Popular parks in Las Vegas

Many people visit Las Vegas to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of dazzling lights, glamorous casinos, gourmet restaurants and shows with stars.

But however attractive Sin City may be, you can discover even more interesting things right outside the city. Due to its location in the rocky and rugged Mojave Desert, the city is actually closer to beautiful nature than you think.


The best parks and reserves of the City of Sins

If you crave fresh air and adventure, head to one of these five US national parks, which are just three hours from the city.

All you need is sturdy walking shoes, plenty of water, your camera and a few extra days in Las Vegas!

If you get the impression that the sights of Las Vegas are only in the best casinos, think again.

The valley is home to many open spaces, ideal for hiking, cycling, jogging, picnicking, relaxing and sunbathing. Wildlife abounds in many Las Vegas parks. Migratory birds and animals of all kinds can be seen around springs and ponds, especially in the early morning or late evening. The variety of creatures you notice may surprise some visitors: rabbits, lizards, large horned sheep, peacocks and donkeys. From ancient petroglyphs to modern playgrounds, each of these Las Vegas parks has something to see.

60 kilometers east of the center of Las Vegas is located Meade National Recreation Area, offering year-round recreational activities: boating, fishing, excursions, picnics and hiking.

Roads, intertwining in and out of the flooded canyons, also open up opportunities for cycling and driving. If you are looking for additional entertainment, you can rent a canoe or canoe and ride the rapids of the mighty Colorado River.

But the star of the show here is the famous Hoover Dam, an outstanding engineering feat. This national historic landmark, first built in the 1930s, is one of the largest power generators in the United States.
