Take advantage of Vegas’ mild winters for the perfect escape from cold weather. The lower temperatures also make it easier to explore the outdoors without worrying about the valley’s 100°F summers. Las Vegas is near incredible state and national parks, including Valley of Fire, Emerald Cove, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Joshua Tree. Pile your travel party into a car and take a road trip to see the natural beauty of the American Southwest at one (or more) of these stunning parks.

However, you don’t need to travel far from Vegas to enjoy outdoor adventures. Hike through coppery red rock formations beneath a big, blue sky or ride horses through picturesque sandstone canyons. Head to Lee Canyon and shred the slopes at Las Vegas’ unexpected ski spot.

Celebrate the holidays in style on the Las Vegas Strip. Ice skate at the Cosmopolitan on the 4,200-square-foot rink and see the seasonal flower display at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden. Or get your blood pumping at the Las Vegas Great Santa Run, where runners in Santa suits dash through Downtown Las Vegas for a good cause.

Then rest your feet at The Boulevard, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, whether you soak in the private, resort-style pool or kick back in a spacious Suite.

Or soak in the Las Vegas Strip’s neon lights and nighttime thrills on an open-air Jeep tour. Then head to the High Roller observation wheel or Stratosphere Tower for sky-high city views.

After dark, the adventures don’t stop. The Neon Museum is open during the day, but it’s worth booking a tour at night to see the vintage signs light up, each with its own unique story. Remember to catch a show while in Vegas, whether it’s a contemporary circus by Cirque du Soleil, a memorable magic show or a concert from one of Vegas’ residency artists.
