With so many nearby things to do, Las Vegas is the ideal starting point for many memorable adventures. From nearly a dozen State and National Parks in Nevada alone, to hundreds of fun, educational, entertaining and fascinating side trips for the whole family, you might want to consider adding an extra day or two to your vacation just to see some of the sights! With our guide there's no wondering what to do in Vegas!

Las Vegas' centralized location makes it a great stepping off point to Southern Utah (Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park), Arizona (Lake Havasu and Grand Canyon) and even Southern California (Death Valley, Universal Studios and Disneyland). Most of which are a mere day's drive away, returning in time for an evening show or dinner.

While many Las Vegas attractions are within walking distance of the Strip and Downtown, far more are an hour or more drive away. While the use of a rental car is suggested to enjoy the attractions at your own pace and interest level, there are also inexpensive, organized tours from Las Vegas by professional tour guides to the most popular attractions. Where applicable we've also included links to these services.
