You already know that Las Vegas is an affordable getaway any time of year. The weather is warm year-round, and it’s easy to get good deals on flights and hotels. However, you can be forgiven if yet another round of casinos and shows feels played out to you. If you’re looking for some adventure off the Strip, then racing, self-driving tours, and road tripping might be the perfect way to experience something new in Las Vegas. Whether it’s getting up close and personal with the architecture that made Vegas famous or driving insanely fast on a Lamborghini on a closed track, check out these options for hitting the road in Las Vegas.
Best Driving Tours in Las Vegas
Just because you can’t afford a Ferrari doesn’t mean you don’t get to drive one in your lifetime. Exotics Racing has you covered. Want a professional to whip you around a track drifting? They’ll do that. Want to drive a Lamborghini, Porsche, or McLaren? They can help you there too. They’re well equipped to make your speedy dreams come true. Exotics Racing can also get you airborne, racing a Baja truck on a dirt track. Tired of your nephew telling you about Mario-Kart? Why not try whipping around in a go-kart on a massive outdoor track? If you have that need for speed, Exotics Racing is totally your thing.
Las Vegas Architecture Tour
While there is obviously a lot to see for architecture with the casinos in Las Vegas, you also shouldn’t miss out on some of the other unique architecture in the rest of the city. Whether it’s oddities like the Little Church of the West or the proudly retro Atomic Liquors or its mid-century marvels, you’ll be able to tour the sites in the comfort of your own vehicle by checking out what Las Vegas Driving Tour has to offer, coming soon. You can roll up to the twisted-up dreamscape of the Keep Memory Alive Event Center while your virtual guide shows you photos and tells you everything you need to know. These self-driving tours are from the same renowned team that offers self-driving tours of Palm Springs architecture and sites. Celebrity homes, iconic casinos, and self-guided walking tours are coming soon.
Day Trip to The Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire
As landmarks go, the Hoover Dam is still one of those “must-sees.” Most of the massive structure can be viewed with tours, including opportunities to walk through the original construction tunnels, get amazing views, and even (if you get the heartily recommended extended package) see the actual Colorado River flowing right through the inspection ventilation shaft deep inside the dam. Since you’re out in the desert for the day, you cannot miss Valley of Fire State Park. Brimming with iconic desert landscapes, Valley of Fire has incredible gorges, hoodoos, and arches. The red rocks give the whole area an otherworldly feel.
Make your trip to Las Vegas your first or your next, more memorable and photo-worthy with driving adventures. Tour in comfort, race luxury cars, and see the desert the way it was meant to be seen.
