Check out @lostcoordinate and @marcwebster’s 48 hour escape in Las Vegas.
All the neon lights and moving traffic make it easy to capture beautiful shots of the strip.
We arrived in Las Vegas and checked into the MGM Grand. Everyone knows Vegas comes alive at nights we grabbed our camera bags and went out to explore the strip.
To get the best lighting hit Valley of Fire for sunset.
Valley of Fire
Our first morning in Vegas and what better way than to explore the Valley of Fire in a convertible. This National Park makes for a great road trip from Las Vegas and the red canyons will have you stopping for photos every mile of the highway.
Bring a bandanna to cover your face, unless you like the taste of sand haha!
Sunbuggy Fun Rentals took us on a wild adventure to explore the Mojave desert and sand dunes. Racing through the sand and getting covered in sand was a wild experience.
Bring a wide angle lens if you want to get some unique shots within the helicopter.

Our second day in Vegas was action packed, We started off with a helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon with Maverick Helicopters. Seeing one of the seven wonders of the world was an amazing experience, not to mention landing in the base of the canyon for champagne.
Our next stop for the day was Exotics Racing, where we got to drive supercars around a race track. With so many super cars to choose from it was difficult to pick just one. I drove the Ferrari F430 F1, Marc drove the Audi R8, Jay drove the Lamborghini Gallardo and Raj drove the Acura RSX.
Arrive early to beat the crowds and the heat.
Red Rock Canyon
We woke up early to shoot sunrise at Red Rock Canyon, which is only a 20 minute drive from the Las Vegas strip. This scenic drive through the park offers up views of the red sandstone canyons and the Mojave desert. Hiking through this area felt like we were on another planet.
Rent a convertible it’s totally worth the extra money and adds to the whole experience.
Driving in a convertible with your best friends on the highways outside of Vegas was a memory we won’t soon forget. The landscapes were so dramatic and provided backdrops that made us feel like we were driving through a movie set.
