Why You Should Visit Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas. Check It Out Here!

Red Rock Canyon

On a recent trip to Las Vegas I was able to explore nearby attractions and Red Rock Canyon was one of them.  While I mentioned this destination on my recent blog entry I thought it deserved a blog entry of its own.

Where is Red Rock Canyon you ask?

It is in southern Nevada, USA just west of Las Vegas.  If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend you add it to your itinerary .  It provides an exquisite scenery.  Just off highway 159 aka Blue Diamond Road, there is a side road leading to this beautiful tourist attraction.  Shortly after entering this side road you’ll arrive at a toll booth which charged us $7 USD to enter this conservation area.  Above you can see a photo of the Blue Diamond Road on the left and the Red Rock Canyon on the right. read more
