Las Vegas in the summer promises bright sunshine, clear night skies – and triple-digit temperatures. But there are also myriad ways to stay cool – here are our top five picks.
At 550 feet above the city streets, The High Roller is the world’s largest observation wheel. Enter one of 28 climate-controlled, spherical, Italian-handcrafted glass-enclosed cabins and enjoy a 30-minute ride, which is the time it takes for the entire wheel to rotate. Gaze out at amazing 360-degree views – you’ve never seen the Las Vegas Strip like this. Get tickets to the High Roller
Las Vegas is surrounded by the beauty of the desert and in the early morning hours, ride 1,000 feet in the sky with Vegas Balloon Rides for a memorable one-hour flight. The cool air surrounded by the brilliant sky as the sun starts its ascent makes for a soaring experience to remember. BestofVegas.com can take you up, up and away with best ticket prices
Imagine being able to experience the thrills of skydiving without actually stepping into an airplane – or even going outside. Take flight at Vegas Indoor Skydiving for the sensation of free fall without the use of an airplane or parachute. Vegas Indoor Skydiving uses a vertical wind tunnel to simulate being high in the sky, though you’re safely surrounded by mesh trampolines and foam padded walls.
