Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
Step off the beaten path and head to River Rafting & Tubing and Wolf Creek Golf Club. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Strip and Guardian Angel Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Las Vegas side-trips: Spring Mountains Visitor Center (in Mount Charleston), Henderson (Clark County Heritage Museum, Helicopter Tours, & more) and Boulder City (Alan Bible Visitor Center, Lake Mead NRA, Adrenaline & Extreme Tours, & more). Spend the 30th (Tue) exploring nature at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, look for all kinds of wild species at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Charleston, and try your luck at Bellagio Hotel and Casino.

There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, take in the spiritual surroundings of San Miguel Chapel, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, and witness a stunning natural landmark at ten thousand waves.
