RIDE ’EM, COWBOY
Anyone who’s ever dreamed of being a cowboy or cowgirl can whoop it up at Wild West Horseback Adventures.
The breakfast and lunch rides ($129) offer a full array of breakfast treats and barbecue favorites, paired with an hour of riding time down a three-mile trail through Red Rock Canyon.
On the dinner trip ($159), guests ride between four and five miles through the Valley of Fire, which takes roughly 90 minutes. Afterward, riders enjoy a sunset barbecue with a choice of steak, chicken or salmon, and roast marshmallows by the campfire.
Each ride is intimate, with an average of 13 guests and five wranglers per trip. Summer is a slower time, but reservations are recommended. Wild West provides transportation with pickups at all Las Vegas Strip hotels and downtown. For breakfast and lunch rides, the drive time to the starting point is about 30 minutes, and for dinner, 40 minutes. — K.C.
