Today you will head towards the city in Mojave Desert, California Barstow. Stop by a great outlet mall and enjoy shopping at factory discounted prices. Overnight stay in Barstow.

Day 2 BARSTOW DEAD VALLEY NATIONAL PARK LAS VEGAS

The name Death Valley itself would be enough to convey a picture of a barren wasteland. In reality, Death Valley is perhaps one of the most beautiful Valleys in the world. Looking out from Zabriskie Point, you are surrounded by yet another of Death Valley's forbidding, almost unearthly, desert landscapes. These are badlands. Beneath the dark shadows of the Black Mountains, a great, extraordinarily flat expanse of shimmering white spreads out before you. You are at Bad Water, at -282 feet it is the lowest spot in the Western Hemisphere. Step onto the trail and you'll see that the white expanse is made up of billions of crystals of almost pure table salt! After leaving the park, head towards the largest casino city in the world Las Vegas. Once arriving there, you will have a choice of joining an optional tour, which would show you the best resorts and hotels that Las Vegas has to offer, or you can have the freedom of exploring the city on your own. Overnight stay in Las Vegas.
