The land of so much to do and so little time to do it in. Las Vegas
Everywhere you turn, there’s going to be something bright and shiny that grabs your attention. We know how many distractions there are, so we’ve gone ahead and waded through the tourist traps so you don’t have to.
So besides gambling, here are 10 Las Vegas attractions you don’t want to miss:
1.Take a photo at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada sign
If you don’t take a picture here, it’s like you’ve never been to Vegas. Created in 1959, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign is an iconic symbol of Sin City. People once risked their lives running through traffic to pose next to the famous sign, located on the Strip near Mandalay Bay.
2.Eat food, glorious food
Las Vegas is a foodie’s died-and-gone-to-heaven-dream-come-true, so bite the bullet and see what all the fuss is about. Book a fancy-schmancy dinner in one of the restaurants that are a lineup of who’s who in celebrity chefs. There are so many, it’s like reading their names out of a celebrity phone book: Andrés, Batali, De Laurentiis, Fieri, Gagnaire, Mina, Puck, Ramsay, Robuchon, Savoy – you get the picture, now make the reservation.

3. Take Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour
If you want your trip to Vegas to be unique and memorable don’t forget to take Helicopter Tour to Grand Canyon. It’s an amazing experience worth every penny. According to most people this is a MUST DO while in Vegas.
4. Jump off the Stratosphere
Conquer your fear of heights and your fear of falling while earning a ton of street cred on SkyJump Las Vegas at the Stratosphere. After suiting up in a branded jumpsuit and harness, you will ride an elevator to Level 108 of the tallest building west of the Mississippi, then step off a platform 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip on this controlled free fall.

5. Enjoy a sunset gondola ride
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie…oh sorry, don’t mind us. We’re just floating along, lost in the moonlight, enjoying an Italian serenade. Venice/Vegas same thing, right? OK maybe not. But where else can you see the glittery lights of the Las Vegas Strip in a boat? You’ve got to take a gondola ride at the Venetian at least once.
6. “Hang out” at a toptional pool club (see what we did there)
This one might be fairly self-explanatory but it is definitely smirk-worthy. Vegas pool clubs where you can find or be one of the bare-bosomed girls include Moorea at Mandalay Bay, Bare at The Mirage, Venus Pool Club at Caesars Palace, the Sapphire Pool and Naked at Artisan.
7. Watch the Bellagio Fountains
One of the flagship attractions in Vegas, it’s a huge fountain show perfectly timed to 30 different songs from the Rat Pack to Celine Dion, and everyone in between. For the first time in history, the Bellagio has even added an EDM show created by DJ powerhouse Tiësto. Have you ever seen 1,214 water jets pulsate 460 feet into the air to untz untz untz? Neither has anyone else! If you really want a bird’s-eye view of the Bellagio Fountain show, get yourself a pair of tickets to the top of the Eiffel Tower. You won’t be able to hear the music from the observation deck but the view is out-of-this-world.
8. Spring for one of the Las Vegas shows
It’s no secret that Vegas has world-class entertainment. But you really haven’t experienced all that we have to offer until you’ve seen one of the Las Vegas shows. We’ve got what you want – from mind-boggling acrobats to big name entertainers and even a whole lot of nakedness (probably from both you and the show). If you’re one of the lucky ones who gets pulled out of the audience, you’ll even become one of the stars. Move over Broadway, ’cause our productions are unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
We thought about you a little further and this is not an ad, this is our special promotion for you, and here we offer you to Save $35.50 on VEGAS! The Show tickets
9. Stumble through the Fremont Street Experience
A whole new meaning to “shock and awe,” the Fremont Street Experience is a lot different than you may remember it. This is the land of ultimate debauchery where the once glittery and glamorous meets the just plain weird. Lined with vintage hotels, restaurants and bars spanning the four-block corridor and covered by a giant digital screen, this downtown Las Vegas destination is the ultimate block party. There is a lot to do and see, including shopping at specialty kiosks, riding zip lines and watching free concerts and costumed buskers of various levels of sobriety.
10. Be a rock star for a day
Unleash your inner rocker on stage with real rock musicians at Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp. You can jam with select musicians who have recorded with bands like KISS, Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Heart, Mötley Crüe, YES, Quiet Riot, Bad Company and more. They’ll work with you to make your recording session a smash hit by helping you customize a music genre and song selection for your skill level, and a musician to work with. There are five different packages to choose from or you can customize your own. When it’s all over, you’ll take home a video and photo of your performance because let’s be honest, your friends are never going to believe you unless there’s proof. Rock on!
