Get away from the city and take in some natural beauty at Mount Charleston, the highest peak in Southern Nevada. It’s a whole lot cooler up there during the summer months, perfect for a picnic, or hiking and mountain biking if you want to stay active, and you can even do some skiing during the winter!
Blue Diamond Park is another great location, and chances are good that you might see some wild burros roaming about the area. Take your bike, ride around Landmine Loop and finish up with a picnic and star gazing at the park.
If you want to raise the pulse of your date, why not go horseback riding at The Cowboy Trails, who offer a convenient shuttle service from central pick-up points. You can enjoy breathtaking views from the trial and activities are a great way to break the ice. If you want to step it up another level, go ziplining in Bootleg Canyon with Flightlinez, just 30 minutes from the Strip, and turn your date into a memorable event. Free flying through the air on a zipline over the Mojave Desert promises to get the heart racing.
