Las Vegas to Los Angeles Route
A great trip to consider in the U.S. is between Nevada and California. Anchored by the popular destination cities of Las Vegas and Los Angeles, this four to five-hour drive is filled with things to see. Approximately 40 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15 is Primm, Nevada. What the town lacks in population, it makes up for in fun. With three hotel/casinos within town limits, there is no lack of action. Shoppers can enjoy the outlets at the Primm Valley Resort and Casino. Head over to Whiskey Pete’s and you may be able to see the infamous Bonnie and Clyde’s death car which is on display there from time to time. For family fun, Buffalo Bill’s is the place to be with both an actual and cyber roller-coaster adventure to enjoy.
Further south on Interstate 15 is the Mojave Nature Preserve. Science and nature enthusiasts can take several days exploring this 1.6 million acre desert area. Experience the abundant wildlife, springs, hiking trails and wildflowers throughout the preserve. Renting one of Sixt’s four-wheel drive vehicles will allow you access to many otherwise inaccessible areas. Short on time? Visit the Kelso Depot Visitor Center. See art exhibits and check out the bookstore for more information about the preserve.
Continue south and plan on a stop in Baker, California. The site of the world’s tallest thermometer, Baker is also a great place to stop for a bite to eat. The Mad Greek diner offers Greek specialties and many other meal choices. The strawberry milkshakes are famous and are almost a meal in themselves. If you are just looking for a snack, don’t miss Alien Fresh Jerky. This shop features an unusual assortment of jerky flavors, nuts, olives and hot sauces intermingled with alien-themed souvenirs.
Calico Ghost Town in Yermo, California is located approximately two hours northeast of Los Angeles. Mining demonstrations, train rides, and horseback riding are just a few of the things to see and do there. Storytelling on the Saturday night Ghost Tours is a real treat.
