There is so much more to Las Vegas than gambling. Do you enjoy great restaurants, beautiful hotels, amazing shows, good shopping, fun night life, amusement rides and people watching. If so, then Vega is for you.
For years, Vegas was known for it’s buffets. Over the years this has changed and it’s now become a foodie paradise with restaurants by celebrity chefs like Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsey, Guy Fieri and Emeril Lagasse. There are restaurants for every different type of food you can think of. You might leave with an empty wallet, but you will definitely leave witha full stomach.
The strip is lined with one beautiful hotel after another. You could spend days just walking from hotel to hotel and never get bored. The hotels will transport you to places like New York City, Paris and Venice. Each hotel has something special and they all try to be more over the top than the next.
One of my favorite hotels in Vegas is the Bellagio. Outside the hotel they have a beautiful fountain show set to music that starts at noon each day and runs every 30 minutes and then starting at 8pm it runs every 15 minutes up until midnight. Inside the hotel is just as beautiful. They do a wonderful job of decorating for each season with these beautiful flowers.
Some of the hotels also have wonderful shopping. Imagine shopping along the Venice canal in the Venetian or in the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace. There are also all sorts of other activities in the hotels, like Lions in the MGM hotel.
For the thrill seeker there are amusement rides available. Like this ride that is just one of the rides available on the top of the Stratosphere hotel. Not up for the thrill of the ride, it’s definitely worth going up top anyways for the view alone.
Other entertainment options include the High Roller ferris wheel, multiple different Cirque du Soleil shows, concerts by multiple big name performers and lots of nightclubs where you can dance the night away.
If you aren’t into the party scene Vegas is still a beautiful place to be at night. The hotels and casinos light up the strip and it’s a great time place for people watching. This is just a few options of things to do in Las Vegas, there really is so much to see. What are some of your favorite things to do while there?
