One of the most dramatic scene changes in Las Vegas takes place on the road 35 miles northwest of the Strip on Mount Charleston, which rises to an elevation of nearly 12,000 feet. It’s fun in all seasons but is a major refresher in summer, since it can shave 20 degrees or more off the sweltering desert heat. Check out Mary Jane Falls or the dramatic 100-foot waterfall at Big Falls, and hang out on the deck at Mount Charleston Lodge after your adventure.
