My favorite thing to do in Las Vegas is see the fountains at the Bellagio.
- There are a bunch of different songs that the fountains dance with, including, my favorite, “Time to Say Goodbye” with Sarah Brightman and Andre Bocelli. It’s so romantic and grand. The climax is HUGE and very exciting.I love taking a hike at Red Rock National Park.
- Taking a Hike at Red Rock Canyon is great. It’s the perfect time of year to go hiking. Getting to Red Rock is quick from Las Vegas. From the west side of the city, it’ll take you anywhere from 15-30 minutes. There are lots of great trails available for hikes.
- Going to Lake Mead to Water Ski and Inner tube! I have a friend who owns a boat and occasionally we’ll head out and enjoy the Lake. If you look the picture, all the white part on the mountain is where the water level USED to be at. We’ve use more water in the last 20 years, then we have in the last 70 years. We have to conserve our water. I wrote about the “green movement” in my other blog.
- Mt. Charleston is a “cool” place to visit during the hot summers. Also, it a short drive to get to see show in the winter time. There are also some hiking trails up there, plus a few places to stay at the lodges. Very pretty.
See! There are other things to do in and around Las Vegas that don’t involve the strip or a casino.
