Las Vegas is the epitome of fun and entertainment. More than just a place, it is also an invitation to have the absolute best time of your life. This resort city is famous the world over for offering the best in dining, entertainment, accommodation, shopping and gambling. The most popular attractions are the hotels and casinos on the Boulevard and more specifically, the Las Vegas Strip. A whopping 19 of the largest hotels in the world are located in this area which makes it an awe-inspiring architectural attraction, especially when all the buildings are lit up at night. The water fountains of Bellagio are an iconic sight that has been featured in movies and shows but nothing compares to watching the waterworks and flash lights live.
You can have a great time in Vegas without spending too much. The comedy club Mac King has an affordable full ticket price and you can pay 60% less by taking advantage of the coupons given away by showgirls within the casino or by getting free entrance bundled in with certain drinks. Another place for comedic genius is the matinees in Defending Caveman which are significantly cheaper than the evening shows but just as good. Fremont Street is an ideal place to visit during the weekends because tribute bands play for free on two street stages. Sometimes popular artists take over and give the audience amazing free concerts.
There are a lot of opportunities to save in Vegas because some ticket outlets offer seats for half the original price. Keep an eye out for special promos and discounts or ask around for cheaper deals.
If you are willing to splurge on shows and attractions then buckle up for the lavish first class seats of La Rêve, a spectacular water show that pampers guests with sparkling champagne, ganache covered strawberries, and video feeds that show backstage and under-water perspectives of the performance. Cirque du Soleil’s water show is another attraction that visitors need to see. This dramatic and one-of- a-kind display is not included on road tours so this might be the only chance you get of seeing it.
Outdoors, Rides and Nature Treks
Thrill seekers will delight in the rides atop the Stratosphere Tower. Big Shot flings you more than 150 feet up from the Strat Needle and the Insanity and Scream rides suspend you over the highest peak of the tower. During the cold months you can head on over to Mt. Charleston for skiing or trek to the Red Canyon and Lake Mead for the summer months. You can also visit the Hoover Dam for a look at overwhelmingly large industrial size turbines that power Pasadena.
You can work on your tan or show off that toned body in numerous infinity pools, man-made sand beaches, water lounges and cabana style resorts. Pick up a cocktail and dance the night away with pounding bass beats, neon lights, and great parties. For a laid back approach frequent classic lounges with more contained atmospheres.
