Hi,

 

Is it possible to finish in Vegas instead of LA? If so would we be missing out much of Route 66?

 

Thanks

1) Yes.  2)  Yes, yes--a thousand times yes! 

If you are westbound, the best way to hit Vegas is via US 93 from Kingman AZ which becomes I-515 near Henderson NV.  This will take you right by Hoover Dam on an equally spectacular new bridge, opened a year ago.  You'll want to stop off and see both.  Kingman-Vegas is about 2 hours straight through.  Then you would return to Kingman and pick up 66 through Oatman AZ, and head west into CA. 

Eastbound, you could access Vegas from Barstow CA on I-15, or before Needles CA on US 95 and drive through lots of desert.  Better yet is the Kingman routing above with additional scenery for free.
