Visiting the Las Vegas Area

As summer heat subsides, local event calendars are just warming up. Visitors to the Entertainment Capital of the World know they won’t have trouble finding things to see and do. Las Vegas is always bustling with activity, and this season's no different – a wealth of special events, festivals, outdoor adventures, and family-friendly activities is ready to reward visitors for straying from the beaten path.

There’s still time to enjoy America’s Pastime – Sin City sports fans cheer on the future MLB stars of the Las Vegas 51s at Cashman Field. Check the schedule during your visit and spend a day at the ball park, as the last game of the season is on September 7th. The 51s close out the season hosting the Tacoma Rainiers.

Cooler weather means more outdoor adventures in the expansive surroundings of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson. Just northeast of town, Valley of Fire State Park is great for a hike, and scenic stops along the way include Atlatl Rock, Seven Sisters, Mouse’s Tank, and White Domes – perfect for picnics.

Nearby Lake Mead National Recreation Area lends itself to all sorts of waterborne fun this time of year. Get out onto the water for boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, scuba diving, and fishing. Explore the land just off shore, where the terrain is ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, scenic drives, and more.

Of course, no Vegas-area visit is complete without a glimpse at the mystifying magnitude of the Hoover Dam. These days, the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge lets U.S. Route 93 travelers bypass the dam, so take Exit 2 and the Hoover Dam Access Road to get up close to the legendary structure.

After strolling the Vegas Strip and seeing iconic sights like the Bellagio Fountains, head downtown to dig into local culture. On the first Friday of each month, local galleries like the Art Factory showcase hundreds of local artists’ works, which overflow into the streets of the downtown Las Vegas Arts District. Get there early to take it all in, the First Friday Art Celebration usually gets started around 6 p.m.
