A short drive from Las Vegas is a great Conservation Area called Red Rock. Well marked trails and great views. Get some sun and exercise outside of the city!

If you come to Vegas don't miss this. Absolutely beautiful. It was well worth the $15.00 to get in and the views were unbelievable. It was like being on another planet. Living in New England we have out mountains and rolling hills but Red Rock...More

After a disappointing 4 hour drive to a frozen, snowy Grand Canyon, we decided to drive up to see this area closer to LV. We were not disappointed. The visitors’ center set the stage with a great background on the canyon and its heritage. We...More

I would suggest going by one of the touring buses. They make all the main stops and stress free and you get to meet people along with all the historic information that most people miss

Not technically, but if you park outside and walk in, there's not much to stop you. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night though, that's dangerous. I might suggest visiting Calico Basin, it's essentially the front of... More
