When people think about Las Vegas, most immediately envision the vivid lights of the Strip, the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, and the mega resorts.
But there is so much more to do in the destination, especially in the great outdoors. From hiking in scenic canyons and wading down rivers to zooming through the desert by jeep or zipline, your next exhilarating adventure awaits.
The Lake Mead National Recreation Area is filled with boating, jet skiing, rafting, and other water activities.
Jump right in with water skiing, tubing, wakeboarding or wake surfing at Vegas Water Sports, where you’ll enjoy views of the natural beauty of Lake Mead.
Go Off Road
Grab your hiking boots and head to Red Rock Canyon and explore more than 30 miles of hiking trails. Head a bit further north and you’ll find camping, picnicking sites, and hiking opportunities at Valley of Fire State Park.
Quelch your need for speed with some off-roading adventure. Load up into a one-of-a-kind rugged, yet luxurious, all-terrain vehicle and go for a wild ride through desert landscape areas inaccessible to most on a Pink Jeep Tour.
Or see Las Vegas like never before with Sun Buggy Fun Rentals, offering one of the largest fleets of custom, off-road vehicles including dune buggies, ATVs, and UTVs. If you want to stay on the road but still go fast, hit up Exotics Racing, Dream Racing or SPEEDVEGAS to get behind the wheel of exotic race cars.
One of the coolest and most Only Vegas experiences you can have is at Dig This Las Vegas. The full-size bulldozer and excavator playground allows you to move mountains of dirt, stack monster rocks, dig huge holes, crush cars, and much more. It even has a kid’s dig session where the little ones can get into the action.
Fly Like an Eagle
Get a bird’s-eye view of Las Vegas in the coolest way possible – on a zipline. Earn your bragging rights when you fly along the Strip at 35 mph on the Fly LINQ Zipline at The LINQ Promenade + Experience. You can choose to take off while seated, lying flat, or backwards, and you can fly with up to 10 of your friends at the same time.
Experience a different side of Las Vegas and get outside during your next visit! Don’t forget to be mindful of your surroundings and thoughtful of others: keeping your distance, wearing mandatory face coverings, and washing your hands. Be #VegasSmart.
