Las Vegas is famous for its casinos and on-the-spot weddings, but the Entertainment Capital of the World has something just as fun for every travel style. Next time you think about visiting Vegas, add something more you to the adventure and make it the experience of a lifetime.
Thrills on Thrills
Just being in Vegas is already exciting enough but if you need more thrills, then make sure you try some of these heart-stopping activities while you’re there. At Stratosphere, you can take advantage of four rides atop Las Vegas’ highest hotel—more than 800 feet in the air. At the Richard Petty Driving Experience, you can feed your inner speed demon from behind the wheel of a 600-horsepower NASCAR vehicle as you compete at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. If you want to multi-task, get an incomparable view of the city while traveling 33mph on the VooDoo Zip Line.
Shop ‘til You Drop
Some of us love to shop when we travel. As expected, there are many places in Las Vegas where you can spend the money you just won. Get fancy at the Grand Canal Shoppes, an upscale shopping and dining complex set against a Venice-inspired backdrop. Container Park is good place to stop for a glass of wine and explore the new collection of start-up retail shops housed in repurposed shipping containers. If you weren’t so lucky at the casinos, you can still get great deals at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets!
A healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be paused just because you’re on vacation. The Stay Well Suite at the MGM Grand feature vitamin C-infused shower water and air purification. Vegan offerings at Simply Pure will impress any foodie, and you can always take part in one of the many exercise classes in the city (like yoga with dolphins at The Mirage). If you’re up for something more intense, rent a car and escape to the hiking trails at Red Rock Canyon.
Keep It Old School
Las Vegas as we know it has only been around since the ‘50s, meaning history buffs can still experience some of the strip’s original sites. For example: you can book a stay at the Golden Nugget, which was originally built in 1946 and is one of the oldest hotel-casinos in the city (don’t worry, they recently renovated). And if you want a guided tour of sin city’s colorful past, you can visit the two-acre Neon Museum and see more than 150 of Las Vegas’ retired neon signs.
All of this and more is waiting for your future vacation to Las Vegas.
