Want a break from the hustle, bustle and bright lights of Vegas? You don't have far to go. Red Rock Canyon is a short drive away and, although there can be quite a lot of people there, you can find peace, quiet and a lot of history.
Shortly after the entrance is the visitor centre which is modern, relatively large, interesting and has helpful and friendly staff. From there you can drive round the area using the provided map to help you understand what is there and stop off to go walking in the hills.
Not a whole day excursion unless you want to do a lot of walking (take water!) but a very pleasant and informative afternoon change.
