Winter in Las Vegas with Valley of Fire State Park Visit

Winter in Las Vegas with Valley of Fire State Park Visit

After three months of non-stop travel from Florida to Nevada in our self-converted van with lots of exploring in Colorado, Utah we welcomed a winter-break for work in Las Vegas and enjoyed the change in pace and environment. After living in a small van for three months, it was great to stay at a studio apartment with a real kitchen, a toilet and hot water! Which is a luxury when living minimally in a van.

Spending the winter in Las Vegas is a fun way to enjoy mild temperatures, plenty of sunshine and lots of great outdoor activities from hiking, running, biking, swimming, kayaking, outdoor workouts and more. On our time off we loved camping and hiking at Valley of Fire State Park, trail running in the Las Vegas hills and surrounding desert and wild camping at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

These were our favorite running and hiking trails in and around Las Vegas:
