I'm driving from the Hoover Dam to the Valley of Fire. Are there any noteworthy places to stop between them?
Also, if anyone has any recommended routes, I'd be up for that! Looking at the map it seems like Route 166 would be a pretty drive and fairly direct.
I'm staying in Henderson, so any local places around there would be appreciated, especially if the foodie finds are few and far between on the trip. I can eat a big breakfast and/or buy a nice lunch to take with me.
Also, would people recommend driving out to VoF first and then working my way back to the Dam, or starting at the Dam?
