Family Fun In Las Vegas; No other city in the United States has the instant recognition of glitzy Las Vegas, Nevada. Unique for its almost exclusive reliance on the casino entertainment industry, Las Vegas is a city constantly redefining itself as developers try to out-dazzle their competitors. The result is a mishmash of towering casino-hotels and blazing bright signs. Some of the shows, as well as some of the drinking establishments, are one-of-a-kind. However, if we look beyond downtown and the Strip we will find Las Vegas is situated in a beautiful desert environment where family fun and outdoor adventure abounds. Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

  • Although Las Vegas is commonly referred to as 'Sin City,' many of the adult exotic clubs are neatly tucked away from the Strip, unlike legalized gambling which is always in full view. Don't be tricked into thinking Vegas is just Sin City; it resides in an enchanting high desert environment. Make sure to visit Red Rock Canyon and the Hoover Dam. Both have excellent visitor centers to accommodate tourism.
  • It has been said that the only difference between Wall Street and Las Vegas is 'a matter of interior decoration.' If you plan to gamble in Las Vegas remember the House always has the advantage. After all, that's how those massive casinos are built. If you choose to gamble, just do it for the entertainment value, never to increase your net worth.
  • The Red Rock Visitor Center is open 8am - 4:30pm every day. There is a nominal car day-use fee to enter, which also includes access to the 13-mile Scenic Drive. The entrance to both are located just off State Route 159, or Charleston Boulevard, about 20 miles due west of the city. Check the canyon website or call the Red Rock Visitor Center for more information.
  • In the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, there is a significant security presence concerning the vehicular crossing of Hoover Dam. Because of the attack, the Hoover Dam Bypass project was expedited. Truck traffic across the dam is presently restricted. All motorists are briefly stopped and checked, while some types of vehicles are inspected prior to crossing the dam. Semi-trailer trucks, buses carrying luggage, and enclosed-box trucks over 40 feet long are not allowed to cross the dam at all. Private cars and pedestrians are allowed to do so.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
