Grand Canyon
Golden Canyon, Death Valley
D A Y
A slew of desert landscapes lie within easy striking distance of
Las Vegas; one of the most popular is the Grand Canyon.
AAA travel partners Viator, Pleasant Holidays and Travel
Impressions can arrange everything from a driving tour via
van, SUV or open-air Jeep to a private helicopter excursion
directly from Las Vegas that will have you back to your hotel
in time for dinner. Fun add-ons abound and include a drive
along iconic Route 66, a walk through the narrow, curving
walls of one of the area's slot canyons and a whitewater raft
trip along the Colorado River.
Another option is a day trip to Death Valley National
Park, where desert bighorn sheep, jackrabbits and desert
tortoises all survive in the arid environment, as do
roadrunners and more than 1,000 varieties of plants. There
are also surreal landscapes, pastel-colored mountains and
remarkable views of badlands.
Less remote but equally compelling is the Valley of Fire, a
40,000-acre state park located about an hour from Las Vegas
that's known for its otherworldly-and brilliantly colored-

rock formations. Though you can drive through the park,
hiking trails offer an opportunity for close inspection of some
the park's 2,500-year-old petroglyphs, geologic wonders, such
as the striated Fire Wave, and dramatic vistas over the
canyons, domes, towers, ridges and valleys carved from sand
deposited 150 million years.
Just four miles off the Strip lies Springs Preserve, a
180-acre indoor-outdoor cultural center
that offers a glimpse into the
natural history of the
region. Named for Las
Vegas' original water source (which
dried up in 1962), the preserve includes
a botanical garden, preserved and recreated
spring houses and live desert animals, including Gila
monsters, foxes and tortoises. There are also two museums on
site: the Origen Museum, which traces the natural and
cultural history of the area; and the Nevada State Museum,
which interprets millions of years of state history.
