Las Vegas isn’t just for the young crowd. From magic shows to river raft tours, there are plenty of activities for senior citizens to enjoy that don’t include spending all day in the casino. Whether you’re active or prefer to sit back and relax, we’ve come up with a list of top things to do in and around Las Vegas for senior citizens.
1). Black Canyon Raft Tour
Black Canyon River Adventures’ three-hour motorized raft tour takes guests on a leisurely ride down the cool, placid waters of the Colorado River – with no major rapids or dangerous rocks in the way. Here, you can snap a picture of a majestic Bighorn sheep on the canyon cliffs 2,000 feet above the river, or relax and listen to the tour guide’s informative tidbits.
2). Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art
Where the art comes to you! Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is an exhibition space where some of the world’s most famous artists’ work is available for you to view in Las Vegas.
