TOP 10 OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN NEVADA
When people think of Nevada they invariably think of casinos which inherently means indoor enjoyment. Don’t be mistaken, Nevada hosts some of the most beautiful scenery in the American Southwest.

SKYDIVE

Nothing quite gets your blood pumping like a skydive but what people often don’t discuss is the unexpected calm and time to enjoy the scenery on the way back to earth. For someone at around six-foot-tall the horizon is about 3-miles away. However, when you begin your skydive, the horizon is over 100-miles away. This means that it truly is the best way to appreciate as much land as possible in one experience.

VISIT THE GRAND CANYON

It’s impossible to accurately describe the magnificence and brilliance of the Grand Canyon. The feelings it evokes is truly astounding and will leave you breathless. There are a number of activities to take in during your visit but none more daunting than the Grand Canyon skywalk which takes you 720-feet over the base of the canyon. Is it technically in Arizona? Yes, but an arbitrary border isn’t restricting this unforgettable experience from our list, particularly when it’s just so close!

8.
HOT AIR BALLOONING

Get up bright an early and watch the sunrise from hundreds of feet in the air on this relaxing and picturesque floating experience. The inevitable bright colors of your balloon won’t hold a candle to the vibrance that the sunrise creates all over the land, wherever the eye can see.

7.
CLIMB A CLIFF

With some of the most picturesque cliffs in the world, Nevada’s tall scenery is just begging to be climbed. Even if you don’t have experience in the sport there are companies in the state which are happy to host beginners. After a day on the cliffs you’ll see canyons and natural walls in a whole different way: “I could climb that.”

6.
STANDUP PADDLE BOARDING

The surprisingly effective exercise of standup paddle boarding has taken the world by slow-floating storm. One of the greatest benefits is that it’s a tremendously engulfing way to connect with the natural world around. Feeling the small waves and currents move you along with the ducks nearby, observing in awe the surrounding cliff faces and flora.

5.
HIKING

There’s something to be said for catching a glimpse of gorgeous terrain, saying “let’s walk over there,” and then actually doing it. In desert regions such as throughout Nevada the terrain allows for one to venture wherever his/her heart contents. Mind the snakes and sport a nice camera to capture late afternoon “golden hour” photographer opportunities when hiking through the state.

4.
RAPPELLING

Some people indulge in the challenge of climbing up a cliff face. And to them we give our collective kudos. But for many of the rest of us, it’s the thrill and ease of gliding down the cliff that is more enjoyable. With the option of rappelling you can take in the sights as well as conquer steep cliffs in an approachable manner.

3.
KAYAK LAKE TAHOE

Lake Tahoe is shared by both California and Nevada and it’s only appropriate that an ecosystem of such beauty should be shared! While hiking around the area is certainly a valuable experience in Lake Tahoe in the summer months, spending time on the lake itself is a can’t-miss activity. Kayaking will allow you to search into various coves and truly enjoy this region from a different viewpoint.

2.
LAND SAILING

Trouble swimming? Looking for a way to be a pirate of the land? Land sailing is a thrilling and unique experience which utilizes the propulsion of wind to power you through the flat lands of southern Nevada. Land Sails generally seat one person despite its huge sail so it doesn’t take a lot of wind to send you cruising, err, sailing.

1.
DUNE BUGGIES

Get dusty in the desert while you’re there and hit the dunes at full speed! Dune buggies tackle the landscape at high speeds and full suspension showing you an adventure that is far better than hanging by the pool or soaking in AC. With rolling bars and sturdy harnesses, you’ll feel comfortably safe throughout the excursion.
