ghost town, Zyzyx rd, the abandoned waterpark, Primm (stateline, sight of the trips first gamble always!), and more. Passing each of these locations means im one step closer to Vegas and the warm and fuzzies increase! Viva the Vegas road trip! Cheers.
