  • Going back to LA (But it's Vegas!!)


    In feb I am travelling back to LA with my mum, sis, friend any my family to celebrate a number of significant birthdays!!!

    Trouble is, and although I've always wanted to go to Vegas, it's Vegas!!!

    I have an Annual pass that I could use (we are only in LA four days!!)

    What can I do?
    How long is the coach trip Vegas/LA?
    How much?
    As above for flights?
    I really think I should use my pass but with only 4 days, is it worth the travel?

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Could I swing a day in Anaheim? or is the travel too much??

    It's about a 6 hour drive from Vegas to LA or an hour on a plane.

      the plane is about 30 minutes, but the hassle to get through the airpoet is not worth it...IMO. Before 9/11 we used to fly there every 3 months, but with the airports being how they are now it's quicker for us to drive, When we drive it's about 4 1/2 to 5 hours, but they are tearing up the main freeway now. They had all these updates on the news a while ago and the anchor ended with, "so don't bother driving it...." I have no idea how bad it really is though.

        Friends for life

          If traffic's not bad, I can make it from my door (in Henderson, just outside Las Vegas) to the Mickey & Friends parking structure in 3 1/2 hours.

          Driving or flying, absolutely you need to make a trip to Vegas. :thumbup:

            But how long will you have? If you're only in L.A. for 4 days... it's have to be a quick trip in and out. Would you do it an day or what? If you only have a day, fly ot really early and back really late - don't waste hours driving.

            I'm not sure what you mean about swining a day in Anaheim... From LA to Anaheim isn't that far, like 45 to a hour, depending. You could do that.
            Good morning, son
            In twenty years from now
            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
            And I can tell you 'bout today
            And how I picked you up and everything changed
            It was pain
            Sunny days and rain
            I knew you'd feel the same things...
