The Mojave Desert is home to some of the most interesting places in California...

Less than one hour from the Las Vegas Strip sit the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Valley of Fire State Park.
Also, just 20 minutes from the Strip is Seven Magic Mountains - a cool and colorful art installation.
These Nevada stops are all accessible in roughly ten hours of driving from LA.
Drive South of the Border to Mexico's wine region, Valle de Guadalupe.

A road trip with stops in Phoenix, Sedona and Flagstaff will offer LOTS of interesting sights, like Montezuma's Castle, pictured here.
Sedona itself is such an interesting and artsy community, with tall red cliffs and pine forests instead of cacti.
This entire road trip spans 15 hours, which can easily be split up across your Spring Break week.
Last but not least, a Spring Break in Palm Springs is a classic for a reason.
