The Las Vegas Strip is synonymous with bright lights, glitzy casinos, extravagant shows and expensive shopping. But Las Vegas has way more to offer than just what lies on the Strip. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and Valley of Fire State Park offer spectacular rock formations and miles of trails to explore. Nevada's southernmost city, Laughlin, offers gaming and entertainment at a laid-back pace. An hour west of Las Vegas and an hour east of Death Valley National Park, Pahrump truly is the heart of the desert and the perfect place to enjoy the best of southern Nevada. There are luxurious golf courses, parks and museums, and no shortage of gaming and dining choices.
