Las Vegas Side Trips

When it’s time to get away, Las Vegas has plenty of diversions.  To help with your plans, here are three of our favorite Las Vegas side trips — and a great offer to stay at Silverton.

Las Vegas Side Trip #1:  Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas

It’s  the perfect time of the year to visit Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which features a 13-mile scenic drive, miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, and picnic areas and many other outdoor recreation opportunities…  just 25 minutes away from Silverton.

The Scenic Drive, a 13 mile paved road, provides access to explore the many special canyons and sandstone hills in the heart of the canyon. There are 12 different trailheads and free parking areas to begin your next outdoor adventure. A visitor center provides a great introduction to the unique natural and cultural history of this area along with safety and orientation information.

Note:   Currently, Red Rock Canyon has a timed entry reservation system.  All vehicles entering the Scenic Drive need a free reservation, which is available online.

Las Vegas Side Trip #2:  Town Square

Town Square Las Vegas

‘Tis the season for outdoor shopping!  Just a few miles from Silverton, Town Square is a premier one-of-a-kind retail and entertainment destination, featuring 26 architecturally distinctive buildings, public parks , and water features.  Park your car and stroll around, visiting 150 retailers – from Apple to Zumiez, and every brand in between.

When it’s time to head indoors, Town Square is also home to  AMC 18 Theatres and Stoney’s Rockin’ Country.

Las Vegas Side Trip #3:  AREA 15

AREA 15 Las Vegas

AREA 15 is a new immersive playground in Las Vegas, all rolled into a vast and vibrant entertainment district.  It’s one of the great Las Vegas side trips.  Throw an axe, wander through a bamboo volcano, race on a zip line, or explore other mesmerizing realms.  From the futuristic to the thrill-seeking, there’s an experience for everybody here.

Dozens of featured experiences include VAN GOGH – The Immersive Experience,  the MEOW WOLF Omega Mart attraction, Sanctuary Sessions Silent Disco,  the Army of the Dead VR Experience, Lost Spirits Distillery, and the brand new illuminarium, which opens April 15.

Welcome Football Fans!

The 2022 NFL Draft kicks off today, drawing thousands of football fans into Las Vegas.  The city has promised a spectacle at a level never before seen for the annual event.

NFL Draft in Las Vegas


To welcome Draft fans to Las Vegas, the famed Silverton mermaids recently added a special sign to the Silverton Aquarium, which has been named the #1 free attraction in Las Vegas.

Tonight, the Silverton will host a special event in the Veil Pavilion, for Round One.

“Under the Radar” at Sundance Grill

This is the second in a series of posts that feature “under the radar” menu items at Silverton’s Las Vegas restaurants.

Executive Chef Ashley Archer is a big fan of the house-made buratta, which is served at Sundance Grill with grilled bread as an appetizer, and alongside fresh tomatoes and watermelon in the Caprese salad.

Watermelon Caprese Salad


“While many restaurants out there might offer buratta, we actually make ours fresh in our kitchen,” he said.  “When you consider the volume that we serve, this speaks to the pride that we take into our work and being in true control of the final outcome.”

Chef Ashley is particularly proud of the “scratch kitchen” philosophy that he and his team live by. “Would it be easier to buy this product?” he asked. “Sure! But there is a true feeling of accomplishment when you take raw ingredients that are sourced from the best vendors.  We take pride in knowing our buratta is better than any other that you might have tried.”

“It’s this particular road map that has allowed us to stand apart, while staying relevant to our guests as they join us on this culinary journey,” the chef said, with a twinkle in his eye.


What is buratta?

Burrata is a rich, creamy Italian cow’s milk cheese, with an exterior that resembles fresh mozzarella.  But – surprise! – you’ll find an ooey, gooey mixture of cream and small cheese curds inside, with an delightful silky texture. It’s the perfect complement to crunchy, grilled bread, which is exactly how we serve it at Sundance.

Sundance Grill at Silverton Casino is one of the best Las Vegas restaurants.  Specialties include country-fried steak and eggs, prime rib with creamy horseradish, towering pancake stacks and more. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night.

Las Vegas Knows How to Make a Splash

Las Vegas may not be the first place that comes to mind when you’re looking for places to take a cool dip or make a big splash this summer. But look beyond the cacti for the many oases that are sprinkled throughout the valley, refreshing and ready for you to dive-in.

Wet ‘N’ Wild
Looking for a way to beat the heat, take a dip under the stars, and enjoy some of your favorite blockbusters –all at the same time? Head over to Wet ‘N’ Wild and catch one of their Dive-In Movies with new favorites and cult classics always being added to the list and shown throughout the month from 8 PM-10 PM.

Lake Las Vegas
Head east for a day trip to Lake Las Vegas, and don’t forget to bring along your appetite for adventure! Walkthrough the Italian inspired village to Lake Las Vegas Water Sports where you can rent paddleboards, kayaks, or amp up the adventure even more with a flyboard experience or a round on the inflatable Aqua Park!

Lake Mead
Grab your flip flops, pack a towel, and prepare for a perfect day at the lake. With options to swim, boat, hike, cycle, camp, and fish at Lake Mead, America’s first and largest national recreation area, you’ll never be short on adventure.

Did you know that Silverton Casino actually has a houseboat docked at Lake Mead that qualifying Diamond Members can take advantage of? High rollers can take on the high seas – or in this case, manmade lakes with striking landscapes and brilliant blue waters.

Whether you’re looking to dive-in and chill, enjoy an adventurous day on the water, or simply go for a cruise this desert has you covered in any direction you may be heading. – Or if you’re looking for a smaller body of water, Sway Pool is always open for hotel guests looking to soak up the sun.
