With so many kinds of entertainment available and one of the best locations for warm, sunny weather anywhere in the world, it’s not surprising that Las Vegas attracts visitors from across the globe. Of the more than 40 million visitors to Sin City last year, nearly 1 in 6 were international, proving that distance isn’t keeping tourists from flocking to the desert.
And just like the wide appeal of the Vegas strip, ATV tours happening in the city’s surrounding desert bring attract people from all different demographics and nationalities. The city you live in and the language you speak become unimportant details when the expanse of desert scenery and wildlife opens up all around you.
For the Hearne family from Boston, self-described rookies when it comes to driving ATVs, they loved feeling like they could be comfortable at going their own pace, remarking that “it wasn’t just about the speed and the dust, but the views were unbelievable.” As one of the many families visiting Las Vegas with children who are under 21, an ATV tour was the perfect family-friendly activity that everyone had a blast doing. Anyone 12 years or older can be a passenger, while being 18 or older with a valid driver’s license means you’re good to get behind the wheel of the Polaris RZR. For those too young to drive, the fast ride through the desert is still a thrill, and a longer, more interactive one than any amusement park ride or waterslide.
An Astoria, Oregon couple joked of their first ATV experience, “we’ve been married for a long time, we wanted to see if we could get along together in an ATV”. Judging by their smiles and laughter while winding down at the end of the tour, there’s no trouble in paradise for these two. With their daughter chiming in the tour is “one of the best things” she’s ever done, the cross-generational appeal of an ATV ride through the desert is undeniable.
For people from more densely populated parts of the world, like Europe, it’s rare to have the feeling that you’re out in the middle of nowhere. Combined with the desert ecosystem that many visitors have never encountered before, our Las Vegas ATV tours can become the most unique and memorable experience of an international traveler’s trip to Nevada.
Whether you’re visiting from another state or country, ATV tours offer a blend of fast-paced driving and stunning scenery that looks a lot different from where most people call home. On a trip with your family, spouse, or best friend, it’ll bring out the thrill-seeker in everyone.
