St. George Express is making stops in Las Vegas now! This summer is going to be a hot one so we made a list of 5 ways to beat the heat in Las Vegas summers!
About 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip is Wet ‘n’ Wild Water Park which has more than 25 slides and attractions! This water park has many exciting slides for the older kids and adults looking for a thrilling ride, like the six story vertical drop slides of Canyon Cliffs. This the perfect place to escape the heat during the Las Vegas Summers.
A short drive off of the Las Vegas Strip is the Silverton Hotel and Casino which has a great free aquarium. The 117,000-gallon reef aquarium has over 4,000 tropical fish along with stingrays and sharks. The aquarium also features stingray feedings and live mermaid shows! Close to the aquarium is also a fresh water aquarium that is filled with koi fish.
Take a second to cool down and wander through the garden at Flamingo. The garden is populated with pink Chilean flamingo as well as turtles, ducks and swans. In addition to the wildlife there are some lovely waterfalls and koi ponds to peer into. This perfect oasis will make you feel like you are in another world.
Fremont Street is worth wandering down just because, but the light show is an added bonus! The pedestrian mall is covered by a 1,500-by-90-foot screen with 12.5 million LED lamps. When the sun sets the free Viva Vision light show runs every hour on the hour and is set to popular tracks by Heart, Bon Jovi, The Who, and more. This definitely an experience you don’t want to miss during the Las Vegas Summers!
If you need a break from the overwhelming sights of the Strip, Marjorie Barrick Museum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas has visual arts exhibits from international artists and UNLV students. Entrance is free and there is enough art to wonder around for hours!
