The 5 Best Day Trips You can Drive to From Las Vegas


Mt Charleston

The 5 Best Day Trips you Can Take from Las Vegas Mt Charleston

If you’re a nature lover and you are ready for a nice hike take a drive up to Mt Charleston and take a walk along one of the many trails. It snows up here during the Winter so be ready for it if you visit during that time of year. We like to visit Mt Charleston for the smell of pine trees, something we don’t get too often in Las Vegas.

Hoover Dam

Best Day Trips from Las Vegas Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam is historic. It is the foundation on which Las Vegas is built. We highly recommend taking the tour if you have the time and money. The tour will give you a behind the scenes look at what it took to build the dam and just what it does for the city of Las Vegas.

Lake Mead

Lake Mead is the Best Day Trip from Las Vegas for Cliff Jumping and Diving

Lake Mead is amazing in the middle of Summer when the city is scorching hot. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hot at Lake Mead too but at least you’ll get to play in the water. It is a nice, refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas strip.

Pro Tip: If you have access to a boat or you rent one, you can kill two birds with one stone by seeing the backside of Hoover Dam while visiting Lake Mead. Although we strongly recommend the Hoover Dam tour, this is an easy way to see both. 

Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon is home to amazing natural beauty. If you can’t travel all the way to the Grand Canyon or you’ve already seen it try Red Rock Canyon. It’s the perfect day trip for a hike, picnic or just a scenic drive.

The Grand Canyon

How to See the Grand Canyon when Visiting Las Vegas

The Grand Canyon is a few hours drive from Las Vegas. If money is no object, you can hire a helicopter to fly you over and you can get a bird’s eye view of the majestic canyon.
