Off the Beaten Path: Unique Southwestern Road Trips

With the end of the school year looming, it’s time to start planning some summer fun! As a Las Vegan, you may be ready to venture away from The Strip, and you’ve probably already checked out the Hoover Dam and even the Grand Canyon. So, where can you go for an interesting trip, without having to hop a plane?

Las Vegas Weekly rounded up a list of interesting destinations, including the spectacularly colored Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert; the Lyon County Museum, which displays an array of intricate objects made from human hair; and the wonders of the marble Lehman Caves at Great Basin National Park.
