5 Ultimate Day Trips From Las Vegas:

In March 2023, we visited Las Vegas for a week and got to do some incredible day trips while there. This is going to very on ability, whether or not you like to hike and do more adventurous things. There are scenic car ride options too that we enjoyed. I recommend setting up a car rental for some of your day trips so that you can control how long you stay in one place, but if that isn't for you- there are many tour options available to facilitate your commute.

  1. Sky Dive the Grand Canyon: This was a bucket list item for us, we rented a car and drove to the South Rim. It's four hours each way and don't forget about the time change. We went with Paragon Skydive, they were fantastic and the reviews are great! The view of the Grand Canyon from the air is something I'll never forget.

  2. Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam day trip: We stopped at the Hoover Dam and you can also walk up to the bridge to see it from a different point of view. This trip goes to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon and you can do the Skywalk. Viator has some great options for day trips out to this area.

  3. Red Rock Canyon- This was one of my favorites, it's close and the 13 mile scenic drive has stops along the way for you to get out and explore more of the area. Get your guide as some options for tours or you can do this by yourself and just pay the entrance fee of $20 a car.

  4. Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bay- We didn't have time to get to this spot but we can't wait to return and check out the area. I've heard great things and honestly we just ran out of time, I've linked a great day tour option for you here.

  5. Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park- You get to visit 2 of Utah's National Parks, another option we definitely wanted to do. This is a full day tour with lunch included. The views and photo ops will be worth all the driving around for the day and moments you'll never forget. Check it out here.

Their is so much to see in Nevada, Arizona and Utah. And it is all in reach! Some other great options is Valley of Fire or headed to California Mojave desert which is about 2 hour round trip depending on where you go. Research and plan your time, I know we can't wait to go back and do some more exploring and have great adventures!

Travel on my friends!
