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.

About to go on holiday in Las Vegas? As fun as clubbing and hitting the casino floor can be, there is so much more that one can do for activities in the adult entertainment capital of the world.

In this article, we will share a few alternative suggestions that will make your trip to Vegas one of the greatest getaways you’ve done in a long while.

1) Go on a helicopter tour

As fabulous as Las Vegas can be from The Strip, it is even more awe-inspiring from thousands of feet above it.

There are many outfits that will take you on a tour above this city’s glittering lights via helicopter – be sure to go close to dusk, as the sky near sunset will provide an unforgettable backdrop, and the encroaching darkness allows the ambitious displays to truly stand out from the emptiness of the surrounding desert.

There are also helicopter tours that will allow you see one of America’s most amazing natural treasures from the most amazing vantage point possible.

When you opt to see the Grand Canyon from the air, not only will you get views that will stay with you for a lifetime, but you’ll skip out on the arduous bus tours that spend half the day just getting there and back to Vegas.

2) Hike or climb in Red Rock Canyon

If you are an active person and you want to work off the excess calories that you’ll inevitably consume at the buffets, know that Red Rock Canyon is situated a mere 15 miles from downtown Las Vegas.

Containing the rusty red sandstone cliffs and bluffs that the American Southwest is known for, it is a gorgeous place to go for a hike and get some fresh air.

Avid rock climbers will want to join the locals at some of the best natural walls for hundreds of miles around. Some routes rise for hundreds of feet, giving hardcore scramblers plenty of challenges to take on.

Just be sure to bring plenty of water, as heat is a concern for a decent chunk of the year, and dry air predominates in this arid corner of the United States.

3) See a live show

Apart from gaming, live stage shows are the biggest form of entertainment that Vegas has to offer its visitors.

From the Blue Man Group to Celine Dion, Cirque de Soleil to Penn & Teller, the options for the shows you can witness can be overwhelming.

Performance art, legendary singers, magicians and mentalists: whatever you choose, prepare to be blown away by the talent that you will be about to witness.
