It’s not possible to see the world in an hour, but the Las Vegas Strip National Scenic Byway is the closest you’re going to get.
Just 15 miles from the bright lights and casinos of Las Vegas lies the magnificent Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (NCA). With its expansive sandstone rock formations, hiking trails, rock climbing and picnic areas. Red Rock provides a dramatic contrast to nearby Las Vegas.
In between Las Vegas and Lake Mead lies Valley of Fire, an impressive canvas of wind-sculpted red sandstone that transforms with each slight movement of the sun.
