Ribbon of Red in a rock formation at Red Rock Canyon, Summerlin, Nevada 2007 Las Vegas is so much more than the neon of the Strip or Fremont street. I will admit it took until my third trip to realize this. Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area is located a short drive from the Las Vegas Strip in Summerlin, Nevada. It’s more or less Red Rock Casino’s neighbor ! The park offers many, many photo ops as well as hiking, rock climbing, bird watching, biking and so much more.
