Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

Leaving the Airport using Ride Share:

Use Uber or Lyft. The only people who say use a cab are people who are not confident enough to try using something new (although Uber and Lyft are not that new anymore). Coming to Las Vegas and having to take a cab was the worst experience for my husband and I for years. We tried city busses, shuttles, and renting our own car jus…
