    Highlights

    • Hike through fascinating sandstone rock formations.
    • Tour the Hoover Dam.

    Las Vegas is known for bright lights, casinos and nightclubs, but Southern Nevada's largest city is also a great jumping-off point for exploring the great outdoors. This road trip from Los Angeles is packed with natural wonders and action-packed activities, while experiencing a touch of classic Sin City culture.
    The five-day journey is most ideal between fall and spring, but can be enjoyed year-round, since hikes are limited to early and late afternoon hours.
