Top 5 Things to do on Your Las Vegas Destination Trip

Are you thinking of taking a trip or planning an event in Las Vegas, Nevada? Depending on your needs and the scope of your event, you may need the assistance of Las Vegas Destination Management, a Las Vegas-based DMC (destination management company). We offer a myriad of options to fit your needs such as destination by design where we will apply our expertise down to the very last detail in order to bring life to the event that you imagined.

Las Vegas is the city of entertainment, so you’ll find no lack of opportunities for things to do, but there’s also more to do than just gambling or seeing shows, albeit Las Vegas does have some of the best shows around. With our vast knowledge of Las Vegas, and as the premiere event company in the city, we compiled a list of the top things you should plan on doing when visiting the city.

1. Dolphin Fun at the Mirage

This event features an all-day ‘Trainer for a Day’ program, which lets guests put on a wetsuit and work with a family of bottlenose dolphins alongside a professionally trained crew. Participants establish a rapport with these intelligent creatures by feeding, training and performing medical assessments such as heart rate monitoring and ultrasound observation. And of course, you get to swim with the dolphins!

2. Swimming with Sharks

Like the previous activity, you might think how is this possible in Las Vegas? It’s a desert. Well, anything’s possible in this town, particularly if you have the right destination management company. At Mandalay Bay, there is a full-sized aquarium that bills itself as America’s only predator-based aquarium. It features jellyfish, moray eels, piranhas, rare golden crocodiles and 15 different species of shark. If you’re a certified diver, you’re able to dive and take a swim with these beautiful but dangerous predators. It’s quite the thrill and don’t worry, all divers have to don a chainmail anti-shark suit and the sharks have already been fed.

3. Dig ‘em up

Ever wondered what it might be like to control a full-sized bulldozer or excavator? Well with, Dig This Vegas you can fulfill your dreams in this ‘big kid’ sandbox. This heavy equipment playground lets you choose between a Caterpillar bulldozer or a Caterpillar Hydraulic excavator to move dirt, rock, sand or tires. There are also skill-based games such as 1-ton monster truck tire stacking.

4. Valley of Fire

Ok, so this one is not technically in Las Vegas, but it’s only 58 miles northeast of the Strip and definitely deserves mentioning. When you think of Las Vegas destinations, you probably don’t consider the natural beauty the area has to offer. Enter the Valley of Fire - the oldest state park in Nevada, covering nearly 35,000 acres. Here you can view the magnificent red sandstone formations that were formed from great shifting sand dunes during the prehistoric era. You can also check out the valley’s unique wildlife.

5. Golf Like a Pro

Whether you choose the world-famous golf course at Rhodes Ranch, or want to take lessons from a world-famous pro, Las Vegas is the city to do it! Named the nation’s top golf instructor for 12 straight years, Butch Harmon has taught the likes of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson and offers his own eponymously named school of golf where you can learn to swing like a professional.

As you can see, there is a lot more to do in the Las Vegas area besides gambling and eating, although those things are great, too. If you’re looking for help with planning your next Las Vegas destination trip, contact us today and we’ll be happy to help.
