What’s the best route from Lake Tahoe to Las Vegas?

I want to go to Lake Tahoe on our next family vacation, but my husband wants to go to Las Vegas. We’ve discussed the possibility of compromising and spending a couple of days in both locations. What’s the best route to take between them?

That sounds like a good compromise! The best route from Lake Tahoe to Las Vegas follows US-50 E and US-95 Sand requires about seven hours of driving.
While this is certainly doable, especially if you trade off driving and have time to rest before moving on, it does require a fair amount of time in the car! To make the trip more fun, you might consider stopping at some other sights along the way, such as:
  • Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
  • Badwater Basin
  • Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes
It’s also a good idea to update your car insurance policy before you leave. Using the Jerr​​y app can help you find the best rates on the coverage you need for your big trip. That way, you’ll save money and keep your car protected.
