LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
There’s more to Las Vegas than casinos, shows, and the bright lights of the Strip.
A great accommodation choice for this area &
a veritable oasis in the middle of the Mojave Desert.
What do you do when you’ve exhausted your checklist of “must-see” Vegas hot spots? You’ve stood in front of the Bellagio Fountain Show more times than you care to admit and to be frank, the bright lights of “Sin City” are starting to disrupt your sleep schedule. Well, we’ve gathered some of our favorite things to do in Vegas that don’t actually involve stepping foot on The Strip. I present to you: Vegas: Off the Beaten Path.
If you’ve had your fill of all-you-can-eat breakfast buffets and want to start your day with a bit of home-style cooking, look no further than Rise & Shine
. This self-dubbed “steak and eggs place” is ideal to fuel up and send you off ready to face the day! And I did just that! How can you go to a steak and eggs place and not get their signature item? With that in mind, I tucked into a heaping plateful of eggs topped with sliced steak and a béarnaise sauce. Delicious!
One of my favorite things to do on any vacation is carve out some dedicated time to reconnect with nature. Whether it be a morning walk or a bike ride through a park, it’s always nice to move about in a new place. Since different locales often boast features unique to them, seeing the natural sites of a new destination is great way to explore even more of a particular location. Because Las Vegas is situated within Nevada’s Mojave Desert, finding an outdoor adventure that would highlight the beauty of the desert was an absolute must for me. It was not hard to identify the place I would venture to for my outdoor excursion: The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
is situated about a 30-minute drive West of Las Vegas.
Did you know: The Mojave Desert is 48,000 square miles large and touches parts of California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah!
