Off the Strip: Do Las Vegas Like a Local

When you think of Las Vegas, you usually instantly think of the Las Vegas Strip with lots of casinos and parties but there’s another side to Las Vegas to explore that will expose you to a whole different world. Here are some examples of some of these spots for you to do Las Vegas like a local.

Fremont East

The Fremont East Entertainment District (FEED) spans for six blocks. It is the perfect combination of local businesses, street-life restaurants, cafes and bars and cocktail lounges. Here you can also enjoy fun-filled entertainment, cheaply priced food and drinks, retail stores and even residential living. This is a popular getaway for locals who enjoy the atmosphere.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Red Rock Canyon can be found approximately 25 minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. This spot is perfect for persons who love the outdoors and adventure and it welcomes people from all over the world, who climb the many trails of varying intensities. Even if you don’t climb, Red Rock Canyon has a 13-mile scenic drive for those who just wish to take in the views and fresh air, as well as plants and wildlife, geology and camping. It is a fun and fresh escape for locals.

The Arts District

Most visitors to Las Vegas are unaware that there is an Arts District. It is a cultural melting pot of galleries, hip antique shops and boutiques, restaurants, cafes and even living spaces. Many persons first learn of the Art District because of the First Friday Las Vegas festival, which is held monthly. During this festival there are live performances on the streets lined with art and craft vendors and several food trucks, while artists open their studios and galleries to the public. It is an experience like no other.

Mount Charleston

Although you wouldn’t guess it, Las Vegas has many sites of natural beauty. Mount Charleston is a good example of this. Here you can hike, camp and even ski during the winter. During the summer, families of locals and visitors escape to Mount Charleston for some fun and to cool down as the temperature is usually 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the rest of Las Vegas.

The Mob Museum

This museum is for lovers of history and a good story. The Mob Museum offers a unique picture of organized crime from years ago in Las Vegas which could have been witnessed from alleys of cities in America to eventually the entire world. Interactive and realistic exhibits and Mob and law enforcement artifacts all homed in a former courthouse are just some of the reasons why this is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Lake Mead

During the hot Las Vegas summers, temperatures can surpass 100 degrees. Another way to cool down on hot days rather than a hotel pool, would be to visit Lake Mead. This is one of the world’s largest manmade lakes and has many fun activities including kayaking, jet skiing, swimming, hiking and viewing wildlife. The wildlife includes many animals and plants including tortoises, sheep and Joshua trees.

Thinking about exploring the other side of Las Vegas? Contact Encore Residence Club and we would be happy to help you explore the possibilities, but at a fraction of the cost.
