Planning Your Viva Las Vegas Road Trip

Who hasn’t thought of visiting Las Vegas at least once? Now, with the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend coming up on April 19th-April 22nd, you have the excuse to pack up RV rentals with friends and head on out to the “city of sin.”

It’s the festival of the year for Rock N’ Roll fans who want to enjoy both the pleasures of Las Vegas and their favorite music. If you fall into this category, a road trip to Las Vegas should be in your plans.

Speaking of plans, just jumping in your car and driving aimlessly may not be the best plan. Instead of heading blind into the unknown, you may want to prepare. The more preparation you put into the road trip, the more likely you are to have an incredible time.

To help you out, the following tips will give you an idea of what to think about and plan before heading on over to Viva Las Vegas in April:

  • What kind of transportation will take you there? Would you like to take a plane, a train, or an automobile to Las Vegas? Or, how about checking out local RV rentals? An RV can provide you with the freedom to stay where you want to and makes traveling a comfortable experience. If you’re traveling with your rock n’ roll buddies, it’s a great way to have a good time on your way to the festival.
  • How much are you willing to spend? Before you set out and you sit down to plan, consider your budget. How much are you willing to spend on this trip? If you’re traveling with a couple of friends, you can split the cost of an RV rental and fuel. This will help to make it a budget-friendly experience. Also, if you’re willing to cut back on some frills included in some motorhomes, you can save a few extra bucks by doing so.
  • What do you need to pack? What you will pack largely depends on your plan. First of all, you will want to pack some clothes for your days at the festival. Go ahead and add in some extras, since RVs have storage room. Next, if you plan on doing outdoors activities along the way, include some gear. Don’t forget to bring plenty of extra food and water.
  • When is a good time to drive? Consider the route you’re taking and when will be good times to drive. For example, if you plan on stopping in a certain city, consider the timing of rush hour so that you can be sure to avoid it.
  • Determine how long it should take you. You don’t want to plan the timing to be too short. Unexpected things can come up, such as accidents on the highway or adverse weather conditions. All of these factors can cause delays. Because you don’t want to miss out on your Viva Las Vegas festival, make sure to give yourself some extra travel time to ensure that you make it on time to your destination.
  • Make sure you have a trustworthy GPS app. A wrong turn can set you behind for hours, so to avoid this happening, make sure that you have a dependable GPS app on your phone. If you’re old school, then pack a GPS device to ensure that you make it without any trouble.
  • Consider visiting other places on the way to Vegas. No matter where you’re arriving to Las Vegas from, there is bound to be some amazing sights along the way. If you happen to know of a few national parks you’ve been wanting to see that are on the route, you may want to consider allotting time to visit them. After all, it’s not every day that you have an RV to road trip in. Make the most out of the experience and see everything that you’ve been wanting to see.
  • Make sure your rental is up to par. To avoid break downs and other issues on the road, check the rental before taking off in it. You don’t want to miss out on a festival due to problems on the road and the best way to avoid this is to make sure that you’re renting a quality vehicle.


Any road trip with friends is a fun experience. Now, add the idea of a road trip to the destination of Las Vegas and you have yourself a dream come true. Just make sure to plan well. Well-planned road trips are typically the more successful ones. While you do want to give yourself some extra time and room for new experiences, make sure to leave prepared.
