Las Vegas area has a lot to see that is not on the strip. Red Rock Canyon is a great half or full day trip and it so easy to get to. There was four of us and the tour was $85 each so we decided to rent a car for $50 and drive the canyon ourselves. Big savings doing... More

The Red Rock Canyon is absolutely beautiful.

Whenever I go here, red rock never fails to amaze me. Te drive will take you around the national park with picturesque stops for you to hike, climb or take pictures. For the more adventurous they climb to the top (best to start early as it can get cold in the afternoon at the peak). The red rocks have very... More

Beautiful and wondrous place and definitely worth the trip. Be mindful that trails through the mountains take nature-constructed paths that can be quite challenging or impossible for less mobile people. Desert trails are not a problem.

Thoroughly enjoyed the drive (beautifully organised with one way traffic only) through the canyon and wonderful views of the topography. Would have enjoyed some of the walks had my friends been more mobile. Well worth the trip out from Las Vegas.
