Group Ideas Near Las Vegas Strip

It’s easy to put Vegas in a box of gambling, shows and food, but we believe in digging a little deeper. Don’t get us wrong. We love to channel our inner Vince Vaughn, and declare our buds to be “money.” But, we like to go off the beaten path, and maybe, just maybe, check a few things off the bucket list…

Drive Your Dream Car

Everybody has that one car that turns them into the cartoon wolf with their tongue hanging out and howling. Maybe for you it’s a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. Another may go old school with a Bentley. Regardless if you want to roll in style or with speed, World Class Driving helps put the rubber to the road by making the dream come to life.

Hang With Sharks

In the early days of Vegas, chances are the only sharks in the desert would be at the card tables. These days you can have an intimate encounter with the rulers of the sea. The folks at Mandalay Bay offer certified scuba divers a chance to dive with over 30 sharks, including Sandtiger, Sandbar and White Tip Reef Sharks. If you prefer to keep a safe distance, head over to the Golden Nugget and take a ride on their three-story slide that goes through their shark and fish tank (BTW: you can check out rooms on in our hotel directory).

Make Your Mark

Any grown-up kid that read “Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel” or who watched “The Flintstones” will beg to go to Dig This! Here kids at heart (over the age of 14) can have the thrill of using a state-of-the-art “Caterpillar” D-5 track-type bulldozer or 315CL hydraulic excavator. Spend quality time digging trenches, plowing over mounds of dirt and pushing gigantic boulders.

Don’t get us wrong. We are fully supportive of playing cards, lounging by the pool or enjoying the delicious dishes of world famous chefs. In fact, you can combine your agendas just in finding the right hotel. For example, the Golden Nugget is one of the featured facilities for group travel. Plus, it is a member of the National Tour Association. And, if you’d like to go for the trifecta of lodging, list and luxury, consider booking the limo bus. Now, you’re money!
