Travel Fanboy

Off the Beaten Path

In this episode of the podcast, I talk with Chris from the Faces and Aces LV podcast. We discuss activities in Vegas that aren’t related to gambling. I know, I know, I’m a crazy person. But, sometimes, we just need to break away from our typical Vegas routines and have a new adventure. We’d love to hear your suggestions. Here are a few things we’d like to try:

Neon Boneyard

Tours of the boneyard feature 200 signs of the Vegas of our past. Access is only provided by guided tours and bookings should be done well in advance.

Day tours – $18

Night tours – $25

Eagle Rider Motorcycles

I (Adam) am a motorcycle fan, but my wife won’t let me own one. Accordingly, I like to look for two-wheeled rentals if I ever travel alone. Hell, even scooters will do. You can rent a Harley or scooter in Vegas for less than $100 on most days. Some companies will even deliver them right to your hotel. You can then take your bike out to…

Red Rock Canyon

A great Mojave Desert conservation area. Hiking, biking, or even just driving is sure to offer a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the Strip. Grab a morning cup of coffee, take a nice drive, and get your day off to a quiet start.

First Fridays

“…a monthly celebration of creativity and authentic Las Vegas culture. Activities take place all over Downtown, with the primary Art Walk event in the Arts District.”

Get to know the beating heart of the true Las Vegas culture the first Friday of every month in Downtown Las Vegas.

Mondays Dark

“Vegas’ top performers come together to give back”

The third Monday every month, Vegas performers come together to put on a show to benefit local charities.

Adventure Combat Ops

A 1.5 hour airsoft gun battle. Though, you’re not always competing against a particular team. Think of it as Call of Duty live…but with appearances by the “undead”.

Dig This

A heavy equipment playground. You know how you used to play in the sandbox in your backyard. Well, you can do that with the real thing. However, don’t try to leave the grounds and bulldoze your least favorite resort. I’m not sure they’d allow that.

Have any other favorites we didn’t mention?
