Driving is your best option in my opinion

San Francisco to LA is 425 miles 8 or 9 hours drive on the interstate, a two day drive if you wish to drive the much more scenic slower route 1 down the coast via Big Sur.

LA to Las Vegas is 290 miles and about 5 or 6 hours drive.

Hi Viktorj
I am doing SF to LA about 23rd October.
I would love to do the scenic option, possibly along the coast but travelling on my own I've had to rule that out.
I have found a shuttle bus that leaves from almost the front door of the hostel I'm staying at to the same type hostel in Hollywood for only about $42 USD. I'm am pre paying this with my travel agent in Austrlia though I have seen it online somewhere...???. I'm sure you can do it LA-SF.
