When you think of Las Vegas, there could be a hundred things that pop into your mind. With the sheer immensity of entertainment options, Las Vegas is appropriately thought of as the entertainment capital of the world. For a guy in a relationship, there’s no need to feel pressure of the Vegas Strip as there are other modest activities besides ones that may jeopardize your relationship. Las Vegas is much more than merely the lights and sounds of the Strip. This isn’t to say that life on the Strip can’t be entertaining for you if you’re in a relationship because it very well can. However, if you’re a golf enthusiast, a guy that enjoys the excitement and natural splendor of camping, or even a married guy that doesn’t want to put himself in situations that may be unsettling to their partner, Las Vegas offers a lot do outside of the city. There are over 100 Las Vegas golf courses in the area to choose from – all with their own personality and skill level.
Outside of the Vegas’s neon lights, Mother Nature puts on her own show. There are 13 national parks within a short drive of Las Vegas. These parks include some of the most unique and beautiful natural areas in North America. The reddish desert sand of Nevada’s landscape contrasting to bright, blue open skies is something to behold and a truly unique mix of nature abounds. For example, in King’s Canyon, you can see the giant sequoias, the largest trees in the world. Or at Arches National Park, you can camp among the spiraling, finned, arched and, overall, the most interesting rock formations known today.
If you are going to spend some of your time with the excitement of the Las Vegas’s famed Strip, there are a number of entertainment options to keep you busy. For example, the MGM Adventurdome features five acres of indoor fun, including high-octane rides for the adrenaline junky, and Las Vegas always offers a new Cirque du Soleil show that will keep your jaw dropped. For the music-lovers, Las Vegas will always provide a wonderful array of live musical performances on any given night also.
Overall, the best way for you to experience all that Las Vegas has to offer is to experience both the excitement of the city, the peace and challenge of Las Vegas golf courses and the natural splendor of what lies outside of the city. If vacationing for you means having a balance of relaxation, excitement and remaining faithful to your girlfriend, Las Vegas is an ideal place to visit if you broaden your idea of fun.
