As all of us “locals” in Hawaii know, Las Vegas is where many people from the Aloha State like to visit. A lot of Hawaii people have a passion for gambling; so their propensity for visiting the Silver State of Nevada and Las Vegas, in particular, is pretty understandable. But there are many other things to see and do besides the usual stuff, like gambling, shopping at the outlet malls and eating at buffets.
And many of these things are only a short drive outside of Clark County. As an example, there are many national parks, national monuments and national wildlife preserves of historic and geographic significance only a relatively short hour drive outside the city limits. Grand Canyon National Park is a 4 to 5 hour drive east of Las Vegas and you can easily get there by car on a one day trip; but it would preferable to stay overnight so can can have more time to capture the grandeur of this magnificent geologic wonder. Or if you don’t want to drive so far, you can see Zion National Park within a 3 to 3 1/2 hour drive north of the city. And another 2 hour drive north of Zion, there is spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park. Even closer is Lake Mead National Recreation Area where you can visit the lake as well as see Hoover Dam and the newly constructed Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge that spans the Colorado River. This bridge is reputed to be the longest concrete arch bridge in the Americas.
