Enjoy the Views Near Vista Del Sol
While many of us are practicing social distancing and sheltering inside, stepping out into the fresh air is a great way to relieve some of the stress and anxiety from quarantine.
Our resort at Vista Del Sol offers some of the best views around and is the perfect place for a scenic hike, walk or run. No matter your preference, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite places to enjoy the great outdoors right outside your RV.
Greenway Park and Trails
A short drive north of the resort will land you right at the Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park and Trails. With over 9 miles of trails throughout the park, this park is ideal whether you’re looking to go on a run, walk, bike ride or even to spend the day out with your four-legged best friend.
There are three mail trails that wrap around the Colorado River as well as the Davis Dam. Be sure to take plenty of water because we’re sure you’ll want to spend the day exploring!
For a bit of a hike with a workout, look no further than the trails at Grapevine Canyon. Located about three miles off of highway 163, Grapevine Canyon offers about 3.4 miles of unpaved, all-natural terrain. The hike features waterfalls during the winter season and year-round stunning views of the Colorado River, as well as historical petroglyphs carved into the rocks. The desert heat is no joke so be sure to take extra water and sunscreen.
If you’re looking for a beautiful sunset stroll, look no further than the Laughlin Riverwalk. Located just across the Arizona-Nevada border, the Riverwalk is a paved path right along the Laughlin Strip. While many of the businesses and casinos are currently closed, it is worth the walk to enjoy the city and the river all at once. Plus, nothing can beat the view of a sunset against the mountains.
It’s important to stay sane and to get some fresh air during this pandemic, just remember to do it safely. Stay at least six feet away from other walkers and travel with hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Remember when you’re out to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. And don’t forget your water and sunscreen For more information on the CDC’s recommendation to navigating the public area safely, visit https://cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html.
