We go out to Red Rock Canyon every time we visit Vegas. It just seems to help balance the eccentricities of the strip. If it's your first time, options abound... You can simply drive through the park loop for stunning vistas, stop along at different...More

Las Vegas has great natural adventures close at hand. Red Rock is one the the best! Child friendly with all levels of hiking from the least taxing to the most. Many people chose to bike through or even drive. Pretty awesome. Provided by nature.

This is interesting to drive through. Stop and hike a bit. It is worth seeing and maybe even a picnic would be fun. They also have a place for kids to learn about the area. Good for the family.

Breath taking views. Beautiful rock formations . The red in the rocks is awesome. We rented a Mustang convertible bundled up and rode. Real treat wild Burro's . Fun freeing ride. Wonderful retreat from the city.

The best part of Red Rock is being nowhere near the hustle and bustle of the strip. It's very quiet with plenty of hikes to take on and rock climbing for the adventurous. Good scenery even if no hikes are done, lots of picture opportunities...More

Depending on the route, 15 - 20 minutes from the strip. Bike Tour: did not take this, but my opinion is that you better be in shape. Remember, it is a desert.
