Aside from taking a picture of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, which is a rite of passage, here are the best attractions in Las Vegas to visit at least once in your lifetime during your vegas vacation:
Running from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere casino, the Strip can either be walked or seen by tour bus. There’s flashing neon, amazing sights, amazing food, and so much more to do. Hit up the famous casinos, like the Bellagio, Paris, The Luxor, and the Venetian before hopping on the 24/7 available Deuce bus, which takes you to other locations like the Fremont Street Experience.
Though visiting the Strip is a must, the number one attraction gracing this long road would be the Bellagio Fountains. Every 15-30 minutes, these glorious fountains put on a show like no other. Since the show is complimentary, you can watch it a number of times. Of course, once you’ve seen the fountains, you’ll also want to check out Bellagio’s list of attractions, such as Cirque du Soleil, spas, and restaurants.
Bright lights, brighter city. Las Vegas is famous for the flashing lights and neon signs, so why not learn more about those riveting displays at the Neon Museum? Conveniently located near the Mob Museum (another must-see), you can visit the boneyard of Las Vegas neon signs. There’s over 200 pieces of signage from casinos and beyond to feast your eyes upon.
Just because it’s Vegas doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of cash. A multitude of free attractions await, such as the Mirage volcano, the Flamingo Hotel wildlife habitat (full of real flamingos), the circus acts at Circus Circus, the Bellagio Conservatory, the 117,000-gallon aquarium in Silverton Casino, the Ethel M Chocolates Botanical Cactus Garden, Christmas illuminations at M&M’s World and Hershey’s Chocolate world, and much more to discover.
What’s Vegas without booze? Every single day comes with wine tours, beer festivals, cocktail samplings, and more. Plus, there’s annual events so massive that some people build entire itineraries around them, such as UNLVino, which has a champagne night, sake night, and grand tasting of expensive spirits and food from the best restaurants in Las Vegas. There’s also the 4-day cooking and drinking showcase called Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit or the Great Vegas Festival of Beer by Motley Brews to keep you well hydrated.
There’s a bunch of high rise buildings in Las Vegas, but nothing beats riding the world’s tallest observation wheel, the High Roller. Standing at 550 feet tall, the ride takes 30 minutes to complete and gives you an absolutely astounding view of Vegas. If you want to splurge, purchase the Happy Half Hour package, supplying you with a personal bartender in your cabin.
It doesn’t matter where you go in your Vegas vacation or what you decide to do. Every attraction is considered a jackpot here.
