Places Near Las Vegas

If the clamor of Las Vegas gets too much for you, head for the quieter environs of Lake Mead, the reservoir created by the Hoover Dam waters. Lake Mead is thirty miles southeast of Las Vegas City. You can go fishing, boating or diving here. Drive across to the Hoover Dam, eight miles from Lake Mead and admire the gigantic dam, one of the tallest ever built.

For more of nature, visit the Valley of Fire State Park, 55 miles to the northeast from Lake Mead with its interesting rock formations or the Red Rock Canyon, just 20 miles to the west of Las Vegas city, a popular rock climbing destination.
