The horse and buggy was a popular method of early transportation, far surpassing the bug and buggy, which could barely move and was often destroyed by squeamish gunslingers. Saddle up with today's Groupon: for $75, you get the Jesse James Sunset Steak Dinner Ride from Las Vegas Horseback Tours (a $149 value). Tours last roughly 3 to 3.5 hours total, and kick off at approximately 7 p.m. in the summer and 5 p.m. in the fall.
Las Vegas Horseback Tours whisks trailblazers away on a peaceful trot though the scenic Nevada landscape. Upon arrival at the trailhead, visitors join up with a cowboy or cowgirl tour guide for a lesson in equine safety before mounting a trusty steed, robbing a train, and hitting the trail. The spur-toting guide leads the way on the two-hour horseback expedition, giving up to eight riders the chance to spot local wildlife and watch the sun set into the cool night sky over Nevada's panoramic horizon. After parking their four-legged convertibles, tour takers can kick back under a boundless blanket of stars for a picnic-style dinner, complete with a succulent, cooked-to-order steak, a hearty baked potato, warm apple pie, and other homestyle vittles. Chicken, fish, and vegetarian meals are also available for red-meat lovers choosing to acknowledge opposite day.
