exlvnightDay Trips and Points of Interest Near Las Vegas
By L. Bremner of DesertRoadTrippin

I’m heading to Las Vegas next week for a PGA Golf Expo, so I thought it would be fun to blog about points of interest near Las Vegas and things to do when visiting Las Vegas.

We plan to take the back route to Vegas through an old section of Route 66 that passes through Amboy and the infamous “Roy’s Cafe.”  The route then crosses through the Mojave National Preserve, past Kelso Sand Dunes and Depot and connects back onto the 15 north of Cima. I’ll post more about the back road to Vegas after I journey through the route.

Today’s blog will feature a resurrection of articles from our DesertUSA.com archives. Next week I’ll be blogging from Las Vegas and I’ll keep you up-to-date on our city-bound road trip while it is in progress.

Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.
