DayTrips




General: First of all, let me say that there are literally dozens of very good books and websites on "hikes" and or "hiking" in and around the Las Vegas area. In spite of this, I decided to add to the fray by publishing two books of my own during 2014. One on hikes in and around Las Vegas and another on petroglyph sites in Clark County. Click here to check them out here ... My Books. Clicking this link to will take you to a page with some of my favorite reference books and sites ... Site Reference Library.   When it came to categorizing the trip pages for this site, I felt that the term "hiking" was too restrictive. Wanting a category that was more inclusive, I chose the term DayTrips. In addition to locations that provide only hiking activities, this category is now able to include a much broader spectrum of activities and locations available to the millions of visitors that visit the Las Vegas area every year. Combining a DayTrip with a night of dining and gambling can not only make a vacation visit more enjoyable and rewarding - it may even save you money in the long run. Site-seeing activities can generally be divided into two basic categories; DayTrips and RoadTrips. For the purposes of this site, a RoadTrip is defined as an extended trip in a motor vehicle involving a minimum of one overnight stay; a DayTrip is defined as any trip that can be accomplished in a single day. Click here to view my Roadtrips and Index.

DayTrip Definition: Using a car or similar mode of public transportation, a DayTrip is a visit to any locale, destination or attraction that can be completed with a round trip from one’s point of origin in a single day. For the purpose of maintaining consistency in providing directions, mileage and other location information, I use the Stratosphere Tower on the Las Vegas Strip as a common “Point of Origin”.

Daytrip Classifications: I have further defined daytrips by placing them into one of two basic classifications, natural or man-made, although sometimes both may apply. To be included it must be a well known or publicly recognized destination or attraction such as a national or state park, historic site, building, trailhead, conservation area, wildlife refuge or off-road pull-off with vehicle accessibility and be recognized for at least one of the following Primary activities:
    • Hiking - A form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. It usually takes place on trails in rural or wilderness areas.
    • Hiking/Rock-hounding - The recreational collecting of rocks and/or mineral specimens from their natural environment.
    • Hiking/Birding - The observing and identifying of wild birds and fowl in their natural habitats.
    • Hiking/Photographing - Site-seeing that involves the taking of pictures of natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of textures as well as man-made structures in their natural environment.
Daytrip Categories: For searching and locating DayTrips that may meet your personal interests and available time constraints, I have created two Indexes.

The first, SECTION ONE below, lists DayTrips grouped by location. As there are basically only about seven primary roads that lead away from the city of Las Vegas, I have chosen the route numbers of these roads and their general direction as the title heading for daytrips located within that specified area.

The second, SECTION TWO below, lists all daytrips alphabetically by their Classification Type. Following each location title I have further indicated what I consider to be the primary activities for each trip.
