add both destinations to your road trip planner and make it a week long road trip where you’ll experience two distinct types of FUN?
This particular road trip consists of 3 nights in Vegas, 1 day to drive the distance between Vegas and Anaheim (can be done in 4-5 hours), then 3 more nights in Anaheim. Of course, your road trip planner may have a different order; you might make it a triangular road trip, depending on your starting point; or fly to Vegas, rent a car and make it a round trip road trip. But no matter how you get from Point A to Point B, you’ll have a great time at both spots with some interesting scenery and experiences in between.
The first night there, put on your walking shoes & get some free entertainment. Catch the spectacular water visual of the Fountains at the Bellagio. Check out the entire valley from the Stratosphere Tower and then grab a taxi for the Fremont Street Experience.
The following night is for music! Make sure you add the Hard Rock Café to your road trip planner if you thrive in a rock environment. Top-notch blues, Louisiana style has its home at the House of Blues. And for those who like to hear bands jam – and get the occasional surprise musical legend come on state – hit the Legends Lounge for a fantastic evening.
Take in a show on the third night like Cirque du Soleil’s Love, which blends the magic of Cirque du Soleil with the revered songs of the Beatles, creating a phenomenal night of spectacle and awe. We recommend booking these tickets the same time that you’re doing your road trip planning because these tickets sell out months in advance.
And of course, in between all that, there’s gambling, pool side lounging, spa treatments, shopping, and art museums. There’s more than you can do in 3 days so consider this a teaser visit; there’s always flight deals to/from Vegas to have you coming back for more.
Leaving Las Vegas, your route on your road trip planner will show that you’ll be on the I-15 for over 230 miles. Bring plenty of water for the drive as you’re traveling through the desert. And best to have a gallon of water for your radiator as well. Add some interesting side trips to your road trip planner like the Mojave National Preserve, a 1.6 million acre park with canyons, mountains, mesas, abandoned mines, homesteads, military outposts…and wildflowers. Consider eating lunch at a restaurant in Barstow and stop at the California Route 66 Museum in Victorville.
