We are a family of four (youngest is 29 and eldest is 60) arriving in LA on a saturday at 6PM. We have to be in Las Vegas by noon sunday. I have booked a rental car at the LA airport for saturday evening arrival time itself.
I know this sounds a little crazy, but let me know if this is safe and feasible. Can we start driving for LAS Vegas right off the airport (at around 8PM maybe), and get out of the city for about an hour or two and then stay in a hotel, on the way to Las Vegas.
Having heard all about the safety issues in LA, i want to know if the above is a good plan or is it better only to leave early in the morning and make one continuous drive. Also I can use recommendation for hotels (budget about US$ 100-110 for all 4) and route (especially from LAX airport to I15).
