Next to Red Rock, Mount Charleston has to be one of the best sight seeing places to go here in Vegas. Go there to get away and get found at the same time.

My. Charleston is a beautiful place to visit. There are cabins or a lodge for your stay or you can drive up for just a day trip. There are many trails to hike. Make sure you take lots of water if you want to make it to the summit!

After 3 hr hike, dinner at the lodge was a treat. ..loved my pizza and my husband enjoyed his fish and chips....will be back!

Went to Mount Charleston for lunch in a restaurant overlooking the Mountains. The food and surrondings were absolutely lovely. Couldn't believe we were 30mins outside of Vegas.

This is a fabulous drive out of the city for two or three hours. It's interesting to watch the scenery change and the temperature cool off. Stop at the park information center to get a map and study the terrain a bit beforehand.

We visit this location every trip and would not enjoy the vacation without a visit here. It reminds us of home.
