If you were travelling at another time of year I would consider it, but my pale European body cannot take this blistering heat we are having at the moment!

I'm sure you know the places to see "Off Strip!", but just in case you don't.....

Red Rock Canyon....Valley of Fire....Mount Charleston.....Blue Diamond Village.

Been to Vegas on business before so never got to check out the area. I don't like to gamble. It's just a little get away my best friend that lives in Texas is going to be out there on business. So while he's tied up in meetings during the day i'll be out riding. I'll have to check those places you mentioned out.

Mt Washington's a fun way to get out of the heat. There's an outdoor burger and beer joint at the top, as well as some cabins.

Someday is not a day of the week.

I think Tigerpawed means Mt Charleston........

Valley of Fire is an hour north of Vegas on the way to Utah.
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/nea...alley-of-fire/

Mount Charleston is NW of the city about 35mls.
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/nea...nt-charleston/

Red Rock Canyon is within easy reach of the City & Blue Diamond Village is 1/2hr further on along the same road.....(if I didn't have much time, this would be my choice, but it would still take up 1/2 day)

Someday is not a day of the week.

Hey Joseph - on I-15 just outside Mesquite, NV is a section that cuts thru AZ on the way to UT. DON'T miss it IF you're anywhere close to it! Cuts thru a very twisty canyon.
