which is better the valley of fire or red rock canyon ?

i have been to both a long time ago and remember I liked one much better for the colour of the rocks. We are going to have a car this trip and will go to see one of them. Please can you tell me your favorite and why? Thanks in advance.

I think the sandstone formations a VOF are simply breathtakingly stunning. They make you feel as if you are in another world. You can also combine the trip with Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. It is probably the most popular day trip out of Vegas- with reason. It is worth the extra time to get there.

RRC is closer, but not as spectacular IMHO. However, if you are looking for more challenging hiking trails or rock climbing, then choose RRC.

Here is why I like VOF:

After you have seen VOF, RRC may be a disappointment.

I preferred Valley of Fire SP but if you have time try and fit both in.

From the window of your car, VOF is best.

Underneath a pair of hiking boots, RRC is much, much better.
