  1. Default Las Vegas to Seattle

    We are thinking about driving from Las Vegas to Seattle. What would the best route be? How much time should we allow for travel? We are also traveling with 2 children ages 6 adn 10.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The "Best Route" is never a generic one sized fits all thing. What are you looking for? Fastest? Most Scenic? All freeways? No Freeways?

    The shortest, and likely fastest route would be to go up US-93 along the eastern edge of Nevada, and then take I84/I82 from Twin Falls ID to Seattle. This is, however, a very remote part of the country and you will have limited options for services. If you want to stick to the Interstates, you'd take I-15 to I-84 at Salt Lake.

    In either case, you need a bare minimum of 2 full days, with the halfway point being Twin Falls no matter which way you go. However, with 2 young kids, I'd think about adding a second overnight stop.
