10 Must-Sees in Vegas

10 Must-Sees  in Vegas

The very mention of Las Vegas stimulates images of extravagant pool parties, exciting circus acts and gambling. When visiting, it would be easy to get all caught up in the stereotypical frenzy and miss out on some of the best experiences.

Depending on how long you plan to stay, one trip may not be enough to fully explore and discover beautiful gems within Sin City. However, even for your first time in the desert city, there are a couple of must-sees that would be a shame to miss on your tour. As you write down your travel itinerary, there’s what should be at the top of your list.

The ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ Sign

Designed by Betty Willis in 1959, this 25ft tall iconic sign has since been duplicated on all kinds of souvenirs for visitors. It’s quite an attraction and a great place to take photos to remember the experiences.

There are usually queues of eager visitors waiting to take pictures at the sign, and thus, you might have to stand in line. A modern 80-foot replica of the sign has been erected in downtown Las Vegas, at the opposite end of the Strip. It is definitely worth your time if you want to integrate the old and the new.

The Las Vegas Strip

The Strip is no doubt one of the most coveted spots for businesses who want to be at the center of Vegas activities. Of course, the biggest attraction of the Strip is its casino resorts, which are a delight to visit, especially if you are a fan of playing real casino slot machines. It will be a golden chance for you to interact with the physical slot machine cabinets to compare the experience with the internet-based counterparts or perhaps take a shot at the table and card games if that is what tickles your fancy.

Part of the Vegas fun is the long walks as you hop from place to place, and the Las Vegas Boulevard is no different. Comfortable shoes are a must-have, but you should understand that it is not practically possible to walk the Strip and see everything in one day.

Neon Museum

Neon signs are in the very fabric of Las Vegas history, and therefore, to preserve this history, the Neon Museum was founded in 1996. The museum exhibits iconic Vegas signs from well back in the day, inspiring contemporary neon artists. The signs light up at night to partially light up The Strip. This is basically a trip down history or memory lane, depending on the visitors, and on top of that, the museum will help you appreciate the extraordinary level of dedication that transformed the city into what it is today.

Fremont Street

The second most famous street in the Las Vegas area is Fremont Street. Fremont offers a variety of attractions, including some crazy zip lines, like the 850 feet long Slotzilla Zipline, street concerts and light shows. There are several museums worth checking out if you find yourself on Fremont Street. Moreover, the Downtown Container Park is a perfect place for families with children or for adults looking to let loose.

Red Rock Canyon

After days or hours in the crowded city, you may want to retreat to the Red Rock Canyon, where you can engage in activities such as camping, rock climbing, hiking, biking or simply enjoy the scenic loop drive along the canyon.

Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Depending on what time of the year you visit, this 14,000 square feet conservatory is always changing its displays between seasons. During the Chinese New Year, spring, summer, fall and winter seasons, the 120-person Bellagio Conservatory horticulture staff creates a full-blown floral production.

Bellagio fountain shows are a bonus within the same establishment, well worth witnessing in person. There are scheduled times for the shows, and if you can, you should sit back and enjoy the magnificent displays.

Fall of Atlantis Show

Located at Caesars Palace Forum Shops, the Fall of Atlantis is among the few free productions you will behold in the magnificent city. Featuring animatronic figures replaying the stories of old Atlantis and how it came to fall, the lifelike characters fight for control of Atlantis in this exciting production.

The Strat Hotel Skypod and Thrill Rides

Home to the Big Shot, Insanity, X Scream and the controlled free-fall SkyJump, adrenaline junkies should expect to have insane thrilling experiences. The more docile visitors can enjoy a 360-view of the Las Vegas Valley from the observation tower and, of course, opportunities to take phenomenal pictures of the surroundings and selfies.

Park MGM

You’re probably wondering why we have a hotel on the list after having mentioned them above. This is not your ordinary hotel – it is the largest single hotel in the United States with 6,852 rooms. Featured in big movies like Oceans 11 and TV shows like The Amazing Race and The Great White Hype, the MGM Grand continues to be an iconic destination for visitors.

Whether you want to chase jackpot prizes in the casino, party hard or you just want to have a good time with friends and family while on vacation to wind down after months of hard work.
