You're looking at a good 8+ hour drive for this leg of your trip. Fast route is subjective, as a good deal of the drive will be on 2 lane highways with a 55MPH speed limit.

You have 2 options: I-15 from Vegas to Barstow where you connect with Highway 58 through Tehachapi and roll into Bakersfield. Or.... I-15 to Barstow, Highway 58 into Bakersfield, take Highway 99 north to Highway 46 west in Wasco, continue west to Paso Robles, connect with Highway 101 south to Highway 41 west, which rolls right into Morro Bay. Both routes are comparable in distance and time. Gold Prospecting Adventures - Jamestown, CA. Help with travel times - SD to Flagstaff. - San Diego Forum.

If you do take Interstate 8 to Arizona, there are several possible stops to break up the long drive and make it more fun for your kids. A must-see for the kids is Boulder Park and the Desert View Tower. After El Centro you will pass by a couple of off-roading areas similar to Glamis but smaller, and they are right next to Interstate 8. After that you get to Yuma, Arizona, which is next to the Colorado River (or what's left of it after most of the water was sucked out of it at points upstream).

Dateland, Arizona is a tiny stop between Yuma and Gila Bend. At Gila Bend, you get off Interstate 8 and take AZ 85 north to Buckeye, then Interstate 10 east to go to Phoenix, then Interstate 17 north to go on to Prescott and then over to Sedona.

Re: Las Vegas to Lake Tahoe US-395 - Hotels? Great suggestions - of all the places on highway 395 to Lake Tahoe, Mammoth has the best lodging. There is also Double Eagle Resort and Spa in June Lake Loop Note: On the drive on highway 395 - Lone Pine, Big Pine, Bishop - the nicest lodging you will find is your Best Westerns (there are some equivalent type properties in Bishop.).

The best bakery is in Bishop - Schats Other than that for these 3 towns, restaurants are pretty much your coffee shop - some have been there forever (or at least my life time) and have not changed.

In September last year I took a US road trip, starting in San Diego where I went to the Danger Zone, passing through LA where I met Jedward, went to the Playboy Mansion and saw Madonna’s bush, up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco where I fell in love.
