  1. Default San Diego to Vegas

    Hey,

    We'll be traveling from San Diego to Vegas on a Friday in August. Anyone have any idea how long this will take (in hours)? I've heard it can take ages on Fridays and I assume the roads will be quite busy in August!!

    Default Busy Times

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Friday will be a busy day to travel up the I-15. I'd say you'd probably be looking at about a 6-7 hour trip on an average Friday, but it could be longer if there happens to be a crash or something else that slows down traffic even more.

    I'll also add, that if you leave early on Friday, you're less likely to have problems then if you try to leave in the afternoon.

    Thanks Michael!

    One more question if ya don't mind!! Would we be right in looking at roughly 9 hrs from LA to San Fran?

    Cheers!

    Oh yeah - which route would you recommend on the San Diego to Vegas journey? Any detours off the I-15 that could save us some time?

    Thanks again!

    That is about right if you use I-5 and don't too much Bay Area traffic enroute.

    There are plenty of detours for scenic drives, but there is no faster route than directly up I-15!
