It's not exactly on the way.
VOF is north and east of LV. You'll be coming from the south. You could hug the shore of Lake Mead after you cross the Hoover Dam and work your way up to VOF. But unless you leave GCNP early in the morning it will be a long day on the road. And to be honest, after GCNP, VOF will be less than spectacular.
Valley of Fire is not on the way,but if you have not seen the Colorado River up close,you may want to take a side trip to Willow Beach,AZ,which is about 15 miles south of Hoover Dam off Hwy 93.If you did not do a tour from Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry,this is the second best option.You can rent a boat and go up river and see a bunch of historic remains from the days of the construction of the dam.The catwalks are pretty amazing.
