Memorial day weekend in las vegas

When it comes to holidays, Memorial Day is one that Americans tend to hold dear. The last Monday in May of each year is designated as Memorial Day, a day when we collectively show reverence and remembrance for those who have given their life for our country.

This year, Memorial Day is observed on Monday, May 25, and most revelers will tend to tack on the previous Saturday and Sunday to create a special three day weekend. To make the most of your Memorial Day weekend while in Las Vegas, take a look at some of the following activities that combine exhilaration and a serious dose of fun:

Take an ATV Ride

Ride ATVs in Las Vegas

While Las Vegas is certainly known for its lavish casinos and incredible nightlife, there is so much to see once you venture beyond the city limits. Taking an ATV ride or tour through the red-tinged hills and valleys just a few miles beyond the city is an exhilarating and awe-inspiring way to explore local terrain. Partner up with a reputable outfitter like Adrenaline ATVs and get ready to cruise.

Visit Lake Mead National Recreational Area

There is so much to do within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area that you’ll wish you had more than a three-day weekend. It can get hot in Las Vegas during the month of May, so cool off with an exciting ride across the clear waters of Lake Mead on your very own personal watercraft rental. Modern personal watercraft offers stable and comfortable performance, ferocious acceleration, and all of the thrills you would expect of a virtual rocket on the water.

Lounge by the Pool

There is no shortage of pools and day clubs in Las Vegas, and several resorts deliver an unbelievable experience. Some resorts offer private cabanas, poolside drink and food service, renowned DJs, and lush, luxurious surroundings. Of the popular pool destinations in Las Vegas, Liquid Pool Lounge has been one of the premiere locations for tourists visiting Memorial Day weekend looking to escape from the Las Vegas sun.

Go to a Shooting Range

The Range 702 Ultimate Shooting Experience Las Vegas

If you are looking to create a truly memorable experience during this upcoming Memorial Day weekend, head over to a local shooting range in Las Vegas and have some fun.

If you are looking for the ultimate shooting experience, check out The Range 702. There, you’ll be able to shoot guns as mild as .22 caliber pistols and as wild as fully-automatic machine guns. If you would like to gain some experience in the shooting field, think about signing up for the Intro the Handguns class that is held on Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. We should all take the time to remember those who have served our country – and those that continue to do so.

This time of year is also one in which we should spend quality time with those we care about and enjoy the three-day weekend. If you are in Las Vegas this coming Memorial Day weekend, make sure that you get out and experience the best that this area has offer. From ATV riding to lounging at the pool, riding jet skis or relaxing  to shooting an AK-47, Las Vegas truly has it all.
