In addition to the activities I mentioned over the last 6 days of my Stripless series, here are a few more things you can do in the Las Vegas area.
Red Rock Canyon: Only 20 miles west of Las Vegas but plan to spend the day.
China Date Ranch: A working date farm and bakery (and gift shop) 84 miles southwest of Vegas.
Ash Meadows Wildlife Refuge: 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas
Laughlin: 97 miles south of Vegas, with lots of recreational opportunities in this area along the Coloardo River.
Golf Courses galore: Need I say more? This is where my heart is.
So, next time you're in the Vegas area, save your money and go out and explore!
