Las Vegas is known for its strip of extravagant casinos and resorts, enticing travelers from all over the world to try their hand at gambling. You can stay, dine, shop, and gamble all in one resort if you wish. And for those more keen on family time, outdoor adventures, and finding new heights, Vegas offers that too.
Downtown Vegas & Fremont Street
Downtown is where Las Vegas got its start. See the famed Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino and the Neon Museum that features over six acres of neon signs from old casinos. Fremont Street Experience is the five-block entertainment district in the heart of downtown. Here you’ll find everything from ziplines to the Mob Museum to a shark tank.
Hoover Dam & Beyond
Did you know Hoover Dam is only about an hour from Las Vegas? It’s so close you don’t want to miss it. It’s easy to book a tour by bus or helicopter or just drive yourself. A little bit further, but well worth the drive, is the Grand Canyon. It’s easy to book a tour here, too. Death Valley National Park is also nearby. Don’t miss out on all the natural and man-made wonders around Vegas.
From majestic helicopter rides and skydiving to the Stratosphere’s extreme thrills, Las Vegas will make you soar. Or you can watch stunt performers at Cirque du Soleil and similar dazzling shows take the leap in your place!
And there are always free things to do in Las Vegas as well, so let’s pack and go!
