    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to introduce myself. I am an older married guy who has been to Vegas many times in the past and still have not learned all the tricks. I will be in Vegas in mid-August and looking for day trip suggestions. I did a day trip to Zion a year back and it was beautiful. But it was a very long day. Looking for closer suggestions.
    Thanks for reading,
    Mike

    My day trips are all casinos, but I do see a lot of people talking about Red Rock and the Valley of Fire as scenic day trip suggestions. Welcome to the board!

    Welcome aboard mdvesper!

    I rarely wonder off the strip and if I do it's usually to downtown so I am no help in planning your day trip. That being said, you have come to the right place for advice. Check around some of the other forums and you will find the answers are are looking for. Good luck on the trip. :thumbsup:

    Try Valley of the Fire. About 75 min drive a couple of hours there and the return. Very beautiful.
