We decided to take a break from Las Vegas and ventured out to Valley of Fire State Park on the way to Hoover Dam. It was only $10 to enter the park. It had beautiful scenery of red sandstone and rock formations. There were many places to pull over to stretch your legs, take pictures and even have a picnic.... More

Pros: It's close to Vegas; approximately 55 miles, northeast of Las Vegas. Inexpensive entrance fee of $10, per vehicle. There are restrooms throughout the park. The park has... More

We went in July 2013 and of course it was hot. And so bright! No shade. We were on our way to Vegas and this was the last State/National park we saw in the States last summer. The kids were on a roll collecting junior ranger badges, so we stopped here (although this SP didn't have a junior ranger program...... More

Just a 45 minute ride from the strip you'll find this beautiful area of the world. Take the time to visit this and get terrific photographs while escaping the hustle and bustle of the casinos. You can thank me later!

Wow, the sudden change in landscape is riveting. The visitor center is very informative; has two films to explain what you are seeing plus much more. If you are short in time, take the drive that starts at the center.

What a beautiful park. The colors are amazing and the odd shapes make you think. Bring water and enjoy the trails if you want....if your nor into walking you can drive thru and see the beauty just as good. So peaceful!! Also bathrooms all throughout the park.

Great place to visit, if you go on a tour look for a short one! It was hot and it could have been cut short, because you see a lot in short amount of time

Well worth my over 24 hours flight from Pacific to Asia then to US. Valley of fire inspired me to write a blog. It made me realize how nature really owns the earth and how short a time was given to us to enjoy what we have. And in this world, we really have nothing to bring with us when... More
