It's not just for high stakes and low morals anymore. With more outdoor action within a 200-mile (322-kilometer) radius than any major town in the nation, Sin City has got a new slogan: Whoever plays in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

It seems out of place to have a kayak on a car driving down the Strip, right? Ten years ago maybe, but not today. Las Vegas is becoming a central hub for outdoor enthusiasts. Here in my home turf, you can head north to hike the Narrows in Zion National Park, west to the base of the Sierra, east to the Grand Canyon, or south to find amazing sand dunes.
