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

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, 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

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

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

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!

Las Vegas Motor Speedway

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

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

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!

Hoover Dam

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.

Stratosphere Tower

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!

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

One of the best guided hikes I've been on!

This hike stands out beyond others for a couple reasons. First, our guide Adam was a fountain of knowledge relative to the history, animal life, and plant life in the Valley of Fire. Second, Adam provided excellent guidance concerning hiking techniques and procedures ranging from easy routes to the strenuous options. Moreover, Adam not only pushed those of us who wanted more difficult routes, but paid particular attention to our hydration while urging the team to continuously consume snacks to maintain energy levels. We will be requesting Adam again for our next hike in a few weeks when our son arrives home for college.

Courteous, friendly. Enjoyed a great evening.

Every aspect was enjoyable. Driver/cook was friendly and engaging. And, a great cook! Ranch staff were kind and concerned our experience was a good one. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would do it again.

Death Valley 4x4 Tour from Las Vegas Reviewed by Maggie, 10/19/2016

Awesome guides and awesome scenery while riding on awesome vehicles.

My travel companion and I had a great time and completely worth the small fee for a half day trip

Really enjoyed the experience. Felt in safe hands and had good views.

Seeing the Grand Canyon from the air was certainly the best way to experience this spectacular wonder of the world. Even though I was sitting in a back middle seat I still had a good view and the pilot made sure that I sat by the window on the return journey thus making sure everyone was given the best opportunity to take pictures. The pilot was very professional and made me feel extremly safe. The helicopter ride was definitely our favourite experience of Las Vegas.
