Vegas, done differently!
The lights and glitz of Las Vegas can certainly be fun, but we can’t help but wonder about the lights and glitz of the night sky far away from the strip. We’ve heard there’s more out there than gambling, and now, we’re ready to find out!
Join Bold Betties as we adventure to a lesser known area just a short drive from the Las Vegas airport, the Black canyon of Nevada!
Situated on the border between Arizona and Nevada lies one of the most famous engineering marvels, Hoover Dam. There at the base of the dam itself, we’ll begin our journey into the Black Canyon.
Highlights of this Adventure:
- Guided Canoeing on the Colorado River
- Sauna Caves and Hot Springs
- Riverside Campsite
- Delicious meals prepared by guides
- Dinner Cruise on Lake Mead
- Walk at the Hoover Dam
- Bike Ride
- Chocolate Factory Tour and Tasting (with wine!)
