Escape the urban bustle at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Little Finland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The LINQ Promenade and St. Thomas Ghost Town. Change things up with a short trip to Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees in Meadview (about 1h 50 min away). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with The Strip, have fun at Battlefield Vegas, ponder the design of Bellagio Fountains, and try to win big at Casino at the Venetian.
