6 Warm-Weather Adventures
There's more to Vegas than slot machines and buffets. Sprawling red mountains greet hikers, rock climbers and cyclists at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area, just 20 miles west of the Strip. Out at Lake Mead, visitors eschew video poker machines for houseboat rentals and stargazing. And if the quiet is too much, seven different Cirque du Soleil shows are minutes away (877/847-4858; visitlasvegas.com).
