Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Take a break from the city and head to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Casino at the Venetian and The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian. There's still lots to do: shop like a local with The Strip, try your luck at Wynn Las Vegas, ponder the design of Bellagio Fountains, and enjoy some diversion at Paris Las Vegas.

To find more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Las Vegas trip itinerary maker website .

In April, daily temperatures in Las Vegas can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.

A desert town with an interesting history, Boulder City was created by the United States government in 1931 to provide housing for workers building the Hoover Dam, a famous Depression-era project.
Hoover Dam has been added to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 13th (Sat): admire the engineering at Hoover Dam and then identify plant and animal life at Boulder Beach Campground (Lake Mead National Recreation Area). Here are some ideas for day two: take in the views from Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, enjoy the sand and surf at Willow Beach, and then identify plant and animal life at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Boulder City itinerary planner.

Getting from Las Vegas to Boulder City by car takes about an hour. Other options: take a bus. In April, daily temperatures in Boulder City can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. On the 15th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive back home.
