Great place to get away from the hustle of the strip. Rent a car and head to Red Rock. You won't be dissapointed. Lots to see and short hikes to explore or just stay in your car. You can see a lot however you choose to experience it.

If you are in Vegas and want to get away from it but don't want the long trip to the grand canyon then this place is for you. It's about a 30 minute trip and we'll worth it. The views on the drive are amazing and world's part from the strip. On the way back we stopped in a town... More

We have been to Red Rock Canyon many times over the years. It will take you about 45 minutes to an hour to get to Red Rock Canyon from the Strip. It is a nice 45 minute drive through Red Rock Canyon, and you can stop and get out many times along the way. They have a center where you... More

While it is not quite as magnificent as Valley of Fire or certain parts of Death Valley, Red Rock Canyon is a lovely landscape and is very convenient to Las Vegas. Easy to visit in a half hay unless you want to do some of the hiking.

Such a nice day to spend out of the casinos. A short ride from the strip to a good place to shot the nature, hiking or have a pic-nic meal. You can Improve the experience doing the ride in a bicycle or by my favorite way: renting a Harley.

$7 per vehicle. Take the scenic drive and stop a few times to take a short hike. The scenery is nice, we saw mountain climbers scaling the heights. The rock looks like its almost painted a red and a cream. The air there is fresh, crisp, and sharp. You feel the different as soon as you get back to the... More
