One hour from Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is a vibrant, colorful outdoor destination. The Valley of Fire is a great day trip from Vegas. It offers breathtaking views, hiking trails, and petroglyphs. This guide will show you the best places to visit in the Valley of Fire and how to plan your trip. The first time was in 2017 and again in 2022. Tim and I were astonished by the beauty of the valley. They are unlike anything you'll see when driving from Las Vegas. We have been to the Valley of Fire twice so far.
