With all the entertaining and enjoyable things to do in Las Vegas, leaving for a day (or ever!) may seem crazy, but you might be surprised to find out how much there is to do in the surrounding area — ranging from notable tourist attractions to hidden gems.
Don’t fret — the bright lights, blaring noise, and bustling crowds of Sin City will still be there when you return, and the geographic location of the city offers travelers too many opportunities to pass up. This includes chances to see some breathtaking natural scenery, enjoy a few outdoor activities, and experience lush green spaces in contrast to the dry desert atmosphere.
Of course, you wouldn’t want to compromise your Vegas vacation too much, which is why all of the following trips can be completed in under a day. Sure, many can be stretched into weekend getaways or longer, but we all know the blackjack tables are beckoning you back, and those steak dinners and endless buffets aren’t going to eat themselves.
