There are lots of things to do in Las Vegas on the Strip, but what about off the Strip? Well, by trekking just a little ways off the Strip, there is still plenty to do and see, from some great places to commune with nature to museums and shopping!
· Nature: The area around Las Vegas offers some great hiking and spectacular views. Located about 20 minutes off the Strip, Red Rock Canyon has a wide selection of hikes and trails of varying difficulty. For something a bit easier on the knees, be sure to visit the Springs Preserve and explore the nature exhibits, botanical gardens, live animal shows, and more.
· Museums: The Pinball Hall of Fame is a must for anyone who likes vintage video games and pinball machines. Learn about Vegas’ history from pre-historic to modern times at the Clark County Museum.
· Sports: Las Vegas doesn’t have any major league sports teams, but it is home to the Las Vegas 51s, a minor league affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays! The 51s play at Cashman Field north of the Fremont Street Experience.
· Shopping: There is some great shopping on the Strip, but for the more budget conscious, the Primm Outlets are a great option. Located on the California/Nevada border, the Outlets operate a daily shuttle to-and-from the Strip.For more suggestions on what to do and see in the area around Las Vegas, be sure to visit TripAdvisor.
