Sunday, September 23rd marks the 1st day of autumn. Like many Las Vegans, the thought of the changing temperatures to less than this stifling heat is welcoming. You may want to take advantage of some outdoor venues near and around Las Vegas. You might enjoy some free outdoor concerts, or hiking in the Mt. Charleston area; or taking in the beautiful desert scenery at Red Rock or the Valley of Fire. Or, for the young and young at heart, you may even enjoy some spine-tingling thrill rides at many of our local casinos. No matter what, when the temperatures start dropping, take advantage of all the great attractions around town and enjoy Las Vegas outdoors.
