It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to an end and it is time to get ready to go back to school. Let’s face it, that’s probably a relief for a lot of parents. It can be hard to find a way to keep your kids occupied during the summer. But remember, this is a great time to take some time off and do something special as a family. Hopefully you have had time to travel, hike, see a show, or do a fun project together with your kids. Here is another idea of something fun and educational to do together as summer comes to an end.
Taking a helicopter flight is a great way to spend some quality time with your kids. Whether you are visiting, or you live in the Las Vegas area, it is a great way to learn about the history, geography, plants, and animals of the Grand Canyon and surrounding area! You will also create memories together as a family that you will never forget. Here are some of the things that you might learn about on your flight.
• Fly over Lake Mead and learn about the history and importance of the Unites States largest reservoir.
• See the Hoover Dam from the air and learn some interesting facts about what was, at the time, the most expensive project in U.S. history.
• Experience the Grand Canyon from the air (an experience unlike any other!) and land inside the canyon, nearly 4,000 feet below the rim. Learn about the unique geology of the Grand Canyon, as well as its amazing plants and animals.
• Take in the vast beauty of the area surrounding the Grand Canyon, including the Grand Wash Cliffs, extinct volcanoes, and more. Learn about all of these sites and their history first hand!
These are just a few of the things that you can learn about on a flight with Serenity Helicopters, all while enjoying an exhilarating, thrilling ride of a lifetime! Your kids won’t even know that they are learning, but these are the experiences that will stick with them forever! Here is what some of our guests have to say about what they have experienced on flights with their families.
“We booked the Serenity Helicopter tour to Grand Canyon over Hoover dam and Lake Meade. It was wonderful- such absolutely breathtaking sights! We then flew out over and then in the canyon and actually landed at the bottom for a picnic and beer and sodas for the kids! We had 3 children with us 2, 5 & 7 and Serenity made it super easy for us and the kids. Brett, our pilot, was excellent so knowledgeable and made us feel very at ease on our first helicopter trip! Pick up and drop off service super smooth! Thanks serenity helicopters for making us create wonderful memories on family vacation!” - taryn81
“What a wonderful flight over Hoover dam, extinct volcano, fortification hill, Indian pass, black canyon, and Lake Mead. During the flight Mad Dog Mike became a tour guide with a wealth of information. He was a comedian and an amazing DJ. Flight was smooth and comfortable, great A/C with the most incredible views!! Can't thank Serenity enough for this experience and can't wait to come back and do it again!!” - amyg0509
“This is a MUST DO while visiting the Las Vegas area. The entire team, from the luxury shuttle all the way to the pilot were absolutely amazing. Our pilot was Cole - amazing playlist throughout the tour. Enjoyed the trip with my wife and two teenage children - everyone was amazed! The absolute highlight of our trip to VEGAS!!” - TheBryanFamily2014
“We did a 4 night stay in Vegas with kids aged 12 & 8, and wanted to visit the Grand Canyon but driving out didn't seem much fun. Can't recommend Serenity Helicopters more highly. Great commentary from our pilot Jim. Don't have the words to express how fabulous this tour was. Jim put my nervous kids at ease, and shared a great level of knowledge with us about the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Grand Canyon and the surrounding area. Was absolutely worth every cent and would highly recommend this company.” - A TripAdvisor Member
