For a fabulous Las Vegas experience, take a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. Comprising over 1.2 million acres of land, the Grand Canyon is over a mile in depth. Most companies offer helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon including breakfast or lunch near the bottom of the canyon. Don't forget to tip your helicopter pilot for his or her services.
Take a hiatus from the bustling Las Vegas and set off for a day of fun at Lake Mead. Just 30 miles from Las Vegas in the city of Boulder, NV, Lake Mead is the 16th largest man-made lake, and perfect for all types of outdoor activities. Rent a jet ski or boat and set off toward the center of the lake, or spend your day relaxing while kayaking or fishing. In order to take in the full experience of the outdoors, spend the night camping under the Mojave Desert or spend a few hours bicycling around the lake. Cash may be required for parking, and a credit card is likely required to rent equipment.
Sometimes the best way to experience the hot weather of Las Vegas is to spend your afternoon aside one of the famous pools in the beautiful city. Each hotel puts a unique twist on their pool atmosphere, but almost every pool in Las Vegas's most famous hotels is breathtaking. Ceaser's Palace, Bally's Las Vegas, and MGM Grand all have pools that are heated between 75 and 80 degrees all year round.
