Gambling is not the only reason that tourists visit Las Vegas, as several natural areas, including Lake Mead National Recreation Area to the southeast near Boulder City and Valley of Fire State Park to the northeast are nearby. The Fremont Street Experience, a pedestrian walkway that spans five blocks from the "Las Vegas Strip" to Main Street, offers amazing entertainment along the way. Each night, at dusk, a Light and Sound Show may be seen that boasts millions of lights and concert quality sound. On the first Friday of each month, the "First Friday" celebration is held and the works of local artists and musicians is exhibited in a section of the city's downtown region, now called the "Arts District". Broadway shows and other major touring attractions as well as orchestra, opera, and dance performances will be scheduled at the "Smith Center for the Performing Arts", situated downtown in Symphony Park. Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley can be visited in one day, and a variety of guided tours to these areas are available. With more than 300 days of sun every year, weather in Las Vegas is perfect for your vacation plans. Let the excitement begin!
