Las Vegas mountain selfies

Take Mountain Selfies

Just a 15-minute drive from Silverton Casino-Lodge is Red Rock Canyon, seemingly a world away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas.  Here, you will find plenty of “selfie” opportunities.  Our favorite is the Calico stop on the 13-mile scenic drive.

Las Vegas zip lines

Ride the Ziplines

You’ve got a few choices when it comes to Las Vegas ziplines.  On the Strip, the FLYLINQ zipline towers above the Linq promenade (above).  Located downtown, the SlotZilla ziplines take you on a thrilling trip under the LED-lighted canopy of the Fremont Street Experience.  If you are looking for a taste of the desert, check out the Bootleg Canyon zipline in nearby Boulder City.

seven magic mountains las vegas

Explore Seven Magic Mountains

Internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains is a large-scale site-specific public art installation located near Interstate 15, approximately ten miles south of Las Vegas. Comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than thirty feet high, Seven Magic Mountains is situated within the Ivanpah Valley adjacent to Sheep Mountain and the McCullough, Bird Spring, and Goodsprings ranges of mountains. A creative expression of human presence in the desert, Seven Magic Mountains punctuates the Mojave with a poetic burst of form and color.   During summer months, be sure to go early to avoid mid-day heat.
