We concentrate on photos at our age. There were some prominent features with ample parking, for a weekday and the timed-tickets spacing out the crowd. I do wish there had been more turn-outs for one or two cars to take photos of the beauty surrounding us. To have to drive by without stopping was hard.

Not far from the strip. Easy to get to. Book online with the Conservation website to enter the park as they don't sell tickets at the gate.

A break from the serial world of Casinos, a ride into Red Rock canyon is worth it, although maybe a little expensive, just for a drive. However, a afternoon out and can loop your journey too.

This was our first trip to Red Rock. Recently we have been on a desert kick after visiting Joshua Tree National Park last year.

I read that if you are trying to decide between The Valley of Fire and Red Rock that you should choose Valley of Fire or at least visit Red Rock first. I would agree with that.

We set out for an early breakfast with coffee and headed to the park. I purchased our entrance ticket online prior to the trip and made a reservation. We took 4 teens (17-19yrs). They absolutely loved it. Two of them had never seen the desert before.

We thought it was cool and enjoyed the small gift shop/museum. There are even some small Joshua Trees at this park which is pretty nifty since you can't find them in very many places in the world.

We had an enjoyable morning at the park and spent the rest of the day exploring the outer city of Vegas and Chinatown. If you are into hiking you could easily spend the whole day there or maybe two. But if you just want to see it in a few hours the drive is only 13 miles and it is easily doable.

Our first trip out west. We were in Las Vegas for a business conference and rented a car to explore off strip. This was our favorite place! You can drive thru and park at each area and they were all amazing! Being from the east coast we truly loved this one! Only a nominal charge to explore. Highly recommend!

Ted Rock Canyon is not far outside of Las Vegas and is a good getaway. The scenic drive is scenic and there are many hiking trails available. The information center is nice and has bathrooms and a water refill station. Signs advised about possible tortoises, burros, and wild horses, but we never saw any wildlife. During busy times, a reservation must be made to enter this Conservation Area, but they can be made online. A later-in-the-day visit might be possible without a reservation, since the crowds tend to be earlier.

WOW! $20 per vehicle? And have to make reservations to drive the 11 miles through the canyon. The views are great but is it really worth it?

But beware of the tour companies. If they offer an exchange for a cheaper tour, cancel and ask for a refund. Once you see the refund, make a new payment for the new tour. They never refunded me the correct balance of over $100, but only $34 and insisted that was the difference even though I had sent them the proof and it is still on the Internet today. BEWARE

Did the scenic loop. While it was a beautiful space, I wish we had more time to climb around on the rocks. Unfortunately we had 2 babies with us, so best to come back without them to safely do so. We did a nice walk to a waterfall and just enjoyed the scenery.
Our Nat'l Parks Pass got us in for free, but we still had to pay the $2 fee.
