Red Rock Canyon

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by kona on October 24, 2006

Although this is nowhere near as beautiful as the Grand Canyon, it is worth seeing as a shorter day trip. It's only about 15-20 minutes away from the strip by bus/car. You can book this tour directly at the hotel you're staying at, and the tours generally leave early in the morning. You do see natural beauty out in the desert with rock formations that are rusty red in color at the top and beige/grayish at the bottom, which is explained in the tour. You will see wildlife, which can be turtles, burros (like a donkey), mountain lions, etc. There are also old ruins and drawings along the way of the scenic tour.
