When people go to Vegas, they are often in the mood to live life on a larger scale than they would in their boring hometowns.
If you want to do the same, but have no idea where to start, this article will spout off several suggestions that will help you make the most of your time in the Adult Entertainment Capital of the World.
1) Helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon
While there is plenty to do within Vegas city limits, you are also within an easy helicopter flight of the Grand Canyon.
As one of America’s (and the world’s) most amazing natural attractions, don’t pass up the chance to go on a helicopter ride and see it from above.
While you can also see this wonder from a plane, helicopters are allowed to fly 1,000 feet below the lowest allowable altitude, making it possible to get some unreal shots of this amazing corner of the world from the air.
2) Checking out the Hoover Dam
Built and completed during the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam was a wonder of civil engineering in the early 20th century.
Even in the present day, this concrete monster still plays a crucial role in powering the millions of twinkling lights that make Las Vegas the audacious place that it is.
While it is awesome enough to look at, be sure to sign up for a tour so that you can properly understand its scale and its continuing importance in this part of America.
3) Go shoot some guns
While some may consider this suggestion to be rather controversial, there is no denying that America’s gun culture is one thing that has made it distinct from other Western nations.
With far fewer restrictions on firearms due to freedoms granted by the 2nd Amendment, those looking to shoot a firearm for the first time in their life will get the opportunity to do so at one of many gun ranges found in town.
From 9mm handguns to fully automatic machine guns, you’ll get a chance to experience the frightening power that can be unleashed by simply squeezing a trigger.
Instructors will guide you through the process, and you’ll get to keep the paper target upon which you will unleash your fury.
4) Paint the town red
Las Vegas is definitely known for its casinos, but it has also built a reputation for having one of the hottest nightlife scenes in America.
Where there’s money, you’ll find opulent lounges and nightclubs where it is all too easy to spend it; as such, there is plenty of both on The Strip.
From Hakkasan, which is known for hosting some of the world’s best DJ’s, to Light, the concept bar created by the people behind Cirque de Soleil, there is no shortage of amazing options for partying your face off after dark.
