For indoor sight seeing head to the casinos. Here you'll find shows, theathers, or even in some cases rides. Plus its just fun to walk around and look at the various themes they have dreamed up for each hotel.
Once you feel like heading outside, drive to the Southern Nevada Zoological Park, 1775 N Rancho Drive, 702-647-4685. Here you can enjoy over 150 species of plants and animals, including Barbary apes, wallabies, and venomous reptiles.
Feeling even more adventurous? Call Black Canyon Raft Tours,1297 Nevada Hwy, Blouder City, 702-293-3776 and make plans to see some of Nevada's beauty up close on a one day raft trip from Hoover Dam to Willow Beach on the Colorado River. For something less strenuous you can paddle around Lake Mead, walk the trails at Red Rock Canyon, or tour Hoover Dam.
Prefer to get your thrills behind the wheel? Then you'll find what you are looking for at the Richard Petty Driving Experience, 6975 Speedway Blvd, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 702-643-4343. Hooking up with these folks will give you a chance to drive or ride in a Winston Cup Style Stock car at the Motor Speedway. If you opt for the ride-along, you'll be strapped into a specially designed two-seat stock car and then a professional instructor will zoom you around the track for 3 laps. Not enough? Then make plans to sign up for one of their driving courses that puts you behind the wheel.
Need something to calm your nerves after your ride? Though a slow stroll through a chocolate factory isn't your normal sight seeing trip in Vegas you can tour the Ethel M Chocolate Factory & Cactus Garden, 1 Sunset Way, Henderson, NV, 702-435-2641. In good conscious I must warn you that these chocolates are highly addictive. Favor M & M's? Then you'll find happiness in Vegas too at M & M World Las Vegas, at the Showcas Mall next to the MGM Grand, 3785 S Las Vegas Blvd, 702-740-2504. Here you can watch a 3-D movie, view a full sized NASCAR Race car, personalize your very own M & Ms and generally run wild on four floors of family fun.
If you need something to wash all that yummy chocolate down, head on over to the World of Coca-Cola, r3875 Las Vegas Blvd S, 702-270-5965. Here you can take a ride up the world's tallest Coke bottle, then wet your whistle with unlimited refills of over 30 different soft drinks, and shop in their Everything Coca-Cola store. Or, if juice is your drink of favor, you'll want to head instead to Cranberry World West, 1301 American Pacific Drive, Henderson, 702-566-7160.
