Las Vegas is one of the most fun and glamorous trips to take in the United States. The Vegas Strip, Fremont Street, the night time entertainment, the daytime adventures, not to mention the Grand Canyon and other day trips can easily be made. Luxury and glamour go hand in hand so why not travel in luxury with an RV and hit all of the best stops along the way. Viva Las Vegas!
Our favourite spots:
Circus Circus RV Park
If you’re looking to park your RV right on the Las Vegas strip, the iconic Circus Circus is must stop for at least a night or two. You’ll be able to experience all that the strip has to offer without having to drive 20 minutes to see the sights.
After you’ve walked the strip, went to a show or two, dined like a king and tried out a roller coaster, it might be time to escape to the road and check out a few of the National Parks and monuments that surround Las Vegas.
Zion National Park
the Grotto, Weeping Rock, Big Bend, and massive cliffs of pink and red that will be sure to enchant. Zion National Park has it all.
Cedar Banks National Monument
At 10,000 feet in elevation, Cedars Breaks National Monument is a hidden gem. The wildflowers are wondrous and you can find trees estimated at over 1500 years old.
Bryce Canyon isn’t as grand as the Grand Canyon, however, the forest of stone is a unique sight all on its own. After a day of exploring it’s been put to a vote that a burger never tasted so good.
And of course, the Grand Canyon. 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep the Grand Canyon overwhelms with its unique combinations of colour and shear size.

Things to do Around Las Vegas
Las Vegas Nevada is known for its bright lights and its neon signs. What happens to those signs when they are no longer being used? Well, they go to the Neon Boneyard of course. This 3 acre lot contains over 150 decommissioned signs from Las Vegas’ past, including the original Aladdin’s lamp from Aladdin’s Casino and the original sign from the Golden Nugget. Tours are available daily and try to go at night so that you can see some of the old signs lit up.
Fly GeyserAtlas Obscura says it best the Fly Geyser is a collision of human error and natural geothermic pressure resulted in the rainbow-coloured geologic wonder. Off of State Route 34 outside of Gerlach Nevada nearly 100 years ago a well was drilled looking to provide water for farming. The water that appeared from this well was nearly 200 degrees, obviously not suitable for farming this well was just left. What formed was a 12 foot cone of calcium carbonate. The red and green colouring of the geyser is caused by thermophilic algae making these mineral structures breathtaking. With a Nevada RV rental you can drive out to the geyser.
Area 51 is located in Lincoln County Nevada. This famous top secret military testing facility is rumoured to be home to aliens and their spaceships. You will not get into Area 51, the closest you will get is to a no trespassing sign. It would make a great story though it you and your Nevada RV rental had to be escorted from the area by armed guards. (USA RV Rentals in no way endorses this behaviour:)
Rhyolite Ghost Town
Rhyolite Ghost Town is located 6 miles west of Beatty Nevada. In 1905 in the middle of a gold rush this town grew to 1500 people. The town boasted a 3 story building, a school for 250 children, hotels, stores and even an ice plant. 11 years later the lights were turned out and now the only things left were the ruins of a few old buildings.
Forest of the Last Church
Visit the International Forest of the Last Church. Over 40 automobiles, including cars, trucks and vans are scattered around stacked on one another and balanced on their ends. These vehicles have been painted by two artists whose vision was to create a place for people to get out and explore while speaking out against organized religion. You can drive out to Goldfield Nevada in your RV and take your time looking at this exhibit.
How about a stop at the Bristlecone Pines of the Great Basin. These trees are the oldest in the world. One tree named Methuselah is almost 5000 years old.
There is so much to see and do in Nevada. So rent an RV and let your next Nevada road trip begin.
