Las Vegas may be best known for glitzy casinos and glamorous shows, but Sin City is truly a wonderland for outdoor recreation lovers. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is an easy 30-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip and has more than 30 hikes and hiking trails. The Kraft Mountain Loop is a favorite thanks to rock scrambles and a wash chock full of colorful rock formations. Valley of Fire State Park is also popular with geologically inclined hikers due to its abundance of orange, pink, and red rock formations with names like Elephant Rock, Fire Wave, and Mouse Tank. Post-hike, fill up on a walking food tour with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours.
