Top Tours And Diversions To Consider While In Vegas

shutterstock_125691077One doesn’t have to have a car while on a Vegas visit. There is plenty to do and see walking the Strip or strolling the Fremont Experience downtown. However, some great adventures do require transportation and some time. There are many great tours offered. Most of the tour services will pick you up right at your hotel and return you after your tour.

Let’s talk about some of the available options. Most of these are able to be completed in just one day unless additional overnight stay are chosen. It is always a good idea to book your tour ahead of your visit to ensure availability and verify prices and any potential “add-ons.”

Grand Canyon

A tour of the Grand Canyon is a popular choice and one of the more expensive due to the distance and the time involved. From Vegas there are several transportation options. The choices include tour bus, helicopter, and airplane.

Then, there are more choices. Do you want to just go to the south rim and see the canyon or do you want to go down into the canyon? Do you want to spend the night? Or, maybe you want to stop at the Hoover Dam on the way?

There are many combinations to choose from and prices can run from less than $100 per person on up. There is nothing like the Grand Canyon and it is a must see.

Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park Utah

It’s not that far from Vegas to some of the beautiful topography found in southern Utah. The closer stop is at Zion National Park. Bryce Canyon is a little further to the northeast. As with tours of the Grand Canyon there are many options including tours with a several nights stay.  There are even combination tours that include the Grand Canyon. These two areas are well worth the time and expense and they offer some of the most breathtaking views.

Check Out The Las Vegas Art District 

Few people visit Vegas for the art, but there is a lot of it in Las Vegas. There is art in the “art district” and there is more in the local museums where art by Monet and Picasso can be seen. Las Vegas offers art for many different tastes.

According to CLV (City of Las Vegas Archived Site) the art district is located immediately south of downtown Las Vegas in an area bounded by Commerce Street, Hoover Avenue, Fourth Street and Las Vegas Boulevard (at Charleston) and Colorado Avenue. The district is often referred to as 18b. This is because there were originally 18 blocks that comprised the district.

You will find in this area many galleries, trendy restaurants, and unique stores. There is more information here: http://www.18b.org/
