Driving advice from las vegas-monterey

Jump to last reply

Can anyone help with directions/advice driving from Las vegas to Monterey?

Picking up rental car early on a Saturday in May from Vegas and want to drive by Hoover Dam. Than will drive on to Monterey. Was thinking about staying maybe south of Monterey near Cambria-San Simeon on Saturday night and than driving up the coast to enjoy the view on sunday morning and spend the day in Monterey.

I have no problems driving late at night but all this talk about the curvy coast has me worried if Im going to be driving it in the dark on Saturday night even if we stop south of Monterey.

Is the coast bad near cambria.san simeon? Would it be better to stop saturday night at a town like atascadero or paso robles and finish up the drive in the morning? Highway hotel would be fine, we only plan on being there for the night and getting an early start the next day. Or maybe even drive further up 101 or 5 towards Monterey and stay near the highway and than cut over in the morning.

Sorry if this is too long or complicated, just mulling over options. Thanks again.
