While you're in Las Vegas, take a visit to Red Rock Canyon, one of the Mojave Desert's most beautiful attractions. Choose a leisurely six-hour tour, or go for the four-hour afternoon express option if your time in Las Vegas is limited.
  • Explore Red Rock Canyon on a Las Vegas day trip
  • See Nevada’s wild desert scenery and learn Native American history
  • Upgrade to tour option with picnic lunch at Howard Hughes’ former ranch
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Las Vegas hotels
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your Las Vegas hotel for the trip to Red Rock Canyon, a National Conservation Area that’s just 16 miles (26 kilometers) outside of Las Vegas’ bustling downtown. If you opt for the half-day “Red Rock Express” tour, travel the 13-mile (21-kilometer) loop road that takes in Red Rock Canyon’s most scenic spots, learning about the canyon’s geography and wildlife along the way. On the longer “Red Rock Canyon” tour, there’s more time to stop and check out the desert sights: See the colorful sandstone at Calico Hills, visit limestone roasting pits used by Native Americans, and take in the petroglyphs at Willow Springs. After driving the loop road through the park, continue to Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, where you sit down to a picnic lunch on a ranch once owned by eccentric millionaire Howard Hughes. The tour ends with drop-off at your Las Vegas hotel.
