Right up front we have to confess, we are not big fan of the Vegas Strip scene. We do love visiting Vegas, but for the outdoor activities 🙂 There are some awesome mountain biking trails, hiking trails, Lake Mead to hang out, and even a ski resort not to far from the city!
We got to explore Red Rock Canyon, hiking it and mountain biking it as well. Got to enjoy Lake Mead and also did some mountain biking at Bootleg Canyon Bike Park, which is close to Lake Mead… oh and even go to hike in the snow!
We had been to Vegas before a few times, with friends, and others just as a pit stop on one of our road trips. This time, we actually stayed in an RV Park in town for almost 3 weeks. During that time, friends from Austin came to celebrate a birthday and it was awesome to hang out with them for a few days. Not only that but we also got to visitors that were coming to Vegas for their first time, my nephew and Rubi’s brother.
Being in town for those weeks convinced them to come hang out for a few days and see what all the Vegas fuzz was about I guess 🙂
Overall, we always enjoy our time in Vegas… not for the same reasons that most people do (the casinos, drinking, parties, shows, etc) but for the outdoor activities that surround the area.
