When you get tired of gambling or you just want to do something different, plan a day trip to Death Valley from Las Vegas.
Death Valley is a little over two hour drive from Las Vegas covering over 3000 acres. It is the largest national park south of Alaska. It’s a very hot and dry environment, with extreme temperatures in the summer. Death Valley receives less than two inches of rainfall annually except for the year of 2016 which had a higher than usual amount.
If you plan on doing this trip, make sure to have a full tank. There are a couple of gas stations in the park, but prices are much higher than outside the park. Bring food and water as there are limited places to purchase food. Plan your day and enjoy spending time in this amazing place.
If you hike Badlands loop, make sure you take plenty of water.
Rhyolite is a ghost town in the eastern edge of Death Valley in the state of Nevada. The town began in the early 1900s as a mining camp during the gold rush. The mine closed in 1911 and by 1920 it became a ghost town, a tourist attraction and a setting for motion pictures.
