You will set out east and travel through dramatic desert scenery to the famous Death Valley, the hottest, driest, lowest place in North America. This is a starkly beautiful wilderness with sand dunes, canyons, parched salt flats, volcanic craters and multicoloured rock formations.
Stop for lunch at the outlet mall at the Nevada State Line (payable direct). You will have 90 minutes at the mall to enjoy your lunch and browse the stores, which are filled with upscale brands like Levi’s, Nike, Reebok, Timberland and many more.
After leaving the mall you will drive on across the barren expanse of the great Mojave Desert. Look out for local wildlife, including jack rabbits, road-runners and big-horn sheep, as well as the feral mustangs and burros.
You will arrive in Las Vegas in the late afternoon (around 5:30pm). In the evening you will take a 4-hour tour of the legendary Strip to see some of the incredible hotels and fantasies that have been created in the middle of the desert. Some of the highlights include:
• Caesars Palace
• Paris Las Vegas
• Mandalay Bay
• New York
• Treasure Island
You will spend the night at Harrah's Hotel (subject to change).
After a leisurely breakfast, you will leave Las Vegas and head across the desert to the mighty Hoover Dam. Towering 725 feet above the powerful Colorado River, it is a spectacular feat of engineering. Rated as one of the man-made wonders of the world, it is noteworthy not only for its immense size and complex design but also for the huge technical challenges that were overcome during construction.
You will also see the blue waters of lovely Lake Mead. It is the largest man-made lake and reservoir in the US and a life-line to the settlements of the southwest.
You will spend around 3 hours at the Dam enjoying the standard tour and visitor centre. Afterwards, you will head west and stop for one last chance at the slot machines on the State Line as you cross back into California.
