When you think of Las Vegas, the first things you’ll probably think about are gambling, the desert, shows and clubs.

It is easy to say that finding activities to do in Vegas is not a hard task. But what about all the activities you can do that you didn’t know about? Here is a list of activities you didn’t know you could do in Las Vegas while attending IDAExpo … and any other time you find yourself in the United States’ City of Lights.

Swim with sharks and exotic animals

The Shark Reef aquarium located at Mandalay Bay is the home of more than 2,000 animals including giant rays, endangered green sea turtles, piranha and the rare golden crocodile.

This unique exhibit gives you the chance to dive with exotic sharks, and you can also experience Sea Monsters Revealed, the world’s largest exhibition to uniquely preserved sea creatures. Feed stingrays, sharks or turtles in this program.

Drive on the track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Feel the adrenaline rush behind the wheel of a 600HP NASCAR race car. While the nightlife on the Las Vegas Strip is legendary, when the sun is up the action is always at Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s top attraction, the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

You can also have the IndyCar Experience at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a 6-lap driving program that is the ultimate experience for race fans and open wheel car enthusiasts!

Drive classic cars through the Red Rock Canyon

Slip behind the wheel and experience the thrill of driving three classic American muscle cars on beautiful roads through Lake Mead or Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas.

You’ll spend plenty of time in the driver’s seat of sleek, high-performance cars such as a Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang, Corvette Z06 and Dodge Challenger SRT8.


Take golf lessons with Butch Harmon

Who is Butch Harmon you ask? He’s only the guy who taught Tiger Woods.

Imagine yourself in a quiet setting in Las Vegas, and you are learning the game of golf from Butch Harmon, who has worked with the best players in the history of golf. Not only will you learn some swing secrets, but you will hear inside stories about what it’s like to work with Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and other pros.

And maybe, those pros might be just down the range from you honing their game while you work on yours.

Ride the world’s tallest ferris wheel

Shining bright on the Las Vegas Strip, the 550-foot-tall High Roller stands out at The LINQ’s outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment promenade.

The High Roller takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with broad views of the famed resort city. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people, and you can fly solo or even rent out an entire cabin.
