AUVSI Las Vegas

Day 1

What to do

There is such a wide range of choice when it comes to finding something to do while in Vegas, from the cheesy, almost tacky, flashing lights of the strip to the gorgeous views of the Grand Canyon, golfing areas, shopping and the West End theatres! The ball's in your court!

Howard W Cannon Aviation Museum

McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, NV, 89109

If you want to stock up on your knowledge even more, then check out this aviation museum. Open 24/7.

After some you time? Some relaxation after a day at the show? Then a spa could be exactly what you need. With the majority of hotels providing spa services, you will never be far from one. The Mandarin Oriental Spa has received the Forbes Five-Star award and is one of the most popular spas, with an array of treatments and experiences.

Grand Canyon

The major attraction of Las Vegas is the great Grand Canyon. There are many different ways to experience this outstanding natural beauty spot, from walking and jeep tours to helicopter trips, whatever your budget allows! Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the incredible Red Rock Canyon.

Valley of Fire

About an hour's drive from the strip you will find some of the most incredible desert in South-west America. With red rock formation the Valley of Fire is a must- see for those of you used to a city. The best time to visit would be late afternoon into the evening as day temperatures can hit 40oc. You can book a tour from around $135pp.
