It’ll take you about 10 hours to drive from Boise to Las Vegas, depending on how often you stop. It’s a good idea to use your preferred navigation app while driving in order to avoid unexpected traffic jams and road closures, but here’s the route we suggest:
  • Take I-84 to exit 173 toward US-93 S
  • Drive on US-93 S until you see the ramp to I-15S
  • Continue on I-15 S, then merge onto I-515 S/US-93 S/US-95 S toward Phoenix
  • Take exit 75A for Las Vegas Blvd.
You’ll probably need to fill your gas tank at least once during this 640-mile drive, but be sure to stop before you reach Ely, Nevada—gas stations are scarce for about 100 miles between Ely and Alamo. It’s also smart to avoid common road trip mistakes like forgetting to pack snacks or bottled water. You should make sure your car’s maintenance is up-to-date and that your car insurance policy includes useful travel coverage like roadside assistance.
