  1. Default Road Trip- LA to Salton Sea/Salvation Mountain then to Las Vegas

    Hi guys,

    I am currently planning a short road trip from LA to Salton Sea/Salvation Mountain and then onto Las Vegas around the beginning of December this year.

    I am from Australia and unfamiliar of the roads and gas prices in the US. Would it take longer than a day? Is salton sea and salvation mountain worth the visit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    That would be a long day on the road, possibly 12 hours and you would be better off getting out of LA as early as possible to avoid as much of the morning rush as you can. Other alternatives that would take less time and be rewarding would be to either head through Palm Springs and Indio and up through Joshua tree NP and the Mojave preserve or head further North and drive across the incredible landscape of Death valley.

    To find out what current gas prices are now and check again closer to departing take a look at The Gas Buddy site.

    You will find Lot's of info digging around the site, but if you have more questions just ask away !
