Not big on gambling? Neither am I! People come to Las Vegas for all sorts of reasons, but in most cases, they come for excitement So, if you’re not interested in spending hours or days in a dark casino sipping on cocktails, do not worry, there is so much else to do in Sin City. This is my detailed Non-Gamblers Guide to Las Vegas, which “hint, hint”, includes lots of excitement.

#1 UTV adventure through the desert
Las Vegas is known for its beautiful deserts and stunning night skies. In these adventures, you explore the Nevada desert by following a guide through hills, sand dunes, rock climbs, and desert washes. This is your chance to see it all during this exciting and thrilling adventure.

#2 Exotic Car Racing
This is your chance to drive your dream car! Also, this is your chance to push the peddle with no regrets, because no speed limit is enforced. No experience is required. All cars come with two seats, one for your instructor and one for you the driver. Simply arrive, choose your car, watch a safety video, then it’s time for the need to speed.

#3 Zipline or Zoomline over Fremont Street
You can either zipline or fly like superman down the famous Fremont Street in Downtown (Old Las Vegas). You can choose to zipline from 7 stories (seated), all the way up to 11 stories high (superman). This is your chance to scream “Viva Las Vegas” as you zipline over the crowd below. “Go-Pro” devices are not allowed since they are a danger to the people below if they fall. However, these pictures come with your tickets for no extra charge. This may be the only time you get “lucky” in Las Vegas! Tickets sell out fast so purchase in advance.
#4 Walk the Strip
We always have a blast walking the strip with first-timer friends. We usually spend an entire day going into each casino and looking around. It’s the best way to see all the attractions up close and personal that Vegas has to offer. I call it an adult Disney World. The Vegas Strip is 4.2 miles long and runs from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere. It takes about 90 minutes just to walk the strip with no stops along the way. If you have limited mobility, I suggest taking The Las Vegas Monorail for $12 a person. There are seven stops along the way. Also, there are several trams to select from. HOWEVER, walking is by far my favorite way to see the strip.
*Do not jaywalk the cops are watching at all times.
*You are not allowed to hail a cab directly off the strip. I suggest going to the hotel and having the door man find you one.
*Las Vegas can get hot so bring water. We usually bring a backpack. It was over 108 degrees during our trip.
