  1. Default How long from San Fran to Phoenix?

    I'm going to be leaving SF around 3:30 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon and need to get to Phoenix by noon the next day. Anyone know a fairly accurate estimate of how long this trip would take? I've mapquested it, googled it, etc. and come up with about 11 hours, but I know there will be traffic. A friend suggested this trip would take about 16 hours. Is that right?

    Sorry, it is unlikely that you can not make it in this time frame. If you really need to be be there by noon -- you should fly.
    but I know there will be traffic. A friend suggested this trip would take about 16 hours.
    There will be traffic and slow downs -- If you never stopped for fuel, food or rest, and had two professional drivers, you could probably cover this distance (even with traffic delays) in about 11 hours - but a solo driver can not cover this distance that fast unless you are prepared to drive in excess of 100 mph every so often.
