November in Vegas is easily the quietest month on the Strip. With pool season long gone, and the overall busyness of summer put away for another year, the city becomes a little sleepy, which makes it the perfect time to head off-Strip and into nature. With the weather cooler and less going on it’s a great way to explore the surrounding areas of Las Vegas. Here are 7 breathtaking tours to take this month.

Grand Canyon
The first place we think of when we think of breathtaking in Nevada is the Grand Canyon, and with the Grand Canyon South Rim Tours by Gray Line Tours, you can explore the natural wonder throughout November. This exceptional tour takes guests to the Grand Canyon National Park, where you can explore the many trails surrounding the Canyon, take photos at Mather Point and even head deeper into the Canyon to explore Bright Angel Lodge.

Hoover Dam
Known as the most architecturally man made dams in the world, the Hoover Dam is one of the most stunning attractions to see outside of the Strip. With any of Best of Vegas Hoover Dam tours you’ll get to experience the Hoover Dam’s visitor center, generator room and, the best part, experience gorgeous views of Lake Mead from on top of the dam.
