3. Lake Mead 

Lake Mead is a go-to place for visitors and locals alike, found only a short 40 minutes away from the Strip. You can camp by the lake, hike by the Colorado River and canoe back, or just enjoy boats and water toys. If you want more of a beach experience, you can rent Jet Skis and play on the sandy shores. Stay safe by wearing life jackets during all your time on the water. 

4. Hoover Dam 

Located 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas on the Nevada-Arizona border, Hoover Dam attracts more than a million visitors each year. Visit the site for yourself and learn the history of the structure and about those who built it in the 1930s. Peruse through the museum or choose a guided tour.

8. Death Valley National Park 

Located 2 hours from Las Vegas, Death Valley is famous for its beautiful views and varying terrain. You can explore the salt flats, one of the lowest points of elevation in North America or climb the sandy hills of one of the many dunes in the area. If you want to stay awhile, pick out a first-come, first-served campsite—the National Park Service says they rarely fill up. 

During the day, choose from hikes like Dante’s View or the Natural Bridge. If hiking isn’t for you, you can see the multi-colored rocks at the Artist Palette. Whatever you decide to do, make sure to pack a lot of water.

9. Zion National Park

Rent a car and drive 3 hours from Las Vegas to Zion National Park, an awesome day trip and a must-see destination. Zion is famous for its diverse hiking trails and spectacular views. Ride the free shuttle and learn about the history of the area, or if a certain stop piques your interest, hop off and go exploring! Some hikes have water running through the trails or springs that you can swim in.

10. Grand Canyon National Park 

Take a road trip from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in a minivan or SUV rental and your entire crew can make the 3-hour trip together to a bucket-list destination. Here you can camp, river raft, hike, backpack, cycle, go on a helicopter tour, ride donkeys, visit a museum, picnic, ride a train, and walk across the skywalk. You could spend a week here and still find new places to explore and hike. If you prefer to travel with a guide, there are a variety of tour packages available.
