When traveling to Las Vegas, many people go to see the lights and excitement of the Strip, but if you are looking for an even more exceptional experience, definitely check out Red Rock. Red Rock Canyon is located 20 minutes west of Las Vegas, but feels as if it is in a completely different location than the sites of the Strip.
The mountains at Red Rock Canyon are open for a 13-mile scenic drive that allows you to stop along the way for photos and sightseeing. There are also a number of trails both for biking and hiking. The area begins with a visitor’s office that provides a lot of information about the area, history about the mountains, and a gift shop. The non-profit company, Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association, provides all the services and lots of information and assistance in getting the most out of your visit.
Because of the gorgeous views and great opportunities Red Rock Canyon has to offer, Red Rock Casino, Resort, and Spa is a perfect place to head after a scenic tour. Red Rock provides the basic desires for gambling, but goes above and beyond for the rest. Red Rock includes hotel rooms and suites with breathtaking views and amenities. There are plenty of restaurants at which to eat that all have great reviews, but the Red Rock Buffet is a safe bet.
Within Red Rock Resort, there are a large variety of different activities for the guests. This includes Las Vegas’s largest bowling alley, consisting of 72 lanes, where the Tournament of Champions is held. Red Rock Casino provides lively entertainment throughout the year including a wide variety of musicians, such as the sold-out Pitbull concert held on August 10, 2012.
As for the spa aspect of Red Rock, the salon provides all sorts of pampering options, from hair styling to manicures and pedicures. The best part is that the pricing is reasonable and suitable for the priceless skills of the salon employees. Red Rock offers the more common activities for people’s free time, but takes it to a different level. There is a 16-screen movie theater and an arcade made for all ages.
Parents should not forget to check out the childcare center, which consists of a floor-to-ceiling maze to keep your children entertained for hours. As for the whole family or a group of friends, the beautiful three-acre pool is a must-see for relaxation, sunshine, and a good time.
Whether you enjoy the gorgeous view of these unique mountains from behind glass windows, or right within the mountains, this area of city and nature provide everything you could desire and is the best of both worlds. Red Rock Canyon and Red Rock Casino are two places that should be on your next itinerary in Las Vegas.
