Las Vegas is known for its city lights and busy streets, but there’s more to do in the city than “live it up.” If you’re looking for adventure, Las Vegas has a lot to offer. From giant canyons to scorching deserts, there’s plenty for outdoor junkies to experience. You’ll be able to relax in your luxurious Las Vegas hotel, but when you feel like getting out in the open, you’ll have no trouble finding something exciting to do. Here are a few ideas to get started with.
Grand Canyon West Rim Tour with Skywalk is a twelve hour tour that takes you to the Hoover Dam, through the Joshua Tree Forest, and across the Hualapai Indian Nation. You’ll spend three and a half hours admiring the Grand Canyon with a scenic drive and then a stop at Eagle Point where you’ll be able to go out on the Skywalk, a glass platform that gives you a full-circle view of the canyon. Your breakfast and dinner is also included!
For this desert tour, your first stop is the ghost town of Rhyolite, and then it’s on to the Death Valley Photo Sightseeing Tour. You’ll be taken 5,475 feet above sea level at Dante’s View and 282 feet below at Badwater where the landscape changes color. There are mountains, canyons, volcanic craters, and salt pinnacles. Bring your camera and lots of water, there will be a lot of beauty and a lot of heat.
On the Colorado River Raft Tour you’ll find yourself at the base of the Hoover Dam as you’re sent off on your float down the Colorado River. There are no rapids, so you’ll be able to take in the natural surroundings in an unhindered way. Your tour guide will give details of the wildlife all around. Lunch is included on a nice, calm beach. What a great way to see the Hoover Dam and everything around it.
