We spent a week camping right on the shores of Lake Mead. We couldn’t have asked for a more serene and naturally beautiful setting.
Don’t miss the opportunity to get out on the water and do one of the Lake Mead cruises. If you have your own boat that works well too! If you don’t, find a friend, rent one, or join a 90-minute Desert Princess Cruise, a paddle wheeler boat.
You can easily go from Las Vegas to Hoover Dam as a day trip, join a tour, or, if you are staying on Lake Mead, it’s right in your neck of the woods.
I loved looking out for miles over the Muddy Mountains, the Bowl of Fire, and the road we just drove along.
With a gain in elevation in one section of about 500 feet in less than a mile, it’s not going to be an easy bike ride, but I’m sure you’ll have fun.
