Best views in the Valley of Fire State Park

45 Minutes outside of Las Vegas is a must see Nevada State Park called, The Valley of Fire. The park may get the names from the color of the beautiful red rocks or because the temperature here can be scorching hot!

If you are planning a long Vegas trip, this is a good way to get off the strip and enjoy some views. If you are planning a trip to California or Arizona/Utah, this is a great pit stop to stretch your legs. The only downside with this park is that it isn’t part of the US National Park Pass. 


Be sure to bring your camera… and a bunch of water. This park will surely make you feel like you are on a different planet.
