BONUS: ROAD TRIPS!
Fun fact: Las Vegas is one of the best-located major cities for folks who want to explore the many national parks in California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona — all within a six-hour drive. Make Vegas your starting point then dart out for day trips and easy overnights to any of these mind-blowingly gorgeous national parks. Go before they’re sold off to the highest bidder for condos or parking lots or whatever.
