Dear Patricia,
Please be sure to check out the Red Rocks Canyon right outside of the city 5 miles to the west (You can get on West Charleston Blvd. stay on it all the way on to Red Rocks natural preserve. Please see the web site on my localyte site or click on it here . Feel free to call me if you would like any more assistance about the Las Vegas area? I am here to serve you any way I can!
The Virgin River Gorge is a great little area too. It's north of Vegas, en route to St. George and Zion National Park—you'll drive right through it on your way. You'll actually be driving through the northwestern tip of Arizona here, in an area known as the Arizona Strip. Hiking and camping are available here, if you like solitude and a desert environment. Bighorn sheep are around, if you keep your eyes peeled. Joshua trees and yucca are everywhere.
