Best way to go to las vegas from san diego

We are travelling down from San Francisco to San Diego with stops en route. We plan to stay in San Diego for 5/6 nights and are now considering adding Las Vegas to our trip. Though flying is suggested we are having trouble in the UK getting onto the Southwest Airline site to book. We thought that it might be easier as we have large cases that we go by bus and more reliable and thougt the scenery will not be very exciting we could then travel by bus from Las Vegas to Los Angeles if we can arrive in a safe area stay overnight before heading to the airport for our overnight stay before going to UK, Any suggestions or comments appreciated. We will be doing this part of our journey in early October. Thank you

Fly.

There are other airlines besides SouthWest that do those routes.

Definitely fly.

What's the trouble you're having accessing www.southwest.com ? I haven't read of anyone having issues, but as said, if that doesn't work I'd try JetBlue or someone else. I'd prefer Southwest because they're cheap, easy to deal with, and 2 checked bags fly free, but there are tons of airlines and flights on those routes.

Here is a new service, Flix Bus, that does go between LV and SD, but only on weekends:

If you already have a car, keep it and drive to Las Vegas and back. Much easier for you.

Just drive from San Diego to Las Vegas. It's 332 miles (532 km) with a nominal driving time of 5 hours plus time at stops for gas or food. The route is simple: Interstate 15 the whole way. But don't do that drive on a Friday, and don't do the drive back from Las Vegas to southern California on a Sunday. In either case you would run into horrendous weekend traffic on Interstate 15. Do the drives on other days.
