Road trips from Las Vegas

Book a fly-drive holiday to Las Vegas to experience the ultimate road trip. They don’t get much more iconic than this, through the Mojave Desert on roads that stretch as far as the eye can see.

The west coast of America is truly beautiful, and travelling this region by car is the best way to see it. Vegas’ surrounding area is a beautiful smorgasbord of different natural wonders, such as the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and Red Rock Valley. These otherworldly landscapes are spectacular and will make a lasting impression – pack your bags and prepare for an unforgettable drive through the desert. The nearby Phoenix is a very cool city, and the Tonfa Forest offers a landscape straight out of western film. Alternatively, head west to the Californian coast and Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.
