  1. Default San Francisco to Las Vegas

    Hi everyone,

    my fiance and I are travelling to Las Vegas on 5th August for 2 weeks. We have a week booked in Vegas and then plan to fly to SF.

    We would like some help with the following:

    how many days are needed in SF for sightseeing and shopping?
    would it then be possible to drive from SF back to Vegas in 3/4 days?
    If so, which route would you recommend? Big Sur and coast or via Yosemite?

    This will be our first taste of California so we would really appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks!

    It will be warm (hot) in Las Vegas in August -- but there is plenty to see here. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!

    I could spend a month or two there -- but you can get a good sense of the place in a couple of days.

    By the fastest route, it is about a ten hour trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas.
    If so, which route would you recommend? Big Sur and coast or via Yosemite?
    Here are several routes and suggestions for such a trip. Read them all and then let us know if you have any specific questions.

    Default SF Days

    Hi,

    If you are interested in a day in the wine country, north of San Fancisco, you'll need at least two additional days to enjoy much of what San Francisco has to offer.

    As for which route, all depends on what you want to see. They are both wonderful, and you can do some of each if you drive to Yosemite (spend a full day or even two in the park), then cut over to the coast at either Paso Robles or Monterey, depending on how much time you have and how much coast you want to see (the really dramatic part is from Paso Robles to Monterey.)

    Have fun,
