I've been to Las Vegas dozens of times, but only went here last year. It really is wonderful. The colours and strange pattens on the rocks are stunning. It is a shame the drive through only covers a fraction of the canyon, but any longer it would no doubt be spoiled.

We drove through this area and wow how beautiful. There are some trails but we didn't attempt them. To me they just seemed not something we were interested in doing. We are not big hikers and had done many hikes in Zion and Bryce. Cost $7 to drive thru this area but the money is worth the beauty. Check out the gift shop too, they have some nice things.

Beautiful is the only word to describe Red Rock Canyon. I have been there several times and the time before was January this year, yet I always see something I don't remember from the past. Really a treasure in the desert.

What an impressive place and so close to LV strip. Be sure to spend the day either hiking or driving around and make sure you have plenty of water.

This place took my breath away. We had a lovely breakfast and pulled out a map to see just how far we'd be driving to Red Rock and the waitress said, "Oh, it's about 30 minutes straight down the road". And she was right. It was literally a short ride out of town.
We drove the loop through, which is less than 20 miles, but it was some of the most stunning displays of nature I have seen, apart from the coastline of Maine.

We drove, took pictures, took a short walk and spent the whole time saying, "Wow! Look at THAT!" Truly one of the most beautiful parks, and not a very big investment of time. It's a great break from the glitz and noise of the strip. Totally worth it.
