Driving PS - LV - PS in 24hours

Hello,

Looking for recommendations on the quickest route from PS to Vegas and back to PS out on 28th August and back on 29th August. Need to pop in to Vegas to get married and back to PS to continue our holidays. I read it's 4 hours each way?

Many thanks

Its four hours each way ,whether you take the longer in mileage interstate route(speeds are higher, time is the same) or the scenic route via 29 Palms, Amboy and Route 66 and thru the Mojave Preserve.Map of both...

Sounds like a strange plan to me!

Why not just fly into Las Vegas to begin with.

Thank you Dez, I thought so

Because of jet lag we will be up really early so will be on the road by 5am on the way in.

I am thinking to take the scenic route at least for the outbound.

Thanks again

You could certainly fly to Vegas from London! Your round trip 4hrs each way in 24 hrs to get married sounds to me like a terrible way to start out.

Of course it sounds like you are aiming to do it anyway sooo........

Thank you Riff,

We have commitments in PS the week prior so flying to LAS from London will not work...

On the other hand 4 hour driving isn't much different from some of my business trips... was just looking for any local knowledge for a quicker route.

Thanks!

You can fly from PSP to Vegas, its just incredibly expensive for such a short hop.

...not direct unfortunately :( the quickest way is over 5.30hrs

it's not worth the money using corporate aviation either.

We will drive, not a big deal after all.

Thanks a lot!

This is a bad idea due to the lack of direct routes. The route over I-15 is not as dangerous as it used to be, since the state is trying to reduce the high fatality rate (the highest of any highway in the United States in the early 2000s) but it’s still horribly boring, tedious, and sometimes congested. Please read up on how to safely drive in the desert and carry adequate supplies.

I hope this is a return visit to Las Vegas for both of you. Otherwise it’s nuts—you really need to stay at least two nights there to see something of Las Vegas.
