3. Take A Helicopter To The Grand Canyon
While this may not be a car, it does have an engine, and being in a chopper is always a thrilling experience. Maverick Helicopters is located right next to the airport and offers several packages. But if you want to venture out of Sin City for a bit, opt for the Wind Dancer tour and head out to the Grand Canyon. It takes about 35 minutes to reach the national park and you’ll pass the Hoover Dam, Lake Meade, and Lake Las Vegas along the way. Once you reach the Grand Canyon you’ll descend on an otherwise unreachable cliff and stop for bubbly and snacks. The trip ends with a swing past downtown Las Vegas and the Strip, a wondrous sight from above. And if you’re short on time, Maverick also has Strip tours in the evening so that you can admire at the lit-up thoroughfare from above.
