  1. Default Vegas road trip adventures

    I am going to be in Vegas in late March & will be staying over 3 days after my conference to explore the desert. I thought about taking a road trip to Death Valley, but it seems like lodging is limited. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Default options

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Since Death Valley is only 2 hours away from Vegas, its a place that can easily be visited as a daytrip where you can return to Vegas the same night.

    If you decide to stay in Death Valley, then Furnace Creek is probably your best bet (either at the Ranch or the Inn), but the National Parks Website has more specific details.

  3. Default other ideas?

    Since I'll have 2-1/2 days to explore, do you have any suggestions for another day? Something that is a MUST see? Thought about Red Rock Canyon or Valley of Fire State park...

    Default six of them

    Vegas is a great place to do daytrips from, and RTA has an article giving ideas for 6 of them, including the places you've mention. With 2-3 days, you could also look at going over to the Grand Canyon. You could also consider going to both Zion and Bryce Canyon in Utah.

    Default Grapevine Canyon

    Grapevine Canyon has long played a role in local native American historical culture -- some believe it to be have been part of the birth canal of the nations of the area. No matter what you'll be amazed at the variety and frequency of the petroglyphs in the area. It's only about 90 minutes south of Las Vegas. More information here.
