    Default San Fran to LA to Vegas and return to San Fran in 4 days

    Hi Guys,
    im sure this has been done by several of you however to add to the arguement!

    This year on thanksgiving we did the the San Fran to Vegas via LA trip.
    Rented out a Ford Escape. 2.0L approx 21mpg
    San Fran to Garden Grove, approx 6.5 hours on California 5 on 28th Nov.
    Stayed 1 night in Garden Grove, toured around Beverly Hills on the 29th and headed for Vegas at approx 9pm.
    3 hours from Garden Grove to Vegas, Stayed on the strip in the flamingo
    Covered Vegas pretty well in 2 days, even covered the reality TV venues e.g. Pawn stars shop, Counts Kustoms etc!
    Travelled back on the 1st.
    Vegas to San Luis Obispo and then back up the cost road (California 1), past seal beach, Hearst Castle etc
    14 hour return trip with usual food/gas stops
    Approx 1,600 miles round trip
    All in, approx $700 for the trip, $320 on Gas

    Allot of miles but easily done and highly recommended

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Thanks for sharing your report. I certainly hope you didn't actually travel from Garden Grove to Vegas in 3 hours - a trip that would require an average speed of 90 mph, and burst of speed of well beyond 100 - and I don't think I would recommend this kind of pace for most people, but we're glad you had a good time.

    Thanks for your reply Michael ... .your right, Garden gorve to Vegas in 3 hours would be very tough to achieve on that route, however if you travel at night time and maintain the steady flow of traffic without stopping it is very achievable in 3 hours 30 mins or so ....... if you are travelling in the day time be prepared for 4-7 hours

    Thanks
