There is the old saying that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas". This slogan reads more of an encouragement to embrace your naughty side while visiting, and then forget everything about it when you leave. Besides the allure of the chance to strike it rich at the big money tables, or to hit the jackpot on the slot machines, isn't all that you want to get out of your vacation. Sure you could always catch a show or partake in many of the twenty-four hour events that happen away from the main drag. But if you want something more memorable, maybe you should consider Las Vegas Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours.|
Who doesn't plan on visiting the 'Strip' or the 'Fremont Street experience' on their Vegas vacation? Well everyone of course. But to limit yourself to the obvious destinations may actually undermine the potential access to other unique points of attraction.
Considered by many to be one of the many natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is full of some the most beautiful scenery imaginable. This steep Colorado River carved gorge lies in the north central portion of the state of Arizona. You can see all of this wonderful scenery by car, by raft, or even from the air.
Can you imagine touring the Grand Canyon in a helicopter? What better way to get up close and personal with this spectacular geo-formation than through a personal guided tour with Tourguy.com.
Perhaps one of their most popular tours is the 4 in 1 Helicopter and Ground Ranch Adventure. You will leave from the downtown Las Vegas area and immediately head to the infamous Hoover Dam where you will tour it by ground and by air. Next you will find yourself in the air looking over Lake Mead and Black Mountain. The 900-year old Joshua Tree Forest will be your next destination followed by the treasure of the day, the Grand Canyon. Following an aerial tour, you will land to explore the canyon floor and learn all about the Old West with lunch provided at the Grand Canyon West Ranch. You will then embark on another aerial tour of magnificent West Rim. With this tour, you spend the most Grand Canyon flight time available from any other related tour.
They also offer a couple of other Grand Canyon based helicopter tours. You could choose the Toast of the Spirits tour that comes with a champagne picnic upon the canyon floor. Another option is the Indian Country tour that not only provides an aerial tour, but combines this with a boat ride up the Colorado River, and a walk off the ledge on the only the only canyon glass Skywalk.
While a helicopter tour sounds like it would be about the most exciting possible way to view the canyon, it may not be for you. Alternatively, you could join up on a bus guided tour. This tour will take you to see the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and through Black Canyon before commencing to the Joshua Tree Forest. You will next travel to the Grand Canyon to meet the Indians of the Hualapai Nation and take in their culture.
There are many alternatives to see all the great geographical and historical attractions within striking distance from Las Vegas. Be sure to take advantage of these opportunities, and take home great memories, even if that is against the mantra of "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas".
