Tours from Las Vegas Strip
There are, as mentioned, a lot of other things to do in Las Vegas than gambling. Take a break from the glittering Las Vegas Strip and have an adventure with a tour.
Las Vegas has amazing surroundings. In the north, we recommend Valley of Fire, especially for those interested in hiking. The most famous natural experience around Las Vegas, is of course the Grand Canyon. Take a tour either with helicopter, bus or car. If you want to take a bus tour or drive to Grand Canyon and still want to fly in a helicopter, do a night helicopter tour over the Las Vegas Strip. That is a very special sight. Are you renting a car to go to Grand Canyon, consider renting a sports car.
Our favourite tour is to rent a car and drive to Lake Mead and rent a powerboat equipped with water skiis and wakeboard. During our visit to Las Vegas in the summer of 2010 we even did this excursion twice. The warm climate and calm waters that a sea can offer, makes Lake Mead perfect for water activities.
Try a firearm
Another fun tour is the Las Vegas Gun Store, where you can try out different fire arms. All customers are provided with a personal range instructor and no previous experience is required.
