Going to Las Vegas? Read This Article Before You Leave
Las Vegas, Nevada is great destination. It doesn’t matter if you’re a high roller or lounger; the city will have something to suit everyone’s needs. For example, foodies will enjoy dining on dishes made from top chefs or sampling the many buffets. See if Lady Luck will be on your side at one of Vegas’ premier casinos. Or buy a ticket to a spectacular show with enough sizzle and spark to light up the Las Vegas strip. You can also fish at Lake Las Vegas and visit the famous Neon Museum, where old signs get a new lease on life, or say hello to the sharks at Mandalay Bay Shark Reef. Read on to learn more about what you can do on your Las Vegas vacation.
Top Las Vegas Attractions to See
From Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat to riding the Coney Island—style New York—New York roller coaster (has a 144-foot dive and 360-degree somersault), you’ll have plenty to do in Las Vegas. You may want to hike one of the many hiking trails in and around Las Vegas, too. It’s a great opportunity to connect with nature and see the ochre-color rocks, desert flora and fauna. The best trails are in the Red Rock National Conservation Area. Bring plenty of water with you because it gets hot in the desert. For a birds-eye and awe inspiring view of Vegas, take a helicopter tour.
What’s the point of taking a Vegas vacation if you’re not going to check out the casinos? Whether you stay at Harrah’s Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, or another hotel and resort, try your hand at games such as roulette, black jack, craps, or poker. Play the slots, and you may win big!
The Mob Museum
A visit to Las Vegas would not be complete without seeing The Mob Museum, which sits in the 1933 former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office downtown. The museum explores the mob world by explaining to visitors how the Mafia operated, how law enforcement brought down local mobsters,
and what happened to wise guys who were caught or sent to jail. Highlights include bricks from the wall of the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, and a mock electric chair that ended the lives of mobsters.
Keep in mind that “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” is an attitude that most everyone follows. The number of trendy lounges and high-profile nightclubs grows each year. You may even bump into A-list celebrities at one of them. Many new clubs have gambling, so if you get tired of kicking up your heels on the dance floor; take a seat in front of a slot machine and cool off.
