Las Vegas might be the main course for a lot of people, but don’t forget the desert! Aside from gambling, there are a lot of other things that can be done in the Mojave Desert.


Experience the spectacular scenery of the desert by going off-road. While some of the areas are restricted, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying it! If you’d rather have something more exciting, try dune bashing!


There are a variety of museums that people can visit; ranging from the history of the area, old and famous neon signs, to the nuclear tests they do around the area.
  • Boulder City Museum & Historical Association
  • Hoover Dam, Bureau of Reclamation
  • Clark County Museum
  • Atomic Testing Museum
  • Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum
  • Las Vegas International Scouting Museum

  • Las Vegas Springs Preserve
  • Lied Discovery Children’s Museum
  • The Neon Museum
  • Nevada State Museum & Historical Society

Parks and Reserves

Camping under the desert night sky is one of the most amazing things you’ll ever experience in your life. If you enjoy a good hike, Red Rock offers a breathtaking view of the surroundings.
