Death Valley National Park
Welcome to the lowest and driest place in North America and the hottest place on earth…
But Death Valley is so much more than a vast and forbidding desert.
It’s a diverse landscape of extremes and fascinating one-of-a-kind places that are guaranteed to excite all of your senses and to enchant the explorer, biologist, geologist, anthropologist, astronomer, and historian in you. Let’s go!
Getting to Death Valley from Las Vegas
The most convenient way to get to there is to fly into Las Vegas, Nevada then drive the remaining 150 miles or so to California–a mini adventure itself full of surprises and one-of-a-kind places.
