About Las Vegas

Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort town famed for its buzzing energy, 24-hour casinos and endless entertainment options. Its focal point is the Strip, just over 4 miles long and lined with elaborate theme hotels such as the pyramid-shaped Luxor and the Venetian, complete with Grand Canal; luxury resorts including the Bellagio, set behind iconic dancing fountains; and innumerable casinos. The Downtown Freemont Street area brings its own flavor of old school Vegas. World class entertainment, shows, nightlife, spa retreats, and sensational fine dining options abound!

Dubbed “Sin City”, Las Vegas is not all about self indulgence; Las Vegas even has culture! So it’ll be up to you if after the race you’d like to soak your beaten and battered body in a mud bath or relax pool side sipping Margaritas or taking in  the latest fine arts show at the Smith Center.

The Vegas Valley Voyage takes you beyond the neon and showcases some of the Mojave Desert’s best kept secrets, and most notable treasures. You’ll feel a world away from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas while at camp in the backcountry- experiencing the wild west like the original pioneers of the valley.
