Las Vegas is a special place, showcasing the best of several countries with famous themed hotels and iconic replicas. You can visit the Eiffel Tower, Roman palaces, the canals of Venice, New York City and so much more. Stroll the bright lights of the Strip with its mega casinos, epic ziplines, futuristic theme parks, innovative art galleries and unusual museums like the Neon Museum with its collection of historical Vegas signs. Vegas isn't all about the glittering skyline and casinos. Just north of the city, natural wonders await. Trek the Valley of Fire State Park, where you’ll discover unique bright red sandstone formations and America’s ancient history. On your hike, you can see ancient rock art carved into sprawling canyons and magical balancing rocks. At nearby Lake Mead National Recreation Area, you can hike one of America’s most diverse parks featuring mountain treks, a canyon river perfect for fishing, and the iconic Hoover Dam – one of the top construction achievements in the 20th century. Travel west to Henderson, a laid-back suburb by Lake Las Vegas. It's a scenic town with lots of greenery and views of rugged mountain peaks. Go to the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve, where you can spot local wildlife or tour the Las Vegas Distillery, where you can sample iconic whiskeys from Nevada's first craft distillery.
