Explore What Lies Outside of Las Vegas
For those looking for a Vegas vacation without the Vegas frenzy, there are excellent resorts just outside the big city that give you all the same high-class amenities, without the high volume. Check into one of these for your next Vegas visit, and get a chance to see the calmer side of Vegas.
The Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa
With its close proximity to 4 of Vegas’ top greens, the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa is a favorite for golf lovers. Located on a large, lush property, Green Valley is the escape from the city life yet still close enough to enjoy it when you want. Rather than the bright lights of the strip, your luxurious room looks out over the gorgeous Nevada mountains, providing you with a sense of serenity.
Worried about what to eat? Well don’t be, the Green Valley Ranch is home to a range of restaurants, cafes and lounges to please everyone tastes. The award winning Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis not only presents fine cuts of meat, they have an extensive wine list to go along with it. Go casual and grab a slice at Pizza Rock, or spend hours at the extensive Feast Buffet. Plus remember that you are only a car ride from the strip for when you do want that celebrity chef restaurant experience.
The Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa
With the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in its background, the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa is home away from home for families, gamblers and those who seek outdoor adventure as well as indoor hi-jinks. Not only can Red Rock give you a full on spa experience, from massages to body scrubs, they offer guests an array of unique activities like rock climbing, kayaking and bike riding.
If you are tied down with the kids in tow, you can send them to play Kids Quest while you take your turn inside the glamorous casino. Bingo, Keno, and poker games are all waiting for you, alongside over 3,000 of the latest video poker and slot machines and your usual array of table games. With its massive theater and 60 lane bowling alley right inside the resort, and Sandbar Pool sitting on top of its deck, there is hardly ever any reason why you would need to take the 20 minute ride to see what’s happening on the strip.
If you’re thinking about how to fill up your nights, Rocks Lounge features live music almost every night with plenty of room to dance, and plenty of private booths to be treated like a VIP in. The Onyx Bar is a quieter night spot to sip your drink in if you want a relaxed atmosphere to pass some good times with your friends in.
Right outside of the bright lights of the strip is a world full of luxurious hotels with amazing restaurants and activities that rival what you find up-town. Make your next trip a relaxing one by daring to spend your days and nights in a completely different type of atmosphere.
