Top Tours & Activities in Las Vegas
Call it Sin City if you want, but there's no denying that the Entertainment Capital of the World has a unique allure. After all, it took a lot more than seedy clichés to make Las Vegas one of the world's leading tourist destinations!
Vegas isn't a place to be enjoyed on the cheap! Set the tone for extravagance with Helicopter tours of the city's kitsch architecture and surrounding desert landscapes.
Death Valley, the hottest corner of North America, may be ominously named but its beauty is quite humbling, and it even blooms in spring. Just bring plenty of water!
The Las Vegas Strip boasts many of the world's largest hotels and casinos, all hosting their own dazzling shows. Take the scenic route by limo!
The choreographed fountains in front of the Bellagio hotel "dance" every 15 minutes from 8pm till midnight (and every 30 in the afternoons)!
The huge volcano in front of the Mirage hotel is another attraction in the same vein. It erupts on the hour from 8pm till midnight and, oddly, smells like pina coladas!
If gambling in the casinos isn't enough to set your pulse racing then how about zipping around the thrilling Motor Speedway in a luxury sports car?
You might be able to see the canyon's breathtaking red rock formations from your hotel window but getting up close to the Red Rock Canyon is a must for avid hikers, rock climbers, and mountain bikers!
The Hoover Dam Bypass is actually called the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, but neither name really does justice to this spectacular feat of engineering!
Did somebody say feat of engineering? The Hoover Dam's art-deco design is impressive inside and out, although the exterior's breathtaking enormity is truly something to behold.
The tallest freestanding observation tower in the US offers the best views in Las Vegas, as well as a revolving restaurant and four terrifying amusement rides!
Unless you have a high tolerance for heat, plan your trip either side of summer. If you want to avoid the crowds then visit during the week.
From cabs and double-decker buses to helicopters and the Las Vegas monorail, the city has no shortage of ways to travel. Just remember that everything gravitates towards the Strip.
Women shouldn't have a problem but male dress codes differ for nightclubs so it's worth checking them online. Generally speaking though, a shirt and decent shoes go a long way.
You're on your own there! Good luck!

What people are saying about Las Vegas
This was an awesome experience and so glad we did this tour. Pawn Stars is our favorite show and Counting Cars is 1A so meeting Rick at the pawn shop was a thrill. Unfortunately Danny wasn't available. We got to meet the pawn experts Jeremy at the card shop and Johnny at the toy store and they were so nice and we got their pictures and autographs. Seeing Danny's car collection was amazing.
This tour is well worth your investment. Our guide, John was a wealth of information not only about Hoover Dam, but the entire region which really enhanced the tour. You have access to the lower dam that is only available through this tour group. The small group of eight was nice too (other tours I felt like we were herded like cattle). John knew the best views, options, etc. He gave us that insider plus you wish you had on other trips, activities (if you only knew). Excellent tour - thank you.
it was amazing, fantastic view, exceptional service and the food was to die for!
The trip was also fantastic!! Nice accommodations. Friendly tour guide, Roberto. The tour Antelope canyon tour guide, Leo is the best. Overall the best tour we had in the US.
The cultural and historical information was very interesting! Rick is a great guide with an obvious love and passion for the area! I will be back to visit some of the places we visited such as the LV Natural History Museum. The walk was also easy and the tour was also casual and fun!
