Things To Do In Las Vegas (Other Than Gambling)
Not interested in testing your luck while in Las Vegas? No problem! A boring, tea-sipping Brit like myself still had plenty of fun when I visited Las Vegas earlier last year!
Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is famous around the globe for their gambling scene. What if, perhaps, you were looking to take a break from the casinos? There are no doubt plenty of places and sites to divert your attention. Here’s what we recommend:
Theatre & Performances
Vegas is well known for their colourful and enticing shows. With over 200 to choose from, you’re sure to find something that suits your fancy. Prices vary anywhere from $40-$200, making a show doable for any budget. Put on your Sunday’s best and check out some of Las Vegas’ best entertainment!
Ride the High Roller at The LINQ: Rather than sit around and compare bingo sites with your travel buddy, give yourself a chance to ride the world’s largest observation wheel. At a mega 550 ft (168 m), this attraction leaves you with jaw dropping panorama views of Sin City that you don’t want to miss, just be sure to have your camera ready!
If you’re feeling adventurous, or simply want a view from the top of Vegas, this is the spot for you! Bungee jump off the Stratosphere or ride any one of their thrill rides for a true up-in-the-air experience. If a thrill ride just isn’t your cup of tea, hang out at the observation deck or grab a bite to eat at the restaurant that does a full 360 turn every 100 minutes.
Shark Reef Aquarium (at Mandalay Bay)
Why deprive the kids of some more travel games during your vacation, take them to see the Shark Reef Aquarium. There, they will be able to feast their eyes on 14 exhibits, one of which includes a 1.3 million gallon shipwreck with a nearly 360-degree view visible through an acrylic tunnel. Continue feeding their senses at the Touch Pool where they can touch a wide variety of sharks, horseshoe crabs or rays.
Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon is not the place for you if you’re looking to join new bingo sites. Pictures just don’t do enough justice to the view you get from seeing the Grand Canyon in person. Take a helicopter ride from the Las Vegas Airport, visit the Skywalk, or simply go on a quick day hike. The magnificent view is one-of-a-kind and a visit is a guaranteed unforgettable experience.
Red Rock Canyon
Red Rock Canyon is a jump, skip and a hop away from the Last Vegas Strip, located just 17 miles west. Visitors can enjoy horseback riding, hiking or rock climbing, just to name a few. This is a must for the active traveler!
If you’re the adventurous traveler or not, Las Vegas surely has something and somewhere that you are guaranteed to enjoy. No matter your age or taste, Las Vegas offers a diverse makeup of entertainment for adults and children alike!
