This trip of our to Las Vegas served as our first pit stop for our trip to the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas is about 4 hours drive to the east of Los Angeles and we decided to book a hotel for us at the Hilton Grand Vacations Hotel. In this trip, my bro Mark and his wife Joanne and son Nathan and my mother came with me. My brother drove our rented car all the way to Las Vegas. The drive to Las Vegas was long through the deserts of Nevada which I found very beautiful and scenic.
