Dolan Springs Arizona and authentic Wild-West village near Las Vegas. On the way to the Grand Canyon West going by bus, you pass through it. This small village is also gate to many South Arizona tourist attractions.
In the image above, you can see a tour bus coming from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon West rim. It is worth taking one of these guided tours, because they will bring you to many other attractions on the way. Click to learn more!
Dolan Springs is actually half way between Hoover Dam, and Kingman Arizona.
If you are driving from Las Vegas, on Hwy 93, when you see the sign for Grand Canyon, you turn left and you are almost there :)
The village is a great stop for gas, a cup of coffee and some souvenirs.
It is worth it a quick look around :) Here is a beautiful wild west mural I’ve seen across from the coffee shop above
Near Las Vegas tourism
For a serious traveler, Las Vegas is a good base for visiting a lot of attractions nearby in Arizona, Nevada and California. We visited quite a few of them, and one I made a post of, was the London Bridge at Lake Havasu.
- Others were: Chloride, Kingman, Oatman and more of Route 66. I still have to write about those. We even went as far as Death Valley :)
In Nevada, the closest places to visit are the Lake Mead and Hover Dam.
However, if you don’t have enough time to drive or take a tour by bus, you can also do it faster by helicopter. There are several day trips excursions from Las Vegas for everybody!
Stay tuned for more:)
