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

    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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

    6. 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

    7. 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

    8. 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

    9. 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

    10. 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 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!

Our over all experience in Grand Canyon 12 hours bus tour was truly amazing!!! The driver from sweet tours yesterday 12/21/20 (I wish I had his name but Im hoping this review would reach him). He was the most gentleman, sweet, kind, funny and knowledgeable service driver I know. This is the first time I wish I withdraw cash so I could tip him like seriously. He is truly remarkable person! All the drivers and personnel we met during our trip is amazing. The grand canyon itself is a breathtaking experience. Its worth the payment. I would definitely come back next time hopefully with my family. I just had 1 unpleasant memory during our trip in Grand canyon. There is this one person a host in eagle's view sky-deck restaurant in grand canyon. She is not accommodating at all, not friendly, not worthy to be working in front line. Her vibe pisses me off like she is unwilling to attend to guest concern or request. But overall the place is worth to visit Id say the fee is reasonable enough.

This is an absolute must do it tour!!! I had a blast. Bonus if you get Ita as your tour guide...he’s in my opinion the best out there. During covid, I had no concerns travelling with a small group: we had 7 ppl in total and everyone was wearing masks. Ita is knowledgeable and knows the best spots for those pics that are Insta-worthy. Ita also is so impressive with taking professional pics for everyone on the tour: I found that Ita used to be a professional photographer wow! Ita took us to the best photogenic spots at both Zion and Bryce, and even took us to parts of Red Canyon (which is not part of the schedule). Ita has consistently gone above and beyond as our tour guide and I cannot thank him enough. In my opinion, this tour offered by Coexist West Coast is a must do it tour for anyone who wants to see the best of both Zion and Bryce in one day. I will give this tour 11 stars out of 10. Simply the best tour I’ve been on :)

I selected the intense level hike in the Valley of Fire - the Fire Wave Trail. Our guide Sarah made the trip! She was extremely knowledgeable and fun to hike with while accommodating all those in my group who are difficult to please. I would recommend this tour company - fun for all ages with differing hiking expertise. This is my second trip with this company and they did not disappoint! They were on time, communicative throughout the entire process, and professional.

Awesome ride and worth the money! The view was beautiful at night! I thought the height was going to be an issue since I have acrophobia but the pod was really quite and smooth! Buy yourself a drink before you get into the pod and enjoy the view! I will try it next time during daytime.

It was a great experience and our tour guide Jeff was great very informative! He made sure we got to see the highlights of each park and good photo spots we def can’t wait to book our next trip!
