What is the best way to see Red Rock Canyon?

We have been back and forth on if we wanted to fit this in on our last full day in Vegas - just maybe the morning - 10am to 2 or so. What would be the best way to see this? Rent a car? Do a Limo tour? Or one of the other tours?

Thanks!

Rent a car. This way you will be on your own schedule, stop when you want to stop, see what you want to see, do what you want to do. It will be better, cheaper and more convenient than any other way.

Then you will have the car for the next 24 hours (or however long you will be in Vegas) to drive to other places and if the timing is right- back to the airport.

Agreed Rent a Car. You can also drive up the road about 4-5 miles towards Blue Diamond and there is a neat little replica of a ghost town.

Imo, seeing Red Rock while hiking is by far the best way.

rental. that way you have some air conditioning when you need it, you can haul a lot of bottled water. the road is circular. stop in the visitor center, grab a map, many parking spots to get out and hike, climb rocks,

I'm with oxygenator. Red Rock Canyon is one of those places that is OK from a car, but not that great. You have to hike/scramble to get to see what it really has to offer.

Check out Calico basin. It's free and just before the Red Rock loop. There's a boardwalk loop to walk around with signage about history, plants, and wildlife. It's a nice walk.

Oh yeah, you definitely want a car.

Pink Jeep Tours.

They picked us up at hotel, showed us the canyon with geological explanations, fed us a box lunch, and delivered us to our hotel.

No muss, no fuss...
