Las Vegas is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the U.S., famous for the “Strip” where one can casino-hop 24/7, catch world-class shows, dine on mouthwatering cuisine from across the globe or even hop on a heart-pounding thrill ride.

There are a few things about “Sin City” that might surprise you too. The 4.2-mile Strip is actually in the neighboring town of Paradise, and if you venture just a few minutes away from all the action, you’ll discover all sorts of opportunities for outdoor adventure.

Whether you plan to test your luck on the slots and tables, take in the shows and all the other attractions, hang out around a pool under those frequent sunny skies, hike through spectacular landscapes or a little of all of the above, these Vegas airbnbs are ideal.
