Two of our favorite excursions we have done when we were in Las Vegas was to get out of the city to visit some of the area’s extraordinary parks. Red Rock Canyon is about 15 minutes from Vegas and you can drive, hike and rock climb in the canyon. They have a great visitor’s center where you can learn all about the park and area.

We just did the driving tour, but would highly recommend a hike for those that like to experience nature. Just be sure and have appropriate hiking gear, plenty of water and snacks.
