Las Vegas is one of the most exciting tourist destinations in the world which is why
visitors keep coming back for more. Data from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor
Authority reveals that there were 32,230,600 visitors back in 2021. These figures
show that the City of Entertainment is still a top choice for global travellers. The city is beautiful with many modern luxury casino resorts with top-notch entertainment and a variety of outdoor activities. It is true that it is located in the middle of the desert, but is the oasis in the desert. If you are going to visit Vegas, here are some of the best things to do to get an all-in experience.
1. Play Some Poker
Las Vegas is home to some of the most beautiful casinos in the world, and poker is the game that built the city. The Bellagio features a stylish 7,000 square feet space with
40 tables and is famous for hosting the annual World Poker Tour. The Bally’s and
Paris casinos are also popular places to sit and play poker at as they are the same place where the 2022 World Series of Poker Main Event was recently held. In fact, this year’s main event was the second-largest in history with 8,663 contestants. Playing poker in any of these famous casinos will surely make you feel the prestige of playing in the same place where the greatest poker players battled it out.
2. Hike At Red Rock Canyon
Vegas isn’t all about gaming though, and there are lots to do away from the poker
tables. One of the best things to do in Las Vegas after you’ve left a casino is to
explore the great outdoors. Located about 25 miles west of the Strip is the beautiful
Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area. Red Rock is one of the best kept secrets of
Vegas that usually only locals know about. Visitors often go to this open area to enjoy a day of hiking along scenic trails or relax by having a picnic surrounded by beautiful mountains. Since it’s a conservation area, you can be sure to see rare animals like the desert bighorn sheep, various bird species, and even the Gila monster.
3. Party On Fremont Street
The party never stops in Vegas, and one of the best places to party at is off of the Strip at Fremont Street. Located in the downtown area, this hidden place consists of five blocks of tiny shops, cozy restaurants and lively people. Every night, musical
performances are set up on the stage for people to enjoy and dance to. There is no
charge to enter Fremont Street which is probably one of the reasons this place gets
packed, especially on weekends. The signature feature of this extravaganza is the Viva Vision show which is a spectacular light show made up of 49,300,000 LED lamps
displayed on a gigantic screen disguised as the canopy covering Fremont Street. This
state-of-the-art technology will surely make you feel flushed all night long while
partying on Fremont Street.
4. Ride The High Roller Observation Wheel
Go sky-high and ride the High Roller Observation Wheel and see one of the best
views of the entire Strip. The observation wheel is located in the heart of the Strip at
The LINQ Hotel. The diameter of this giant wheel is 520 feet and it’s 550 feet tall
from ground to the highest cabin. The ride takes approximately 30 minutes from start to finish, which is plenty of time to take all the photos you want. If you time it
properly, you could catch a glimpse of the sunset and see the neon lights of Vegas
turning on that heralds the nightlife that Vegas is known for.
Las Vegas is an amazing city with so many things to do. Perhaps this is the reason
many people come here with a bucket list to check off. Try these things out and
experience Vegas like never before! We hope these suggestions will help you, and for
