MOST PEOPLE ATTRIBUTE the Vegas experience with casinos, shopping and night life on the strip. This reputation overshadows Las Vegas’s prime location and proximity to some of the most amazing National Parks in the country. Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Lake Mead and Death Valley are all awesome day trips to take from Vegas.

The salt flats in Badwater Basin are 282 feet below sea level. In the summer it is extremely hot walking out on the salt flats. It was about 115 degrees when I was there. Bring lots of water! The salt crystals are really a cool sight to see. If you want you can taste the salt. #nationalpark
