I’m in Las Vegas for a couple of weeks and I don’t gamble. What do you do in Vegas if you don’t go to the Casinos? Well I am traveling in an RV with a Jeep in tow so I decided to ask many of the more knowledgeable travelers on Facebook. From the many suggestions given to me I decided to visit the following areas:
Red Rock Canyon, Death Valley, Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Valley of Fire, Lost City Museum, Hoover Dam, Lake Meade
Then there are many activities in Vegas that are free:
Fountains of Bellagio Water Show, The Botanical Conservatory at the Bellagio, Live Circus acts at the Circus-Circus casino, Atlantis Show & Aquarium at the Caesars Forum Shops, Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo, Viva Vision Light & Sound show at Fremont Street Experience, Live Music and Flair Bartenders at the Harrah’s Carnaval Court, “I lost my M” 3D movie at M&M’s World, Volcano at the Mirage, Saltwater Aquarium at the Mirage, Miracle Mile Fountain Water Show at Planet Hollywood, Mystic Falls Sunset Stampede Show at Sam’s Town, Interactive Fish Feeding Show at the Silverton, Mermaid Swims at the Silverton, Lake of Dreams at the Wynn
I began my adventure by taking on Red Rock Canyon and Death Valley first. Red Rock Canyon reminded me very much of the Badlands loop drive in South Dakota.
Many movies were made using Red Rock Canyon as a backdrop.
You can tour in a Pink Jeep!
The Red Rock Canyon offers many, many hiking trails. Due to my schedule the day I visited I chose not to hike. This is definitely an area I will return to one day to hike through.
And of course that is a Ferrari sitting by my Jeep!
After completing the loop around Red Rock Canyon I headed toward Death Valley’s Devil Hole. Little did I know that the bonus was a trip through Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
Devils Hole is part of Death Valley National Park but is quite a distance from Furnace Creek Visitors Center. At the gateway to Death Valley there is a beautiful hotel. It appears to be vacant however
A burned out shell of a building is across the street.
The lowest place in America is here too!
