Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around.

A Right Time to Get to Famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Watch our road trip to Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign and The Las Vegas Strip

When I was searching on google map about the famous Las Vegas welcome sign there's something in the reviews that kind of screaming "WAIT IN LINE" and "HOT" so my family and I decided to get up early (not too early) but earlier than normal to drive there the right time. We left our motorhome before 8am and arrived at the famous welcome sign in less than 20 minutes drive. It was a pleasant drive, the traffic was very light. 

We were so happy when we arrived at the welcome sign. There was only one family ahead of us and there was no line. Yep, our getting up early paid off. We took all the time we wanted without feeling  rushed. 

After we took our pictures, we headed back towards the Strip using Las Vegas Blvd. The traffic was also light even with the road construction. It was a great morning driving around Las Vegas.
