We started with breakfast at Hexx Kitchen + Bar and stopped by the Hexx store to pick up some goodies for the boys. Then grabbed a Lyft to the airport to rent a car.. there is such a sense of freedom with a car. We drove 30 minutes out of the city to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.. we walked around for a bit then drove around the 40 minute scenic loop. There were several hikes and I wish we had thought to pack better shoes.
We could have spent hours exploring this place.. next we headed to the Hoover Dam and the Mike O’Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Why the bridge? It gives you a great view of the Hoover Dam below and it's where the borders of Nevada and Arizona meet..
I have never been in two states at once.. have you? For the movie buff this is where Salma Hayek and Mathew Perry had their baby in Fools Rush In :)
We started to head back to Vegas just before dark but instead of the Strip we drove to Freemont Street in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas
We had dinner at Nacho Daddy and said our goodbyes to the city before heading to the airport.
