Our favorite day trip from Las Vegas is the Valley of Fire State Park. Everyone knows about Red Rock Canyon as a beautiful natural landscape, but based on how many visitors we encountered, fewer know the beauties of Valley of Fire. This park will make you fall in love with its beautiful landscapes. We recommend you visit this park any month of the year except for the summer months. It is very hot so it is advisable to go in the morning.
