We went on the 13 miles drive through Red Rock Canyon and it was well worth it. Several places allow for you to get out and take a walk to really experience the beauty of the canyon.

We hired harley davidsons and took a day trip out through red rock canyon and found this little old gold mining wild west town which was so much fun. The scenery is amazing and its well worth a visit.

The drive through Red Rock is very picturesque. If I come back to Vegas with my kids, this would be something we would definitely do as a family.

Red Rock is absolutely breathtaking. I've been multiple times, either out exploring with friends or driving through with family, and it's always a blast. If you're staying in Vegas, the best option is to rent a car for the day and check out Red Rock...More

I have 7 days to travel from Las Vegas to LA to San Diego and back. I'm trying to decide if this is a must see within that time frame. I will be flying into Vegas this June 25 and flying out July 2nd. I know it's about 4 hours to LA and I'm wondering if I can fit a tour of Red Rock or the Grand Canyon in on the way to or from SAn Diego. Any advise or input would help. Thanks
