Change things up with these side-trips from Las Vegas: Clark County Heritage Museum (in Henderson) and Hoover Dam (in Boulder City). There's much more to do: take in breathtaking views at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, see the interesting displays at The Neon Museum, take in panoramic vistas at High Roller, and shop like a local with The Strip.

For where to stay, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Las Vegas day trip site.

The Silver State
The neon streets of Las Vegas represent only one chapter in the story of Nevada, a sparsely populated state offering travelers a chance to discover the country's western frontier. Utterly unlike the more populated parts of the North American continent, Nevada's landscape includes huge deserts where you can easily leave modern civilization behind and enjoy a tranquil vacation. For a taste of untamed Nevada, explore the network of paved and unpaved roads leading to some of the world's most rugged and desolate natural wonders. If trying to make a fortune is high on your itinerary, remember that in the first state to legalize gambling, a slot machine is never too far away. Even gas stations and small motels in the largely deserted rural areas offer some form of gambling to the passing traveler.
