Thread: LA to Detroit?

  1. Default LA to Detroit?

    We are planning a Road trip from LA to Detroit. We are trying to make it in 2-3 days. Any suggestions on the best routes? How to avoid traffic? What to see on the way back (Las Vegas, Denver, etc.)? Thank you!

    Default Seeing Nothing

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    LA to Detroit is a 2300 mile trip, and even covering that distance in 3 days would be more than we'd recommend. You'll need to be on the road for about 13.5 hours a day to make this trip on this timeline, which is very much a speed run and beyond the distances that professional drivers are allowed to travel. I wouldn't even consider attempting this journey in 2 days.

    As far as a route goes, I would recommend taking I-15 to I-80 to I-94. There are the fewest major cities on this route, so you'd have the smallest chance of running into traffic issues that could slow you down.
