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

Golf isn’t my thing, but it is fun to do with hubby and it’s so beautiful being out on the golf course it’s hard to not do it at least one morning on our vacations.

Did you know you can drive out to Boulder Creek and try out your golf swing?

 Here I am at Boulder Creek on a beautiful July morning. I have no idea what I’m doing, but it’s fun anyway!


 Don’t get me wrong, I love the dingdingding of machines and the whooping and laughter of craps tables, but part of why we love Vegas is because we enjoy the other things.

One quiet place on the strip in the gardens at the Flamingo. Waterfalls, fish, birds, and there a delicious pizza place right there too. It’s wonderful to find a quiet place on the st…
