LAX airport or San Diego Airport

We are staying in Dana Point, but my husband and I want to take a quick trip to Vegas. Which airport would be easier to get in and out of as far as traffic is concerned? We would be leaving out midday and midweek. Thank you for any responses back.

The closest airport to Dana Point at 27 miles is John Wayne (SNA). Long Beach (LGB) is next at 43 miles. San Diego (SAN) and LAX are both 66 miles away, but traffic to LAX is likely to be heaver, although there is a carpool lane all the way to LAX for 2 or more per vehicle.

Southwest Airlines flies out of SNA and they are having $49 flights these days. Check it out on their web site.
