7. Southern NEVADA

Las Vegas Area

   Discover the historical and outdoor adventure side of Las Vegas. The local Las Vegas area is rich in places to explore, to travel back in time, and to experience the many wonders of nature. Step away from the glitz and lights of Las Vegas and venture out to Boulder City, Nelson, Laughlin, Overton, or Mesquite. Hike the many trails and enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Valley of Fire State Park and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Wild burros are easily seen, special care needs to be taken as they have no fear of people. Unless you are with a tour guide it is recommended that you view them from your vehicle. Because of the heat, tours are available only in fall and spring.
