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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

Planning Your Las Vegas 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!

What people are saying about Las Vegas

Awesome experience surrounded by majestic beauty

Mike Stone and David, our tour guide, are the best!! Small group of 14 which I really liked and everyone was so friendly we got along so well. David's knowledge of Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and other surroundings just amazing. Highly recommend taking any tours with David.

We had a very good time. Highly recommended!

Our guide Antonio and our driver Mike did a very good job keeping us informed and engaged. It was a long day, but the Grand Canyon was breathtaking!

Definitely worth it! Incredible experience. Awesome servis. Many stops

It was awesome from the beginning to the end. Our tour guide Stephany was awesome. She told us many interesting facts about places which we visited, but also about places which we only passed by and saw from the bus. She was kind and made everybody to feel good on the trip. Also our driver on this trip Evelio, he was funny and did really great job. We got also smaller breakfast, simple but bigger lunch, and water was available for the whole time. And the Grand Canyon? You need to see it!

Great experience when visiting Las Vegas

I did a tour around the west coast of the US, but we only made photo stops when visiting other canyons. So I wanted to actually walk around and climb in the beautiful landscape. That's why I booked this tour from Las Vegas and I wasn't disappointed. We had great fun doing the tour and I would definitely recommend it. We chose the most difficult tour - even though I never climbed before - and it was a challenge. I could manage it but aching muscles and bruises included if you're clumsy like me. Fell down three times but the others in the group did very well. So just me. Great experience and something I wouldn't want to miss. Valley of Fire is beautiful.
