$10 fee to enter even if you're military. So many different places to hike. Rock climbing easy enough for kids at Seven Sisters. Bring your dogs and hike over the hills and do some gentle climbing. The views are spectacular and maybe you'll get to see the sheep.

What a highlight of our vacation! To leave the noise and people behind to go to one of the most spectacular sights that nature can provide. This was an entire day of peace, quiet and natural beauty! A slight charge ($10) to enter the park was nothing when compared to the sights you can see. Just unreal! Best to go... More

I visited here with friends during a week long trip to Vagas with friends. We had a car which would be a must and we were lucky with beautiful blue skies in January. I would definitely recommend a tour out here as a variant to he buzz of Vagas. The scenery is not only breathtaking but every corner displays different... More

The Valley of the Fire State Park is underrated and should be put on your itinerary if travelling in this area. The park is full of amazing rock formations that light up with a rich red colour during sunrise and sunset. Although it is still worth a visit during the day, it is most impressive at sunset.

We drove by this park numerous times On our way from Canada to Arizona and back. We finally made time to drive through, and we were not disappointed. A short drive from Las Vegas or from Mesquite whether driving to or from Canada, It's an easy drive and only requires an inexpensive Nevada State Park day pass. I certainly suggest... More

We came upon this state park on our way to the Lost City Museum. When we saw the visitor center, we went in. Such stunning rock formations here. There are many trails and sites off the road to see but unfortunately we did not have the time to take them here. This would be a good day trip on its'... More

That's right just a hour from Las Vegas is where you will find this magical desert wonderland. There are so many different hiking trails and giant boulders to climb on. The colors are magnificent. I personally love them at sunrise and sunset. That's when it looks like it's on fire. Be sure to visit the visitors center, the petroglyphs, Elephant... More

The Valley of Fire State Park is breath-taking. Well worth the visit. There are many places where you can pull off to get out and explore. The Petroglyphs are very interesting. This was probably the best part of our trip to Las Vegas. Would like to come back when it is a little warmer (but not too warm) and spend... More

Our Valley of Fire scenic driving tour was amazing because of the many amazing scenic vistas that are handicap accessible and it was only about 45 minutes by car from Las Vegas. Pros -Like driving and walking around a cowboy and Indian movie landscape. The hive and natural bridge rock formations and Indian cave drawings were great. -Handicap accessible: You... More

One hour drive north of Las Vegas in Moapa Nevada. Super easy drive worth every second! The park is breathtakingly beautiful. It can be enjoyed from the car window and up close on hikes and camping. We hiked the White Domes Loop. It was moderately difficult at the beginning getting down into the river valley but from there it was... More
