5 Things to do in Las Vegas
5-Hyde indoor/ outdoor nightclub
If you have heard of Las Vegas, then you have probably heard about the fountains at the Bellagio. One of the top tourist attractions on the Las Vegas strip. This amazing water show shoots water 460 feet into the air and is choregraphed to music and lights. Designed to mesmerize all who watch this is a must-see attraction but can be really hard to get near unless you stake out your spot about 30 minutes before the show begins. This is where Hyde comes in.
Located inside the Bellagio and directly BEHIND these breathtaking fountains is Hyde nightclub. Hyde features floor to ceiling windows overlooking the fountains and an outdoor patio. This is by far the best view of the show. Go early before the crowds come and you can enjoy a magical time that many visitors don’t even know about!
4- Red Rock Canyon
Tired of casinos? Spend a day getting back to nature at Red Rock Canyon. This scenic dessert park offers a 13-mile drive through the canyon with places to pull off and take photos. You can also hike the trails for an up-close look at local plants and maybe even some wildlife. The park offers camping, a welcome center with maps and guides, as well as a gift shop.
3- Mandalay Bay Beach
A beach in the middle of a desert? Yep! Mandalay Bay has one of the top pools in the world according to many top 10 lists. This 11-acre water playground consists of 3 pools, a lazy river, 2,600 TONS of white sand, and a wave pool. There is also a stage where they offer live concerts all summer long. You do not have to be a guest of the hotel to rent one of the 100 cabanas, day beds, or bungalows but the cost is not cheap. If you are alright with spreading out a towel on the beach you can go for the much more affordable option of just buying a day pass.
2- High Roller Observation Wheel
Across the strip from Ceasers you will find the Linq Promenade. The Linq Promenade is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment center and located at the back sits the towering High Roller Observation wheel. Standing 550 feet tall and 520 feet in diameter this is the largest observation wheel in the USA. This ride offers the most spectacular views of the Las Vegas strip you can find. Bonus points for the air conditioned cars if you are going in the summer months!
1- The Freemont Street Experience
Located in downtown Las Vegas you will find Freemont Street. Here you will find several of the old time casinos like The Golden Nugget. What makes Freemont street our number one pick for things to do in Las Vegas? The Freemont Street Experience is a light show featuring over 1 million lights set to music which is played over a 550,000-watt speaker system. If that is still not enough for you, how about zip lining under the canopy of lights and over the huge crowd below? You can choose from a 7 story seated zipline that will take you across two blocks of the busy Freemont Street or an 11 story “super-man style” zip line that allows you to travel across 5 blocks and landing you in the city’s most historic casino the Golden Gate. After the zip line enjoy free music at one of several stages set up throughout the area and get your picture taken with one of the many street performers. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this.
