Hello Everyone,
We are new and planning a trip from Orlando to Las Vegas. I have two questions: 1. What is the best route to take? 2. How many hours per day is a good driving time.


Thank You

Are you trying to get there ASAP? Are you looking for shorted route or do you have some time to take in some sights?

How much time do you have for the return trip? That will determine what we can offer for sights on the return trip. I would recommend I-10 to Blythe, CA then 95 to Las Vegas.

Hours per day is a personal decision based on your abilities and desires. Sightseeing on the way back is also a personal decision. Something that interests me might be totally boring to you. Maybe if you posted your interests folks might be able to point you to relevant sights.

We have one week to get to Las Vegas and 2-3 weeks for the return trip. While in vegas we are going to see Grand Canyon, Hovers Dam, so we like to see those sort of things.

GKU-I'm right by you (Debary) and we made that trip a couple years ago. We didn't take the RV on that trip but we went I10 Just as DaveG39 mentioned.

We stopped at the following:
Carlsbad Caverns
Sedona
Grand Canyon
Vegas
Monument Valley
Moab Utah
Denver
St Louis (BBQ)
Kansas City (BBQ)
Elvis' house
Gatlinburg

The only difference, we did that in a week.

That is a lot of distance in one week Jeepw99. We are driving the RV pulling our jeep toad.Thanks for the places to see.
When I did a driving direction from Good Sam and MapQuest here is the way I was routed. I-10 to Mobile, AL, then 84 to Jackson, MS, I-20 to I-30 around Dallas then 287 to Amarillo to I-40 through Albuquerque then 93 to Vegas. Not sure why they are routing me this way any ideas.

GKU- we did many miles per day when we went but we had some friends that went with us that only had a week of vacation.

We have family in California and we have also drove the way you mention. I think the way you have might be shorter distance but you end up going through more city driving instead of interstate speed. Also, depending when you are going, that route will take you in higher elevations and might have weather concerns.

If you have not driven through west Texas on I10, there isn't much out there.
