Top 10 things to do 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!

Las Vegas Helicopter Tours

Las Vegas Helicopter Tours

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

Death Valley

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!

Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Strip

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!

Fountains of Bellagio

Fountains of Bellagio

The choreographed fountains in front of the Bellagio hotel "dance" every 15 minutes from 8pm till midnight (and every 30 in the afternoons)!

Mirage Volcano

Mirage Volcano

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?

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

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!

Hoover Dam Bypass

Hoover Dam Bypass

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.

Planning Your Las Vegas Visit

When to go?

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.

How to get around?

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.

How to dress?

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.

How to win?

You're on your own there! Good luck!

What people are saying about Las Vegas

This was such an amazing tour! We were picked up from our hotel at 5:50am then one stop to pick up another couple. There were 6 of us total and the van was quite comfortable. This van does accommodate 12 people and if it would of been full I’d have to say it wouldn’t be great. We were required to wear masks inside the van and everyone complied. We were given a snack bag that included granola bars, cookies, chips etc. must of been 6 or 7 items. Water and other drinks were included as well. Bryce and Zion were amazing. Our driver Adam was so awesome and took pics of us everywhere. Lunch at Subway was included between parks and a Adam told us we could order whatever we wanted. We chose to get in the car so we didn’t waste time. We were dropped off at our hotel at 6:30pm which we were happy as it was our last night in Vegas. Now if your looking to do hikes you would need a few day tour but if you just want to admire the beauty and see these amazing parks I would definitely recommend.

it was an amazing trip, Grand Canyon is beautiful and the bus ride to Canyon was definitely entertaining. We were dissapointed because we were suppose tour the Hoover Dam aswell, was part of the bus tour and thought that we would get some type discount, but we didnt, that was the only negative. Our bus driver name was Anthony, he was AWESOME!!!!

Trip was pretty awesome and the bus ride to and from was probably the most entertaining part. Our bus driver’s name was Dirk and he was a wealth of information and spoke the majority of the ride to the Grand Canyon. Well timed stops and he even safely slowed down enough so we get a quick glimpse of the Hoover Dam.

It was fantastic!! We had two teens and 2 adults and it was everyone’s favorite adventure of the entire trip!! The burgers after we’re great as well!! Our guides were well versed in the terrain and very friendly and kind!! Thanks for a great experience!!

Bruce was our tour guide and he was awesome. He’s very humorous and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the night tour bus when you come to Vegas. The price is reasonable and the tour is exciting and fun.
