Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Valley of Fire

Tired of Las Vegas and already been to Hoover Dam, then you should consider a half-day trip to the Valley of Fire State Park. The park is about an hour north of Las Vegas on Interstate 15, but it’s a world away from the hustle, bustle and lights of the city. You’ll find dramatic desert landscapes, Native American petroglyphs, interesting geological formations and more – and a great majority of the sites are easily accessible by car and with short walks.

Much like Red Rock Canyon just to the west of Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire State Park (VoFSP) showcases the red sandstones of the area. The stones have been carved over time by wind and water and the entire area presents a stunning scene.
