Weekends, Side Trips & City Nights
There are markets in major cities … and then there are markets in Las Vegas, a desert playground that rightfully boasts, “something for everyone.” With a Sunday-to-Thursday runtime, Las Vegas Market puts pre-market or post-market (or both!) getaways within reach. Here, a few jaunts that might jumpstart your workcation plans …
Swap heels for hiking boots and head to Red Rock Canyon. Enjoy hiking, rock climbing or a scenic drive through a Mojave Desert landscape.
Grand Canyon National Park is a four-hour drive from market. The South Rim trail is open all year, but lodging outside the park is the safe bet.
Want a different vantage of the mighty Canyon? Take a helicopter tour. Some offer Jeep tours and other off-road add-ons.
Want a lower altitude, but still the view? Take a whirl — or a yoga class — on the High Roller. You can schedule an Ethel M chocolate tasting, too.
Something faster? Dream race in the driver’s seat of a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche or McLaren.
Less revs, more green … the closest round of 18 is just minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip.
Las Vegas Market’s neighbor, the Smith Center®, is host to everything from Broadway shows to world-class concerts.
Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art … “where art goes on vacation.” Past exhibits have featured works by Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
Art of a different variety? Try the Neon Museum Boneyard, a two-acre outdoor exhibition that features more than 200 signs, 11 of which are restored.
Enjoy confections at the Ethel M Chocolate Factory, a 15-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip; then tour the neighboring Botanical Cactus Garden.
Teal-blue waters tempt, just 30 minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. Visit Lake Mead National Recreation Area, which boasts 820 miles of shoreline.
