93 Days of Summer: DAY 11: OUTDOOR GONDOLA RIDES

Updated July 1, 2017 - 8:00 am

Summer spells boating, camping, backyard barbecues, biking, hiking and picnics. Be you the lazy type who wants to simply hang in a hammock or the energetic type who wants to fly a drone, Las Vegas is blessed with a myriad of things to do — even in this awful heat wave.

Summer officially began when you woke up to the solstice this morning (June 21) with the 5.24 a.m., sunrise. Summer officially ends Sept. 22. If you’re counting that’s exactly 93 days. And, we’ve found an activity for every one of them. Thanks to our friends at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for helping us with this search for almost 100 summer activities.

Some are the expected, but several are off the beaten track. So check back every day for a new one to celebrate the lazy hazy days of the season.

Day 11 (July 1) The outdoor gondola rides — are a one-of-a-kind experience with singing gondoliers at the Venetian. You will feel as if you are on vacation in the romantic Italian city of Venice!

Day 10 (June 30) Red Rock Canyon — Head away 15 miles west from the Strip and take a sunset horse ride through the wonders of Red Rock Canyon.
