Are the bright lights, epic parties, and mega-casinos on the Strip too overwhelming? Skip all these and go on a natural escape on your next Las Vegas trip. Take a 40-minutes' drive southeast from the Strip and arrive at Lake Mead. Lake Mead is the biggest artificial lake in the world. It has a 700-mile shoreline and six recreational centers offering many fun activities away from the city. Here are some ways to spend your day while at Lake Mead.
Boating on Lake Mead is one of the most relaxing activities in Las Vegas. With over 290 square miles of waterway to navigate, visitors can enjoy the adventure on open water or cool off in a private cove. However, make sure the weather is pleasant. You don't want to be on the water when the wind is blowing, or there's a storm coming in.
