Whenever Las Vegas is presented on film and television, the most common image is the Strip, a collection of glitzy hotels, casinos and other businesses, bathed in a rainbow of neon lights. It forms quite a picture, especially at night, but it isn’t the complete picture. There are many off-the-beaten path places to explore on a trip to “Sin City” – and these are the kind of adventures that, when they happen in Vegas, they don’t have to stay in Vegas.
