This was not a typical visit to Las Vegas. We were arriving to join in the canvassing ahead of the recent midterms, but we'd be staying on the Strip. So as an antidote to what we knew would be sensory overload, we took a couple...More

Breathtaking views. Easy ride with Ez Ride LV bike company. Well worth 3 hours of your tome for freaky air, sunshine and exercise.

Quick drive outside of Vegas! Beautiful scenes. You can pull over and “park” by the different rocks/cliffs. Everything is pathed and labeled- lots of tourists going off the path to explore. Bring your camera and good climbing boots- amazing photo ops!!

Red rock Canyon is absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I went on a rainy day and still had fun. The drive through is one way and you can’t go back, so pick up a trail map at the visitor center and plan your trip out...More

I get queasy on the second floor of my house if I look down through the window. You won't have any problem driving -- or even hiking -- the loop. It is graceful, smooth and the elevations are very gradual and modest. You... More

I would suggest going by one of the touring buses. They make all the main stops and stress free and you get to meet people along with all the historic information that most people miss

Not technically, but if you park outside and walk in, there's not much to stop you. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night though, that's dangerous. I might suggest visiting Calico Basin, it's essentially the front of... More

I see we've missed replying to you - sorry. The general order looks fine. If you have only one day to spend in Death Valley, including Red Rock Canyon might be a bit of a stretch. If your trip includes any of the Southwestern parks like the Grand Canyon or the Utah parks, Red Rock Canyon will be anticlimactic. However, from Death Valley to Los Angeles is is only 4-5 hours, and you could stay in Death Valley long enough to enjoy sunset somewhere (Mesquite Sand Dunes would be perfect,...More
