  1. Default Las Vegas daytrip recommendations???

    We will be visiting Las Vegas in May 07' to get married and would like to rent a car and take a roadtrip/ daytrip and see some of the sights outside of Las Vegas. We have never seen the grand canyon or hoover dam so we would like to definitly include them. Any suggestions on what we should see or routes to destinations? Anything would be helpful. Thanks all!

    Default Just one day?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The number of possibilities of things to do within a few hours of Las Vegas is numerous, and frequently discussed on the forum. Some of the most popular things to do in a single day include Death Valley, Valley of Fire, Zion NP, and the Hoover Dam.

    Grand Canyon is a bit too far to do in one day and really requires an overnight stay in my opinion. Its a 5 hour drive one way, which doesn't leave much time for sightseeing if you try to do it as a round trip.

    If you have a few days to explore, you could also do a loop seeing Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion.

    There are many possibilities - and you'll find even more suggestions if you search the forum - it just depends upon how much time you have.

    RTA is based in Las Vegas, partly because of its proximity to amazing roadtrip venues. Michael's suggests are great,

    I would add Grapevine Canyon, Oatman, the London Bridge, Kelso Dunes and Death Valley to the mix. Also, here are some of the local's stories we have published about Las Vegas.

    Default One Not to Miss

    I can't recommend Death Valley highly enough. Unforgettable!
