We spent a week in Vegas and drove to nearby attractions each day.... THIS was by far the most beautiful rivaled only by our trip out to the Grand Canyon. The color of the rocks is hard to imagine until you see them in person. We stopped one place to see some awesome petroglyphs but were disappointed that previous tourists... More

About an hour's ride from the strip, the scenery here was worth the trip. There is a small admission charge per car, but I spent 3 hours here taking photographs and exploring. Could have probably spent another three, but had other plans for the afternoon. Nice little visitors center to visit also. Definitely glad I took the time out to... More

A really great park. Well worth the hour or so drive from Las Vegas. The park is beautiful, with a number of very fine things to look at and short hikes (my wife and I didn't have time to do any of the longer hikes). If you're in a rush, head up to the White Domes loop; otherwise, you can... More

What a beautiful place to visit. People of all ages can enjoy this place. Had my 90 year old aunt with us for the hike to Mouse's Tank. Lots of wild flowers blooming on the hike. Be sure to take water with you into this park as there is no water available except at the visitor center. See very little... More

This is a surprising State Park that many people in Las Vegas have even missed. It has many wonderful red rock outcroppings that will remind you of Moab, UT or Sedona, AZ. Take water it gets hot. Films have been shot here to give an "other world" appearance. It is well worth it, and we have visited almost all the... More

Love the park . The only not so great thing about it was that it was very fine sand and made for not so easy hiking.

I had read a review in a travel magazine recommending the Valley of Fire State Park so I decided to check it out. It was a great one day experience that anyone should try and explore when visiting LV. It is just an easy one hour drive from downtown Las Vegas and from the entry point to exit you will... More

When Lady Luck isn't smiling on you in the casino jungles of Vegas, take an hour drive to the Valley of Fire State Park in Overton and let the beauty of mother nature soothe your soul. The amazing red rock formations are very similar to the ones I saw at the Garden of the Gods park near Colorado Springs and... More

Not far from las Vegas. Seven Sisters is my favorite place for picnic.bring plenty of water and sunflower seeds for the ground squirrels who are quite the little beggars. Became friends with most of them and discovered the fresh unshelled almonds are favorites. The park is just magnificent but tends to be very hot in the summer. Bring plenty of... More
