Las Vegas’ Seven Magic Mountains

Vehicle provided by Kia

While on our road trip from Orange County to Las Vegas, one stop that we couldn’t miss was seeing Seven Magic Mountains created by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. Pictures of the colorful rock towers have been all over Instagram this summer, but there is nothing better than seeing the artwork in real life.

We had made many stops along our way to Las Vegas and didn’t arrive at the Seven Magic Mountains until dusk. It ended up being the perfect time to visit the popular Las Vegas desert hot spot because there were hardly any visitors there.

The art sculptures are located off a paved road just a couple of miles outside of Las Vegas. My cellular service was not giving me a good signal in the desert, so I used the GPS on our Kia Sorento to quickly find the parking lot in front of the Seven Magic Mountains.

I parked the Sorento in the dirt parking lot, and as the kids got out of the car, they were in awe of the beauty of the art. We took a few minutes to admire the art sculpture before walking down the dirt path to get an up close look.

My two teenagers took a million selfies together, and I captured some fun photos too. The Seven Magic Mountains are bright, colorful and cheerful. It was one of our favorite stops on road trip.

The Seven Magic Mountains is only going to be here for a short time, making it more important than ever to plan a weekend getaway to Vegas if you want a chance to see the beautiful desert art exhibit. I recommend going early in the morning or at dusk so that you can capture photos of your kids in front of the colorful towers without a lot of people in the background.

Seven Magic Mountains is located at S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89054. I recommend using your GPS to easily find the road off the freeway that leads to the parking lot. The exhibit opened in May 2016 and will only be here for two years. Don’t miss your opportunity to see this beautiful public art installation.
