5 Things To Do While In Vegas

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas? Gambling, cheap buffets, and Elvis impersonators? While all three of those are true to some extent, there’s actually so much more to see and do in Sin City, and it’s not just confined to the strip or downtown areas. Here are 5 things you can do while in Vegas that don’t involve gambling.

Things To Do In Vegas

1. Pickleball at The Bend

Close to Las Vegas, where to go, Vegas things to do. You may have heard of paddle ball or badminton; what you probably haven’t heard of is pickleball. The sport originated in 1965 at a YMCA camp on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and has been gaining popularity ever since. You can now catch a game at The Bend which is supposed to open in late 2022, early 2023. The Bend has signed Electric Pickle, a three-acre, 10,000 SF pickleball complex, and will have many dining establishments, from Tacos and Beer, Shang Artisan Noodle, to Freed's Dessert Shop.

3. Grand Canyon Tour

One of Vegas’s most popular attractions is Grand Canyon National Park. A quick ride outside of Las Vegas will give you a close-up view of one of America’s natural wonders. The park encompasses 1,904 square miles and is home to more than two billion-year-old fossils and other geological formations. The canyon has been carved by rivers over millions of years, giving it its distinctive shape. There are several different ways to explore Grand Canyon National Park including these antelope canyon tours from Vegas. You can also enjoy hiking, and biking on established trails or taking a scenic train ride with stops for sightseeing at points along the way. You can also take a helicopter tour that gives you an aerial perspective on what is estimated to be around 1 billion years' worth of history in just one hour!

4. Ziplining Over the Strip

There are many things to do in Vegas, but zip lining over such a bright and vibrant city is definitely at the top of our list. This aerial tour will take you over McCarran International Airport, Fremont Street Experience, The MGM Grand Garden Arena, and other points of interest along with one of America's most exciting streets. With a big enough group, you can even book a private tour so that your group is guaranteed an unforgettable time in Las Vegas!

5. Explore Red Rock

Red Rock Canyon is located about 30 minutes west of Las Vegas. There are multiple hiking trails, a visitor center, and several picnic areas that make it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. If you want to get away from some of Vegas’s casinos for an afternoon or morning, Red Rock is ideal; not only does it provide a break from gaming, but it offers some of Nevada’s most impressive views without being too far out of town. One warning: Parking can be crowded on weekends so plan your visit accordingly. Also, it’s important to know that even though Red Rock is close to Las Vegas, it’s still more than 5 miles away—which means you should have your own transportation.

With so much to see, the only thing you need to do is figure out what you’re going to spend your money on!
