Las Vegas Outdoors
For most people, Las Vegas stirs up images of high rolling at the slot machines or cruising the Strip under the bright lights. However, this city has become something of an outdoor enthusiast’s mecca, because of its proximity to recreational opportunities and adventures unlike anywhere else. If you’ve ever considered booking a trip to Las Vegas, but you’ve wondered if the overall ambiance is right for you, think again. With a multitude of outdoor events, Las Vegas should be at the top of your list for an unforgettable trip.
Las Vegas is an oasis in the desert, but the desert itself is home to some of the area’s best adventures. If you’re a thrill seeker who likes to get up above the crowd, ziplining is for you. Enjoy stunning views of Las Vegas, Lake Mead, ElDorado Valley and Boulder City while you soar at speeds up to 60 mph, all while safely seated in a two point harness.
Hot Air Balloon Rides
If you’re still hankering to get above the crowds of Las Vegas, but you prefer something a little slower and more relaxing, consider a ride in a hot air balloon. Most balloon tours include certified pilots who can point out some of the city’s most spectacular landmarks, all from a unique perspective that you won’t find anywhere else.
Have you ever held a real-life machine gun? In Las Vegas, you can do just that at a shooting range outside of the city. From military-grade weapons to handguns, you’re sure to find a firearm for a thrilling day of target practice.
True adventurers may not find anything more thrilling than skydiving near Las Vegas. While not for the faint of heart, it is one activity that many people would like to cross off their bucket lists. As you prepare for your jump, you can even enjoy a little sightseeing from the plane, with views of the following:
- Hoover Dam
- Red Rock Canyon
- Lake Mead
- Mr. Charleston
- Valley of Fire
- The Vegas Strip
Remember to account for time to learn all of the safety instructions designed to help you learn how to skydive.
Put the Pedal to the Metal
Las Vegas is home to one of the country’s premier speedways, and you can recreate your own professional car race of your own. Visit a race track to test your limits and see how fast you can go in a luxury vehicle.
Heavy Equipment Playground
Ever wonder what it would be like to be at the controls of some of that heavy equipment? You don’t have to imagine any longer; climb aboard a real-life excavator or bulldozer and revisit some of your childhood sandbox memories at a real-world scale. 90 minutes behind the wheel of a bulldozer or an excavator might have you contemplating a career change.
If you’re visiting Las Vegas from out of state, you may not know of its proximity to the Grand Canyon. Booking a helicopter tour to the national park is a great way to experience its magnificence truly. While you can peer into the canyon’s depths from the rim, there are parts of the canyon unreachable by foot that you’ll be able to view from the windows of an expertly piloted helicopter.
Just below the Hoover Dam, the Colorado River stretches across Nevada. On a guided rafting tour, you can experience the geological marvel that shaped many of the area’s famous canyons. Unlike walking the Strip, river rafting will grant you solitude away from the masses while providing that taste of adventure that you crave.
Have an Off-Road Adventure
Adrenaline seekers who are afraid of heights can get their fix on a wild off-road ride through the Vegas desert. With the ability to hit up to 100 miles per hour, these all-terrain racers allow you to feel the wind in your hair while speeding around award-winning dirt tracks.
