What is the best route from Florida to Las Vegas?
I just got a new job in Vegas and I’m moving out of Florida for the first time. I don’t have a lot of experience with road trips—what’s the best route and what do I need?
Answer provided by
Congratulations on the new job! You’ll need a map to follow the best route from Florida to Las Vegas because it takes a lot of highways to get there, plus 34 hours or more of driving time.
The major interstates you’ll take are:
- Interstate 10 will take you out of Florida.
- Interstate 20 will get you to Texas.
- Cut up US-287 N to get to Interstate 40.
- Take I-40 through New Mexico and Arizona on your way to US-93 N.
- Get on itty-bitty Interstate 11 and take it to I-515 into Vegas.
To make the trip more enjoyable, pack some road trip essentials like snacks, water, and games. You’ll also want to make sure your car insurance is up to snuff—cover all the basics with collision coverage and consider adding roadside assistance, just in case.
