Death Valley - A Top Vacation Destination!
Death Valley Vacations from Las Vegas
Death Valley - About a 2.5 hour drive northwest from Las Vegas, this vast National Park is also one of the most famous places in the world! The lowest elevation in the western hemisphere is located at Badwater in Death Valley.
Attractions - From Vegas, you will be likely be entering Death Valley from the southeast. In this area, depending on how much time you wish to spend traveling, you can visit the Badwater salt flats, Zabriskie Point, Furnace Creek, and Artists Palette.
Best Bet - Don't go there in the summer, unless you want to deal with extreme heat. Your car might have problems, or you yourself might get overwhelmed by the heat. Better plan for a visit in the spring or fall when temperatures are more moderate.
- Stop off at the Furnace Creek Ranch for a drink, or visit the Borax Museum.
Zabriskie Point - A well known feature in Death Valley. Easily accessible from the road, and although a bit of a climb, the view is well worth it. Take lots of pictures.
Badwater - Another one of the grim names associated with Death Valley. The salt flats here are a great attraction. To get a better sense of Death Valley, check out some great pictures above!
