We are going to DL 8/6 - 8/11. After that, we're not quite sure what to do. We will be on vacation for 2 weeks. We want to do 3 days in Vegas and also want to get up to San Francisco to tour and visit friends. My problem is this: If we go to Vegas right after DL, we are stuck paying weekend rates which are sky high compared to weekday rates. Does it make more sense to go straight to San Fran from DL and then go to Vegas last? How long of a drive is it from San Fran to Vegas? Is there a good place to stop over for a nite or two between the two places - somewhere with something interesting to see or do? Thanks for any advice.
