For the whole family
Two of the most popular spots for family activities in town are Red Rock Canyon, for hiking, and Mt. Charleston for hiking, skiing and sledding (in the winter). Should you wish to relax in luxury and let some one else do the driving; check out our Red Rock and Valley of Fire tours. At Mt. Charleston, check out the Las Vegas Ski and Snow board Resort, which is open from Thanksgiving to Easter.
Water enthusiasts can ride the waves at Lake Mead (or cruise the lake in comfort) or head out to the Hoover Dam (you can take an air, bus or Hummer tour as well). Other places you'll want to visit include the Valley of Fire, where you can explore petroglyphs and camp, and of course, the Grand Canyon, which offers a great many options.
If you want to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving the city, check out the 180-acre Springs Preserve. This cultural and historical attraction also features an 8-acre garden you can walk around and four trails that lead to the Preserve's cienega, a desert wetland that serves as a home for hundreds of native plant, bird and animal species. Dine at the Springs Café while enjoying the scenic surroundings.
How about flying above the desert like a bird? On the Bootleg Canyon Flight lines you can soar through the air on a zip line. Feeling the need for speed? Ride the same dune buggies featured on the popular MTV show, "Rob & Big." 
For an exciting off-road experience, thrill seekers can take either a dirt bike or SUV off-road tour.
Other sport-related attractions in Vegas
The greatest outdoors shopping, at REI, in the District may be found at The Green Valley Ranch
the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World at Silverton.
