Nevada

Each time we’d gone to Vegas (admittedly not a lot of times), we mainly stayed along the Strip, exploration not going beyond casinos and shows. And it’s not very fun either, because we don’t even gamble or participate in general debauchery Vegas has been known for. Our Vegas trip is probably a lot different from a lot of other people’s.

Anyway, this trek there was kind of nice because aside from seeing family from my dad’s side, we also got to explore a bit more of Nevada. My mom’s cousins recently retired there, having been based in New York for most of their adult lives. They took us to a breakfast buffet—which I love a lot more than regular buffets—and then drove us out to see Red Rock Canyon, among other places. It was gorgeous.

There are several sites you can go to to see the different views, so it definitely helps to have some sort of transportation or vehicle if you don’t plan on trekking from one site to another, which is a tiring but available option. You could even climb some of the mountains, too, but better visit the information center before venturing out on your own.

We didn’t get to spend a lot of time in each place or see all of them, but it was nice to just sit back for a couple of minutes and take in a vastness so complete.

We also drove out to Hoover Dam later that day, but I’ve got an exorbitant amount of photos, so I’ll save that for another post. I just can’t quite believe we’d been missing out on all this beauty.

  • I’m with you on the breakfast buffet!

  • Yesss Vegas represent! Red Rock Canyon is my favorite part of the city. Fresh air and beautiful scenery. I miss it a lot.

    I’m glad you got to venture out beyond the Strip. It honestly gets tiring when people ask me if I gamble everyday just because I’m from Vegas.

    • You live in an awesome place! :) Haha sorry people are dumb. <3
