The best driving route from Sacramento to Phoenix is via I-5 S and I-10 E. The drive will take you about 13 hours in total, so you’ll probably want to stop for the night at least once along the way.
One of the best places to stop along the way is Los Angeles. Driving from Sacramento to LA will take you about six-and-a-half hours, so it’s a great halfway point to spend the night and explore a bit before continuing to Phoenix. This will allow you to bring your car with you without driving for 13 hours straight!
If you do decide to drive to Phoenix, it’s important that you have a good car insurance policy in place to protect you along the way. With the Jerr​​y app, you can see a list of policy quotes that work for you in minutes. The average user saves over $800 per year!
