You love Vegas and all it has to offer. But did you also know there's a stunning adventureland not far from the Strip? Nearby Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (pictured) is a climbers' heaven, with hiking and horseback trails galore. The relatively untracked Valley of Fire State Park is only an hour away. You can kayak down the Colorado River from the base of Hoover Dam. Vegas, baby, indeed.
