5 Adventures In Vegas That Get You Out Of The Casinos

If the bright lights and slot machines of Vegas are not your thing (or just need a break from them), there are some great outdoor sights to check out to refresh your batteries!


Grand Canyon

Located four hours from Vegas, this iconic landmark is visited by people all over the world. There are two entry ways into the park (North and South Rim). The park is 277 miles, so plan to arrive early to spend the entire day soaking in the amazing natural wonder.


Hike The Colorado River

Head out to Laughlin (hour and a half south of Vegas). Here you can start your exploration of 9 miles of trails. If walking is not your thing, you can bike or take horses on the trail, too! There are also places you can rent cabins or RV campsites. The park also offers a water taxi that will take you back and forth across the river.


Winter Fun In Lee Canyon

Yes, there is snow in the Southwest! Less than an hours drive from Vegas, break out the boards and hit the slopes in Lee Canyon. 3 lifts and 26 trails, the average snowfall is nearly 130 inches. 195 acres of ridable terrain, and in the summertime, hikers take advantage of the chair lifts for scenic rides and other activites.


Dune Buggies

Rent a dune buggie or ATV and head out to the desert from some serious off road adventure.


Kayak On Lake Mead

Start your water journey at Willow Beach Marina. You can rent kayaks, paddleboards or motorized watercrafts. The lake offers emerald green waters in Black Canyon and beautiful natural landscape.
