The Scene: Fueled by tourism and real estate projects, Sin City's growth ranks near the top in the nation. But it's the desert that truly beckons: with climbing on Red Rock Canyon's pink sandstone or driving three hours to Zion.
OPTIONS: Climb straight up the red and pink columns of Cloud Tower in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area; incomparable Zion National Park is only 2.5 hours away; Ski Mount Charleston; raft down the Colorado River; or laze on Lake Mead.
OUTFITTER: Ride the single track ridges of Bootleg Canyon among bighorn sheep, desert tortoises and coyotes with Las Vegas Outdoors (800 748 3702).
GOOD EATS: Hickory smoked ribs and mug of locally brewed Sin City beer at Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que (+1 702 257 7427).
