    Such an amazing area, with so much to see. Given the chance, I'd return to Vegas and pretty much ignore the city just to come out here day after day and explore.

    Well worth a visit-----and a nice break from the strip----------all sorts of cactus and well labeled-----------several hiking trails--located only a few miles from the strip--------also has a butterfly house with live butterflies all around you--but sunlight and temperatures make a difference on their activity level

    We loved stopping by the flamingo exhibit while walking up and down the strip. It was our only reason to go through the Flamingo and we’re glad we did. You’ll only need 10-20 minutes to walk through and around the habitat area.

    The visitor center staff were very friendly and helpful. It is free to get in but donations are welcome. There were informational movies and exhibits. There is also a small gift store. The walking trails around the center were very well maintained. There is a little pond that has crawfish living in it. I wish we had more time and a 4 wheel drive to explore the backcountry areas. We may come back with our 4 wheel van and see that next time. We spent about an hour there and did enjoy it. It was cool fall weather and so was extra nice. I would think it would be very hot in the summer. We did not see any bighorn near the visitor center but you probably would if you drove back in on the dirt roads.

    My mom, my siblings and I were looking around for a reasonable place to see animals and stuff and we came across this beautiful place on the internet and it looked really cool , especially from reading all the reviews. As soon as we walked in the sanctuary it was nothing but absolutely amazing. The kids had a wonderful time. And they of course enjoyed the animals. There was seven of us kids from the ages of 3 months old to 21 yrs old, including my mom definitely enjoyed ourselves. And the weather was perfect and There's picnic areas where you can take your food in and just have the chickens running around you. Just absolutely amazing !!! HIGHLY RECCOMEDED

    It was a beautiful hike, our guide Julio pointed out great sights and took us to some amazing views where you could see the whole city. The hike was not too easy and not too hard, it was perfect!

    this is one of the point in the scenic drive, the first point is Calico I, the second point is Calico II, there are parking lots in both points, you can view the red rock at these 2 points, I post some photos here for you to take a look, so you have an idea what you will see in these points
