Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Explore Las Vegas' surroundings by going to Boulder City (Winged Figures of the Republic Statues & Hoover Dam). And it doesn't end there: take in breathtaking views at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in panoramic vistas at Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck, and see the interesting displays at The Mob Museum.

To see more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Las Vegas online road trip planner.

Chattanooga to Las Vegas is an approximately 8-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Pacific Standard Time is minus 3 hours. Traveling from Chattanooga in November, expect a bit warmer with lows of °F in Las Vegas. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to take a bus to Yosemite National Park.
