Sunseekers: Part three

    Vegas, baby!

    Whether you’re looking for nightlife; live shows and casinos, or mountains, camping, and hiking, you can head west and visit Vegas. Everyone knows about the incredible nightlife Vegas has to offer, but many people don’t realize that a direct flight on Allegiant to the Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) will put you in close proximity to several of the country’s best National Parks, iconic landmarks and outdoor excursions.

    Vegas nightlife and casinos go without explanation, so I’m going to touch on some of the city’s lesser known attractions. Within the city, kids can find exciting roller coasters and theme parks, indoor skydiving, hot air balloon rides and horseback riding. Vegas also offers renowned shopping districts, day spas and wine tasting. Just outside of the city is the famous Hoover Dam for your exploring. There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy in the greater Las Vegas area.

    As mentioned, by flying into Vegas you’re also within a day’s drive to several of the nation’s best National Parks. Death Valley National Park is a quick two-hour drive outside of the city, Zion National Park is a three-hour drive, the Grand Canyon National Park is a four-hour drive, and Joshua Tree National Park is three hours to the California border.

    Vegas would be the perfect fit for thrill seekers, adventurists and those wanting a fast-pace trip with endless options for excitement.

    Wherever you end up choosing to fly for your winter escape, be sure to soak up the sunshine and bring a little bit of it back home with you for the rest of us Michiganders.
