What’s HOT This Summer in Las Vegas?

By Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

“Ugh, these casinos are a bore, we can only play at the tables or lay by a pool for so many hours. What can we do INSTEAD?!” If you’ve been to Vegas more than once OR if you’ve booked a trip that’s more than two days long, I KNOW THIS THOUGHT HAS SURFACED IN YOUR MIND! Don’t feel bad, the casinos won’t be mad at you ;) In fact, they’d like you to step away from the hustle and bustle, free your mind, and return to hand over some more of your hard earned money! No worries, Vegas is more than a 24 hour party (for some)! A few Las Vegas tours is just what you need to see ALL of Vegas. Whether you’re wanting to go play in the dunes, or if you’re more of the Las Vegas canyon tours type, we’ve got you covered this summer.

Helicopter Tours

Las Vegas Night City Tour
Some of our favorite Las Vegas summer tours involve a really large “bird”.
“Squaaaaaaaaaawk, squaaaaaaaak!” No, no, not a living, feathered bird… these birds are state-of-the-art Eco-Star HELICOPTERS! Ohhhhh what fun! There are so many Las Vegas day tours to experience via a helicopter, we’ve picked three that we think you will LOVE!

Neon Nights Air Tour

The Neon Nights Air Tour starts with a limousine and champagne toast, followed by 12-15 minutes encapsulated in a gravity defying Eco-Star helicopter! A friendly pilot will take you for a tour over the Las Vegas Strip, Glitter Gulch, and Fremont Street. If you thought walking the Strip and looking up at the majestic buildings and massive, flashing, neon signs was a thrill, you haven’t experienced ANYTHING until you look DOWN on this same energy-filled, glammed up, GLORIOUS Strip. This Las Vegas tour is easy on the pocketbook as well, at only $89 per person.

Grand Canyon Day Tour
West Rim Express

Busy sleeping at night and looking for a Las Vegas day tour in one of the “birds”? The West Rim Express tour is an affordable way to see the Grand Canyon’s West Rim and the Colorado River during the day. Departing from the West Rim, this tour soars high above the Grand Canyon before descending below the canyon walls, where it will land, allowing you to get out for 20 minutes, take in the immense canyon, shoot some photos, or just stretch your legs… and yes, you MUST get back in the helicopter to get back to up to the top of the rim… it’s much too steep to climb and the terrain is a “little” rough ;)

Sunset Dream
Sunset Tours to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas

Wanting to go all out and impress your “honey”? The Sunset Dream Tour tour is a lengthy flight that is geared towards romantics. The beauty of the red rock formations as the sun dances and plays, showing off its colorful variations and shadows, be stills a beating heart. Valley of Fire, Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill, Hoover Dam, Fremont Street, and the Las Vegas Strip are all covered on this flight! Snuggle up with your loved one, share a moment in the beauty of the Grand Canyon, and thoroughly enjoy each other while flying atop one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

ATV/Buggy Tour

Desert Dune Buggy Tours

Does the thought of flying make you want to crawl in a hole and cuddle yourself like a scared child? Las Vegas day tours can also mean some fun riding ATVs around the Valley of Fire! The Valley of Fire Buggy Tour will take you through well-known, and often publicized, dunes for some off-roading fun! Your safety is not overlooked on this wild and crazy day tour! You will want to dress in something other than your Sunday best as this Las Vegas day tour will get you dusty and dirty (isn’t dirty fun always the best kind?)!

Horseback Ride & Lunch

Horseback riding tours

“Here horsey horsey. Here boy. C’mon now, let’s partner up and take this trail on like we are part of the Wild West!” Now, you won’t really have to wrangle your own horse to do this Las Vegas day tour but you WILL have to enjoy the one hour tour of Red Rock Canyon (which, I promise, won’t be a problem)! The Ol’ Spanish Trail Horseback Ride and Lunch will take you down the Ol’ Spanish Trail that stretched from Santa Fe to Pueblo de Los Angeles in the mid 1800’s. You’ll stop to enjoy an authentic cowboy lunch… do we also need to say cowgirl to be politically correct ;)… after returning from the trails and corralling up your gentle horse.
