An estimate of travel time between S.F. and DL!

We would leave Fisherman's Wharf (SF) at 11:00AM and travel on Interstate 5 the whole way to Anaheim. How long should it take us?

It depends a bit upon whether you plan to take 580 to get to the 5 or take 101 down to the Pachecho Pass. In general I find going down to take the Pachecho Pass faster than crossing the bridge and traveling through the valley in the East Bay. Additionally, if there is traffic on the 101 you could take the 280 which has less traffic until you reach San Jose then merge onto 101 until Pachecho Pass. If you do take the Pacheco Pass route, it will take about 6 1/2 hours. If you stop for lunch or a rest about 7 hours. If you're going on a weekday you will likely hit traffic in LA. If you could leave a bit earlier you could save yourself that. Traffic can add up to another 2 hours onto your trip.

6 1/2 is about right - we did about 5 1/2 from San Jose last week. But be warned traffic can make a difference. The traffic going down to SJ is ok until about 4 so ok that way - but if leaving at 11 I think you will hit traffic in LA, which will definitely add time & headaches. Also some times Pacheco Pass can back up if any accidents as a small section is only 2 lanes not freeway. Also be aware I5 is in the middle of the central vally - no cities - so don't run the gas tank empty (or stomach) till you get in LA area. They do have some gas station/ff "spots" but is limited. Eat lunch before you get off 101 if taking this way. Was just on this last Saturday again and it always surprises me compared to what I am used to in MidWest and out East. But you get to see all types of farms growing things so nice drive.

If you are traveling down the 101, allow yourself about 7-8 hours. If you take the I-5 south, allow about 7 hours or so. Be aware, that the speed limit on these freeways is 65 mph and the California Highway Patrol enforces the speed limits when you enter major cities along your route.

Just FYI, we ended up deciding to fly from LAX to SFO. Cost was $118 for DH and me one-way. Not sure what your plans are, but we figured that price was well worth the gas and time savings!
