What’s the best route to Phoenix from Sacramento?
If I’m driving from Sacramento to Phoenix, should I go through L.A. or Vegas? Which is the fastest route?
Answer provided by
The fastest route between Sacramento and Phoenix will go through Los Angeles, via the I-5 S and the I-10 E. it will take between 11 and 12 hours in total driving time, depending on traffic.
Here are the basic directions:
- Get on I-5 S
- Then, take the I-210 E to the CA-210
- Get off at the I-10 E
- Take exit 145, towards N. 7th St. Drive in Phoenix
If you’d like to avoid L.A. traffic, you can go around the city via CA-99 S. However, you won’t need to go as far east as Las Vegas—unless you’re specifically interested in visiting Sin City, it’s actually a bit out of your way.
