Vegas is more than just casinos, night clubs and pool parties on The Strip; it’s surrounded by some of the most fascinating attractions and breathtaking natural wonders:
Just a 25-minute drive from The Strip, Lake Las Vegas encompasses an old-world Italian lakeside village with numerous restaurants and boutiques, as well as a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus.
Go hiking or horseback riding at The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. It’s located on the west side of Las Vegas and receives more than 1.2 million visitors a year.
Lake Mead is the largest man-made lake in the Western hemisphere, and is a popular spot for boating, fishing and swimming during the warmer months.
Although Las Vegas is desert terrain, travelers can find skiing and snowboarding on Mount Charleston, less than an hour away.
