    I'm delivering to Henderson, NV and was wondering what US93 was like from Kingman on north. I've never been on that road. Any nasty grades or things to be aware of?

    Long and boring,mostly flat,can be strong wind gust when crossing the new bridge over the Colorado river.

    U.S. 93 north of Kingman to Vegas is a good road. 4 lane all the way. And new bridge over the Hoover dam. You might encounter 2 lanes near Boulder City, Nv. They were suppose to widen it out, not sure if they have.

    Don't forget to stop at the last exit in AZ and shoot a machine gun!

    US 93 is a good road to travel by truck now that the new bridge is built and you dnt gotta take the detour anymore. It is def long and boring though.

    After you cross over the bypass bridge you'll be in boulder city. Watch the speed limit big time!

    Free hotel room once you cross into Nevada @ the Hacienda hotel and casino.. Only stipulations are that you need a cdl, sign up for rewards card and you have to park your truck there..
