    Default San Fran to LA to Las Vegas road trip in Feb 07

    G'day from Oz,

    I'm so glad I've finally found somewhere to get suggestions from others on travelling across the US. We're driving from San Fran to LA in 1 day, and I've started hearing that it's too much to do. There's no way you can sight see and do the drive???

    So any tips, suggestions from anyone would be fantastic. We've never been to the US before, let alone drive there, so any help would be superb!

    We're then going from LA to Vegas, and wondered again if anyone had some tips of things to do on the way, or what to do other than see Casino's when we get there. We're also doing trip in a Mustang convertible. Is it going to be too cold??

    Thanks

    Juz & Dave

    Default It is possible -- depends on the route!

    If you drive the coastal route and stop the requisite number of times to ooh and ah and take photos, it will take 10-12 hours to drive the distance. On the other hand you can drive US-101 (which is still a beautiful drive) in about eight hours and using Interstate 5 you can cut this to seven hours more or less. I have driven the route from LA to San Francisco scores of times in a day, but it is not a leisurely approach.
    So any tips, suggestions from anyone would be fantastic.
    Here is a thread with a bunch of west coast driving tips.

    RTA is based in Las Vegas and we lots of ideas of things to do here -- I would also strongly suggest you stop at the Mojave Preserve Visitor Center at Kelso and maybe even hike the dunes!

    Just put the top up and turn up the heater!
