Las Vegas is a bucket list experience in general. Going there for Independence Day can save you a lot of money, as a lot of hotels offer 50 percent discounts and more (largely because it’s usually hot this time of year). You can easily find rates for $100 a night, leaving you with extra cash for all kinds of adrenaline-inducing activities such as racing dunes, taking a hot air balloon for some incredible photo opportunities, and mountain biking.
