Yes. Start with Hoover Dam and get there when they open. It will be the least crowded at that time and get more crowded all day long. Next head up toward Lake Mead and find the visitor center. Take the road along the western edge of Lake Mead north to Valley of Fire. Its probably fifty miles or so. Take a left into VOF and stop at the entrance to get your bearings. Drive into the pask and stop at VOF visitor center. After you visit head out the west side to I-15 for a quick shot back into town. In my opinion, this THE best use of time for a day trip when in Las Vegas.
