If you’re worried Las Vegas won’t have enough teen-friendly activities for your upcoming family vacation—fear not. Las Vegas is actually filled with fun activities the whole family can enjoy, including outdoor adventures! Here are five activities teens will love in Las Vegas, according to our staff at Black Canyon River Adventures.
1. Stratosphere Thrill Rides
Do your teens enjoy roller coasters? If so, the rides at Stratosphere will knock their socks off. From blasting straight up into the air on the Big Shot to spinning 64 feet over the Tower’s edge on the Insanity ride, there’s a little bit of everything for your crazy adventurous teens to enjoy.
2. Black Canyon River Adventure
The perfect outdoor escape from the Strip, Black Canyon River Adventures offers a smooth water rafting experience suitable for the entire family. Teens will love the chance to cruise down the Colorado River on a motorized raft. On this tour, they’ll be able to spot wildlife, splash around on the beach, and learn new things along the way.
3. Rock Climbing
For more off-the-Strip fun, take your teens rock climbing at Red Rock Climbing Center. Here, they’ll be able to reach new heights and challenge each other (and you) to a friendly competition of ‘who can reach the top first.’ With over 8,000 square feet of climbing walls ranging from easy to very difficult, this gym is perfect for everyone! Drop in for the day for only $15 per person.
4. Blue Man Group
Of course a trip to Las Vegas isn’t complete without seeing at least one show. Our personal favorite is the Blue Man Group. It’s funny, clean, and up-beat—which is especially ideal for the younger teens. You can purchase the family 4 pack for discounted ticket prices as well.
5. Red Rock Canyon
Only 30 minutes from the Strip is Red Rock Canyon, a hikers paradise! Take in the fresh air and gorgeous desert scenery as you and the family explore the canyons and trails not far from your Las Vegas hotel. This is a great way to spend your morning away from the crowded streets, too.
