While staying at mega-resorts is one good way to experience Las Vegas, Nevada, it is by no means the only way. What if you want to stay for more than a week? What if you don't want to be stuck on the Strip, near all of the casinos? What if you want easier access to golf courses and other activities not found on the Strip? Theoretically, you could stay in one resort. Theoretically, you could never leave the Strip. But you would miss out on seeing so much, on seeing Las Vegas fully, and on seeing why Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the fastest growing regions in the US. Seven areas, difficult to reach when confined only to the Strip, have activities, which vary for each, but cannot be exhausted. If you want to know the geological details of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Park or Valley of Fire State Park; if you want to learn about how three of the four desert ecosystems in the US cross at Lake Mead Recreation Area; if you want to ski at Mt. Charleston Recreation Area or kayak and raft to the Hoover Dam; then renting one of the many vacation rentals like condos, villas or apartments is a smart idea. While you may look on a map and see those areas are at the four corners of Las Vegas, Nevada, in all likelihood you and your family will be nearby a few of them. As you can see, Las Vegas is not exclusively for gambling and show tunes. But if you want the shops, lights, action, casinos, restaurants, and shows, old school downtown and Boulder Strip are one stop destinations too. They can be a trek from the Strip, but near condos, villas or apartments for rent. If you play golf, renting outside the Strip is not only smart, but almost necessary. If you hit a ball from one course, it could land in a different course altogether, so many golf courses there are in Las Vegas. Renting one of the many vacation rentals like condos, villas or apartments, you have the luxury of being on the green or a short drive to a course.
