Road Scholar
Program #17297RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Starting from its very beginning as a resort destination — in large part developed by the famed gangster Bugsy Siegel — Las Vegas and the mob have had a shared history. Through discussions, presentations and active learning opportunities with local enforcement agencies, UNLV faculty and experts in crime prevention, learn about the past, present and future of organized crime in Las Vegas.


Highlights

• Hear from retired officers and the former FBI Special Agent assigned to rid Sin City’s streets and casinos of criminals.
• Meet with a member of the Nevada Gaming Commission to learn how gamers have tried to beat the house and the regulations designed to stop them.
• Explore the new Mob Museum located in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas, inside the historic former federal courthouse and hear tales of Sin City’s colorful past.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile over the course of the day.

Coordinated by University of Nevada Las Vegas.
