There's better only 30 minutes more away
Nov 2021
Overrated. Pretty and close by city but if you have time drive the hour north of city to the state park in Overton,NV. The Valley of the Fire is so colorful and much more beautiful than Red Rock Canyon. Its worth it. It was a downer after going there and then to Red Rock. Night and day.

Great day trip from Vegas! Need reservations.

Great day trip from Vegas! My kids had a great time hiking, getting close to the sandstone, and seeing the petroglyphs. With required reservations, each location was not too crowded.

Scenic Loop Spectacular !!!
Nov 2021
Driving from Vegas to Sanit George, check out the Red Rock Canyon and the scenic drive. Its a nice road that traverses through the mountains and gorges and allows you to see the pretty red colors of the rock mountains.

Nice getaway from the city
Nov 2021
This place is gorgeous, and you can either cruise through on the scenic drive or spend a great deal of time in the park hiking, rock climbing, etc.

Lots of hiking options -- ranging from relatively easy to fairly hard, with rock hopping.

The scenic drive is a twisty, turny 13- mile cruise (max. speed 35 MPH) , on which lots of scooters, bikes and cars go. Lots of scenic pulloffs, most with solid bathroom facilities.

Great welcome center, with vending machines and a gift shop.

Easy drive from Las Vegas, too!

What an incredible experience to be able to see the beauty of nature and the colors within the rock! We even got to watch some rock climbers (brave souls)

Must see and do if in Las Vegas
Nov 2021
It is a short drive from Las Vegas, maybe 30 minutes. Get your timed tickets and get your tickets for an early entrance because it backs up at the gate. I had a Military Pass so it was free. Stunning views, lots of hiking opportunities and lots of just relaxing with nature. Parking lots can get full. Pictures do not do it justice.

There are great hikes along the entire route. Check the map from the Visitors' Center so you can pick the right level for your group.

Finding Peace in Las Vegas by Darren Chaker
Oct 2021
Just a 15 minute drive from the strip is a stunning place to visit and will leave you wishing you never left. Red Rock canyon is the icing on the red rock cake. The park is gorgeous and parking is plentiful. You feel like you are not in Las Vegas at all it is so quiet. The closest casino/resort is named Red Rock Casino & Resort and is only a 5 minute drive to the main entrance of the park. It gets a little crowded on Friday and Saturdays. Happy travels, Darren Chaker

Great daytime activity near Vegas
Nov 2021
This is a good family activity and a short drive from Las Vegas for anyone wanting a little nature. You can take a one way 13 mile drive through or stop and hike the 26 trails. Reservations are required at certain times of the year so it's best to go to the web site for more information.
If you have more time, check out Sedona, AZ or the South rim of the Grand Canyon - both are about 4.5 hour drives from Las Vegas but worth every minute of the trip. The Grand Canyon West rim is about 2.5 hour drive but has fewer view points and amenities.
