Las Vegas Trip Itineraries

Ten Great Places For Adventure in Las Vegas

Destination(s): Las Vegas

Las Vegas knows how to get your heart pounding, and not just in the casino. If you're in the mood for an adrenaline rush, you've got several options. You can definitely find adventure on one of the Strip's thrill rides--you'll find rollercoasters, controlled free-falls, and other things that spin, dangle, or drop you. Just off the Strip, you can try skydiving indoors, or racing go-carts at 50 m.p.h. If you want to drive really fast, you can learn how to drive a race car or take an ATV tour through remote areas of the Mojave Desert--but if you like your adventure a little quieter, go rock climbing, hike, or rent a boat. Mountain bikers can experience an "Epic" trail ride, but if you'd rather zoom through the air, try a zipline. ~Photo courtesy of Rob Lucas at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ultrarob/3947225828 ~ read more about Ten Great Places For Adventure in Las Vegas

Red Rock Canyon NCA is one of the finest rock climbing areas in the world. The main type of rock found here is Aztec (or Navajo) sandstone, formed years ago through the natural cementing of ancient sand dunes. The rock at Calico's 1& 2, and Sandstone Quarry are the focus of sport climbing. The rock of the main escarpment possesses a greater cementing factor and is considered to be a good quality sandstone. The black or varnished rock is generally considered to be the hardest. Keep in mind however, at its best, it is still sandstone. Routes in the Red Rock Canyon NCA are rated via the Yosemite Decimal System. All class V routes (those involving the use of protection) in Red Rock Canyon NCA range from 5.0 (easiest) to 5.14 (most difficult). read more about Red Rock Canyon Climbing
