Five Cool Stops Worth Exploring on Your Drive to EDC Las Vegas

Before we make our way home to Paradiso in less than 2 weeks, we’re heading down to Las Vegas for a weekend under the Electric Sky. EDC Week is finally here; the biggest names in electronic dance, and fans from around the globe, descending upon Sin City for seven days of partying and other shenanigans. Capping off the festivities is the 21st Electric Daisy Carnival. A 3-day extravaganza featuring over 200 artists spread across multiple stages, EDC has become one of, if not, the biggest EDM festivals in the world. Living in the Pacific Northwest, Vegas is a short flight away; but for some, EDC means road trip! If you’re hitting the road to EDC this week, here are some fun places worth checking out along the way!

BASE Jump At The Snake River Canyon (Twin Falls, Idaho)

If you’re leaving from British Columbia, Washington state, or eastern Oregon, your route will likely take you through Twin Falls, Idaho. Serving as the largest city in Idaho’s Magic Valley region, it is the commercial hub for businesses serving south-central Idaho and northeastern Nevada. The Snake River Canyon forms Twin Falls’ northern limits. The canyon is home to three waterfalls and the Perrine Bridge, which is sought after by BASE jumpers from all around. It’s also home to Evel Knievel Jump Monument, erected after the daredevil’s unsuccessful attempt at jumping across the canyon on a rocket motorcycle. If you’re into hiking, jumping off bridges, kayaking or driving off cliffs on a rocket motorbike, a few hours on the canyon will give you the rush you’re looking for.
