This state park is a bit of a journey away from the Vegas strip, but you'll be glad you made the trip. This also is a good adventure for families.

Heading an hour outside of Las Vegas to go to the Valley of Fire state park might seem like a lot of effort but it's worth it. I've traveled around the southwest a lot, so seeing beautiful red rock formations is nothing new to me but I must say, Valley of Fire wowed me at almost every turn. The drive... More

This place is incredible. So beautiful. There is so much to see that we had to pick and choose what to see because of time. None of the hikes we took were very hard at all. We plan on going back to see the rest. Make sure you have your camera plenty of water and sun screen. There is a... More

We spent an afternoon at this park and were disappointed that we did not spend more time here. Two to three hours was not enough. You could easily spend a couple days exploring. The park is spread out, so you need to drive to the various areas of interest. Gorgeous red rock formations and a hiker’s paradise. The Mouse’s Tank... More

Words cannot explain the beauty of this place. It's just magnificent. Great change of pace from the strip and worth the easy 1h car ride. If you're going to Vegas, get in your car and explore this amazing park. You won't regret it...

We decided to take a day trip tothis National park rather than go to Grand Canyon due to the prices charged to got to Grand Canyon. This park is only an hour drive North East from Vegas and it is stunning. There are so many things to look at as well as numerous hiking tracks so you could easily spend... More

My husband made a road trip out to here to get away from the Las Vegas strip for the day. We had hired a convertible mustang and wanted a bit of fun and didn't really have the time to visit the Grand Canyon properly. We went thinking it would be a few rocks......well we were both in absolute awe when... More

Last weekend, My husband and I went to the Valley of Fire (VOF) with our parents- we had a few hours to kill before our midnight flight from Vegas to DC, we had already seen the casinos and the grand canyon, so we were suggested this place by our hotel staff. It was surprisingly beautiful. The weather was sunny and... More

Well worth the 45 min ride to see what has attracted us there as people..visually stunning as we were "caught" by thunderstorms moving thur the valley which changed the coloration of the rock formations. Hiked several of the trails...1/2 mile away from the car..sit on a rock and absorb natural. Love it!
