Whatever happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas. At least that’s what used to be said. However, this Mojave Desert city is also home to lesser-known attractions that travelers will keep talking about long after the trip.

Considered by some as the world's most entertaining city, Las Vegas is far more than large hotels and overstated casinos. It offers car enthusiasts two of the best exotic car driving experiences in the world and some exciting family-friendly destinations.

Top Tourist Attractions

Lake Las Vegas

Lake Las Vegas is a 320-acre artificial lake built 16 miles outside of the city. The area is currently home to three resorts, giving families who prefer a quiet and stress-free vacation a great alternative to the crowded city center.

The lake was created thanks to a dam that stands 18 stories high. It is claimed the earthen dam has the same amount of dirt in it as the Hoover Dam has concrete. While this part of Las Vegas has seen significantly less commercial success when compared to the city center, its serene environment should be given a try by tourists.

Helicopter Tours of Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam

Visitors to Las Vegas will find a number of companies advertising helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. It is an unforgettable experience being in a helicopter looking down at two of the most iconic destinations in Nevada.

The Grand Canyon is more than a four-hour drive from Las Vegas. However, travelers can get to the site in no time via a helicopter tour. Some companies offer a full-day excursion that takes customers to the Grand Canyon and drops them off at the Colorado River. There, adventurers can take a boat ride down the river and have lunch near the landmark.

Although the Hoover Dam is just a 40-minute drive from the city center, it is an amazing humanmade site to view from the air. The helicopter tour will take adventurers over the dam and around Lake Mead and the Black Canyon.

Dream Racing

Dream Racing calls the Las Vegas Motor Speedway home. The company offers customers the world’s largest selection of cars to choose from for an unforgettable driving experience on a challenging race track. Dream Racing promises car enthusiasts the experience of a lifetime when they get behind the wheel. Beyond the wide range of supercars, Dream Racing also has an unrivaled collection of GT race cars. For those seeking a little more, the ready to race program takes it to the next level by allowing guests to participate in a racing program under the watchful eyes of professional race car drivers.


Exotics Racing

Exotics Racing is another high-quality driving experience that will leave adrenaline junkies satisfied. Drivers can choose from a number of supercars to race around a purpose-built race track close to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The driving experience gives customers an extensive list of cars to choose from. These cars include the AMG GTR and the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. The company also has a racing school program that gives students the chance to learn the ins and outs of being a real race car driver.

High Roller Ferris Wheel

One attraction that will likely be of interest to all visitors is the High Roller Ferris Wheel. Opened to the public in March of 2014 and with a height of 550 feet, it was the world's tallest Ferris wheel until the Ain Dubai came along. So long as you're not scared of heights, the High Roller offers terrific views of the city and the desert beyond city limits.

Las Vegas doesn’t have to be about gambling. The city offers so much more to holidaymakers these days. The desert city may have been made famous by its casinos and extravagant hotels, but it’s definitely the best holiday destination in the world for a car enthusiast.
