Welcome to Las Vegas – the original sin city. It’s an adult’s Disneyland where you can play at doing anything, seeing everything, and being anyone you like. Las Vegas is an open-all-hours fairground where you can experience everything from swimming with sharks to flirting with Lady Luck.
Although it’s world famous as a gambler’s paradise, there’s much more to Vegas than luck and gambling. Indie Travel Guides Las Vegas by Lenore Greiner reveals often-hidden, alternative Vegas experiences that demonstrate that Las Vegas truly has something for everyone.
Top ten things to do in Las Vegas – These are the top ten travellers’ highlights that you simply must not miss.
Of course no trip to Vegas would be complete without attending a Vegas show, gambling in one of the many Strip casinos or visiting the chichi clubs. Do a Prince Harry at a pool club or rub shoulders with the rich and famous at the exclusive Strip nightclubs. And when it’s your time to have a flutter, consult the Indie Travel Guide to find out where to get professional table games lessons.
Take a spa (choose from Egyptian, Middle Eastern, or Ayurvedic) or browse one of the world’s best shopping precincts alongside a full-size replica of Venice’s Grand Canal. Or you could swim with the fishes — but not as the mob intended — at one of many Las Vegas pool complexes. If expending adrenalin is your thing, don’t miss out on climbing the magnificent Red Rocks or jet boating at Lake Mead, in the shadow of the impressive Hoover Dam.
Once you’ve exhausted your own take on the Top ten traveller highlights, discover a different side of Vegas with these curated alternative itineraries:
Days out in Las Vegas – Discover the history behind the development of the world’s first atomic bomb at the National Atomic Testing Museum, bask in the neon glow at the Museum of Neon, or learn how to load a gun at the Mob Museum. If you appreciate fine art, you’ll enjoy the installations at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art – home to a number of paintings by Monet, Pissarro and Boudin.
Las Vegas for kids – Yes, it is possible to have a family holiday in sin city! You could spend some time with the kids at one of the many adventure parks, or ride one of the many rides, such as the Manhattan Roller Coaster or the Stratosphere. Your kids won’t want to miss the 28,000 square feet of M&Ms at M&M World Las Vegas, even if you could take it or leave it.
