It depends on the route you take, but here's one example:

Thanks, is there no route that will get us to Las Vegas as well? Also, since we dont have American driver's license, we have to use public transport, is that possible? Which route has more tourist attraction for us to enjoy?

If you want to go through Las Vegas, I would probably follow this route:

Basically, switch to I-70 and go through Denver and down through Vegas to LA, then do the final leg from LA to SF.

However, if you're not driving, this whole trip could be more complicated. The U.S. is a big place, and a cross-country trip takes quite a while. If you're visiting from another country, what many people do is actually fly into the East Coast first, see New York and maybe other sites like Boston or Washington, DC. Then take a 5-6 hour flight from NYC to LAX and explore the West Coast, doing a side trip to Vegas and seeing LA and SF. Without a rental car, it's going to be a lot harder to visit a lot of cities. There isn't as much public transportation in the U.S. like there is in Europe and other places. It's technically doable, but most people tend to do flights, even for a shorter distance from LA to SF.

Thank you so much
