BLACK CANYON, NEVADA
When you think Las Vegas, you think: The Strip, Blackjack and likely, a raging hangover. But on your next bachelor weekend, why not mix it up and paddle for a day down Black Canyon’s flat moving section of the Colorado River. Desert Adventures rents all the gear you need and shuttles you to the start near Hoover Dam. Check out hidden caves and hot springs along the way, and pack a lunch in the dry bag (included with rental) so you can chow down, midday. Don’t forget to reserve your $17 NPS permit (one for each paddler, by law) in advance. ($75, shuttle included; kayaklasvegas.com)
