Memorial Day is the official start to grilling season and sunny skies -- and in Las Vegas you can head to the great outdoors for both! After a fun-filled evening in Las Vegas, plan some day trips to the national parks surrounding the city. There's something for the adventurous and the not-so-adventurous and it's all just miles from the center of town; so pack up the station wagon - Clark Griswold style - and head to Vegas!
Head due West and spend the day at Red Rock National Conservation Area. Just minutes from Red Rock Resort, The Suncoast, and JW Marriott, this outdoor wonderland spans 197,000 acres, has a 13-mile scenic loop drive, and over 30 miles of hiking trails. Picnic and grilling areas, cycling, hiking, climbing and horseback riding are available throughout! Further North, Mt. Charleston Recreation Area is a hiker's paradise with towering pine trees, rivers, waterfalls, trails and the scenic Resort at Mt. Charleston and Mt. Charleston Lodge.

If you're staying in the Southern part of the valley, near The M Resort, Fiesta Henderson, or the South Point Resort, it's just a short drive to the spectacular Hoover Dam. This national historic spot offers a dramatic view of the Colorado River, Lake Mead Recreation Area and the new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, towering 900ft above the canyon floor! It opens in November for driving traffic, but the view today of construction is fascinating in itself.
Enjoy a relaxing day boating at Lake Mead or spend a tranquil day at the lakeside beach at Lake Las Vegas.

The Crown Theater at the Rio Hotel is hot and the Rio Hotel plans to add some fuel to the fire. Nightclub industry veteran Darin Feinstein plans to open the Crown Theater and Nightclub at the Rio's former 3121 space. The venue will provide a mix of live concerts and nightlife events throughout the year.
This space has been home to top entertainers including a brief run by the legendary Prince. Although the showroom seats more than 900 people, the "in-the-round" design allows for intimate performances by A-list stars and up-and-coming artists. After the concerts, the space turns into a nightclub featuring themed nights focused on various styles of music. Every seat in the theater has a panoramic view of the stage and VIP seating is abundant around each level and features low-slung, modern furnishings.
If you're looking for a hot night out, check out the new Crown Theater when it opens later this year. In the meantime, check out all of the hottest clubs in Las Vegas. And don't forget, the nightclub scene takes over daytime Vegas as the hottest pool parties rock their way through summer!
