Exploring the Las Vegas Strip
Your fun begins on The Strip, Las Vegas’ main artery and home to bustling casinos, world-class restaurants, ornately designed resorts and over-the-top shows. Take a photo at the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on South Las Vegas Boulevard, then it’s off to start your adventures.
Spend the day diving with sharks at the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, or strap in for the 108-story controlled free fall at SkyJump at the Stratosphere Tower. The ideal spot to catch your breath is the three-level Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, offering signature drinks and its own multi-story visual spectacle.
You can test the waters at the festive LIQUID Pool Lounge at ARIA , or for a more relaxing sojourn, take tea at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Tea Lounge high above The Strip. End your evening with a meal and a great view at Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas.
Beyond Las Vegas Boulevard
Off the Strip, an equal amount of fun awaits you. Head over to Fremont Street, and try the SlotZilla Zip Lines under the Viva Vision video canopy of the Fremont Street Experience. Passengers on the upper line “fly” over all the excitement of Fremont Street below.
Besides the shops, dazzling lights and nightly shows, the D Las Vegas Hotel features comedy magic and murder-mystery theater. Plus, its Andiamo Italian Steakhouse has been voted Las Vegas’ best.
Other Downtown Las Vegas favorites include Longbar at The D, the pool deck at the Downtown Grand, the intimate Downtown Cocktail Room, the beer garden patio at Park on Fremont, and the Prohibition-era feel of Commonwealth.
You’ll find live music at The Front Yard at Ellis Island Casino or Downtown Container Park (which also features open-air shopping and dining).
Back closer to the Strip, Southern hospitality and cuisine await at The Orleans, while The Oyster Bar at Palace Station serves up live-action seafood prepared before your eyes available 24/7.
Nature and Culture
Take a break from the bright lights and visit nearby Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area for hiking, biking and climbing adventures, and then unwind with a spa treatment at the Red Rock Resort.
Las Vegas also offers access to whitewater rafting at the Grand Canyon, zip lining in Boulder City, year-round golf and dune buggy tours through the sand dunes.
Check out the Neon Museum to tour the signs that once adorned Las Vegas hotels and casinos. Also sure to capture your interest are the Mob Museum, officially the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement; the National Atomic Testing Museum and Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art.
Las Vegas earns its nickname as the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”
