US 95 is longer but more reliable than trying to go over Hoover dam (US 93). The Hoover dam route is shorter but a little challenging with the switchbacks, etc and if if you get stuck with a security guy having a bad day you can be there a long time. I've been both ways and while 93 has much more scenery it can be a nightmare if you hit it at the wrong time. Sometime it takes 5 minutes to clear the security and sometimes an hour or more, especially if there is a lot of traffic. A real crap shoot.

I took 95. I must look like a Bad Guy.. We were stopped entering California on I 40 like all people were. We then had the person check under our coach. Took about 15 min for the check. He asked what kind of produce we had and let us go. I 95 was a longer but nice drive.

We just did US 93 (Boulder Dam highway) yesterday. Can't recommend it. We waited 10 minutes in one - - and 20 minutes in another "one way" construction area before it was our time to go. The homeland security check wasn't bad but did open every door...... The actual dam crossing was like a 3 ring circus!! Hundreds if not thousands of people walking on the roadway. There is even a souviner/food concession not to mention construction of the new bridge!
