Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Get in touch with nature at Valley of Fire State Park and Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge. Discover out-of-the-way places like Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge and Spring Mountains Visitor Center. Go for a jaunt from Las Vegas to Mesquite to see Little Finland about 1h 35 min away. Spend the 19th (Wed) exploring the stark beauty of Escape Adventures and Las Vegas Cyclery. Spend the 23rd (Sun) riding across the waves with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, make a trip to Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign, and see the interesting displays at The Neon Museum.

Visiting Winter Park Resort and Summit Lake Park will get you outdoors. Step off the beaten path and head to Trail Ridge Road and Many Parks Curve Overlook. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown), Estes Park (Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures, Earthwood Artisans, & more) and Rocky Mountain National Park (East Inlet Trail, Bear Lake, & more). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cathy Fromme Prairie Natural Area, and look for all kinds of wild species at Plains Conservation Center.
