We know all the rage right now is the Taco Bell Weddings, the popular weddings that take place in Vegas (as of late). The Las Vegas Chapels also bring in a lot of the run and gun Vegas weddings as well. However, we will share our favorite locations in Las Vegas to get married. One of which, Calico Basin, is perfect for outdoor weddings.
Red Rock Canyon is home to one of the most beautiful places in the Vegas Valley, Calico Basin. Off the beaten path, it’s so removed from the Las Vegas Strip that you won’t even remember you are in the same state, yet it’s only a 20-30 minute drive away.
This ideal photo destination can accommodate parties of up to 50 people, including children and pets, and any of those who require wheelchair accessibility. Ease of movement for those not physically able is provided by the fully functional boardwalk. Additionally, use this boardwalk as an aisle of which to walk down to meet an awaiting spouse. All elements of this locale combine to create the perfect destination for an intimate affair and will add the perfect touch to any ceremony.
Tucked away in the Red Springs area of Red Rock Canyon, Calico Basin is a location that will provide a beautiful and charming home for your Las Vegas outdoor wedding year-round. However, spring and fall months have the best weather conditions. During the summer, averages are around 103 degrees and in the winter, highs hover around 59 degrees. For this reason, clothing appropriate for the weather are best options. Also keep in mind that no matter the time of year, this is Las Vegas and winds are always a possibility.
To Keep You and Your Guests Happy:
For your guests, although the world-famous Las Vegas strip is accessible, at just 12 miles away, there are a variety of amenities that may be accessed within minutes. In addition, Red Rock Hotel and Casino is just minutes away and provides all of the conveniences that may be needed, including hotel rooms that start at just $95 per night.

Downtown Summerlin will also provide you with a variety of shopping, entertainment, and dining possibilities. Within the area are all of the major department stores, Dave & Busters (a dining and video arcade experience great for kids and families), and an outdoor ice skating rink (only available for enjoyment during the winter holiday times).
Also nearby are several other establishments that will provide you with anything you may need, including grocery and drug stores, banking options, coffee shops, and several cafes and restaurants at which you may dine for under $50.
These low-cost but delicious options include
John Cutter Grill and Tavern
Toros Mexican Kitchen and Tavern
For the adventurous, are several hiking and biking trails in and around Calico Basin. There are also opportunities for rock climbing.
Other aspects to keep in mind include the fact that there is little to no cell phone reception. To avoid delays, a caravan or communicating to your guests the exact location is suggested. Also lacking is drinking water availability. Water and other preferred beverages should be brought along with you. However, for your convenience, picnic tables, fire grills, trash cans, and restrooms are in the parking area.
As an added bonus we will take care of getting any needed permits required to host your affair to remember at this beautiful outdoor wedding location that is Calico Basin.
