We invested in a helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon from Vegas and were not disappointed in any way. As one would imagine, the scenery is spectacular and the views en route equally so, taking in a view of the Hoover dam and lake from above. We were concerned that as a consequence of our chosen package we... More

A short 1/2 hour drive from Las Vegas transports us from the hoopla of Las Vegas to breathtaking natural beauty. We have the national park pass, so our entry was free. But even at $10 entry fee, this is a bargain. The visitor's center is very informative. Paths & trails are clearly marked as are the vista points. Roads are... More

Easy access from Las Vegas residential area or strip. We climb up butte with our dogs and feel nice fresh air. For bikers this is great place to ride around. In summer it will super hot so recommend visiting here from early fall to early spring.

I was impressed by the visitor center that has been opened there. There are many exhibits that provides information about the areas geology and the wildlife. The exhibits are geared for all ages. Recommend that you go early in the morning if you are visiting in the summer, take plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat.

We stopped and did the drive-thru tour after our early morning arrival and before trying to check-in to the hotel. We did not hike, but just drove through the 13-mile one-way road. The scenery was beautiful and very unusual. We stopped periodically and took photos of the rock formations. We saw one person rock climbing and wished our kids had... More

I was somewhat disappointed. The name and picture is deceiving. If you want to see red rock as in the picture then go see Valley of Fire. This is a short drive from the Vegas Strip but I didn't think there was a whole lot to it. The Red Rock area is not very big. There are mountains around that... More

I would have thought due to the high temperature reaching 40 degrees Celsius in mid July that we would be the only one following the scenic route the park gave to us to follow yet we were surprised to discover more people popping into our pictures at each stop. We would have liked to do a bit of trekking, yet... More
