Seattle to Las Vegas

I'm planning a trip from Seattle to Las Vegas, and was wondering if anyone has a favorite route. We don't want to worry about finding fuel or good places to stay overnight. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

We usually travel from Vegas to Blaine (Birch Bay) WA in the summer months and use the same route back to Vegas.

We take I-90 east from Seattle then I-82 south at Ellensburg then I-84 through Oregon to Twin Falls Idaho where we pick up US 93 into Ely, NV, Then US 6 south to the junction of NV State Route 318 south where it connects again to US 93 and continue on US 93 south connecting with I-15 into Vegas.

Checked the route on the Google map and it shows a distance of 1,130 miles..

here's a link to the Google travel directions:

Good luck and have a fun, safe and trouble free trip to Vegas,

P.S. bring money, our economy is hurting...

I agree. This is our preferred way to travel to Las Vegas from Seattle. There a lots of opportunities to overnight depending on when you leave Seattle and how far you want to travel in a day. Don't miss the turn in Ely (US 6) as it is a great shortcut rather than staying on 93 all the way.
