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.
