I should warn you before you read on that the feeling of floating through the air without having to jump out of an airplane can be addicting. If you take your children they will talk your ear off about the experience and if you do it you'll have a hard time not starting every sentence with "I went skydiving today." You have been warned, it's about as much fun as you can have in Las Vegas and not be on the edge of the what is socially acceptable. This is one of the best things to do in Las Vegas because you can do it with your entire family or alone.

This is probably the best thing to do that involves the natural scenery of Las Vegas.
