“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright
The iconic Grand Canyon is located in Arizona – it’s one of the most popular Day Trips from Las Vegas. The magnificent steep-sided canyon is approximately 277 miles long, up to 15 miles wide, and more than a mile deep. Depending on the time of day, the Grand Canyon changes colors, offering visitors spectacular vista views – it’s a “must-see” family attraction!
Fun Grand Canyon Sightseeing Tours & Day Trips
Book an Adventure Guided Tour, a Fun Day Trip, a Hummer or Jeep Tour, a Helicopter Tour or an Excursion to the Grand Canyon – it’s truly one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world. Visit Grand Canyon’s Skywalk (pictured below). Step out onto a glass-floored, 70-foot long, open-air Skywalk Observation Deck that juts out 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and the Colorado River.
Hoover Dam & Lake Mead Tours from Las Vegas
Hoover Dam is Southern Nevada’s most famous visitor attraction, drawing almost a million visitors a year. Did you know that there is enough concrete in the dam to build a two-lane highway from San Francisco to New York? The massive dam was constructed during the Great Depression, between 1931 and 1936 . Today, it is one of the area’s most popular destinations. It’s an ideal Day Trip, as it’s conveniently located only 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas.
If you enjoy water sports, be sure to visit Lake Mead. It’s the largest man-made lake in the United States. Lake Mead lies on the Colorado River, by Hoover Dam – just 25 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Recreational activities include swimming, camping, boating, fishing, scuba diving, and water skiing.
