13 Things To Do In Las Vegas On & Off The Strip

Posted by admin | 0 Comments

We have a few things on our DO NOT MISS list …

1. The rollercoaster at the NY NY hotel.

Drive over to Mandalay Bay (preferably in the early evening) – hop on the tram to Excalibur and walk across the path to the NY NY.

Spend a little cash and get a great ride with a great view (yes, sometimes upside down) and scream a lot!

It is a blast.

Head on down to the Irish pub or sport bar after for a cold one and some snacks. This is a great way to introduce yourself to Vegas.


If the NY NY sounds like fun – take this idea over the top with a trip to the Stratosphere and ride the BIG SHOT.

3. See old Vegas – via the zip line!

Head over to the Fremont Experience and get to know old Vegas. Take a moment and hook onto the zip line and see it from above. This will leave you smiling.

4. Head on over to the Golden Nugget.

Check out the pool with a water slide through the shark tank (yes, I said SHARK). You will want to ride it!

5. Walk into the Bellagio.

See the garden, have breakfast for dinner at the café (ask for a table that overlooks the flowers) and then walk outside and watch the fountains dance to the music. It is completely over the top and wonderful!

6. Head to Paris!

You should always walk across the street and head up the Eiffel Tower for a glass of wine and watch the dancing fountains again and again (they go off every 20 minutes or so).
7. Leave VegasYes Really!

Head out off the Strip area. Pick a place … Red Rock is close and so unique (picnic and hiking anyone?). Rent a boat on Lake Mead for a few  hours.

8. See the Valley of Fire.

The Valley of Fire is a bit further by car, but quite lovely to walk around and see the old markings and beautiful scenery.

9. Escape to Lake Mead.

The lake has so much to see and so much history. Experience the tour at Hoover Dam, it’s so interesting – something you will not forget (stop by the Dairy Queen on your way home in Boulder City and grab an ice cream).

10. Death Valley … it is not that far away!

You could head to Death Valley (especially in the spring when the desert flowers start to bloom).  It is also a great place to experience intense heat – we have found this is interesting to some!

11. The view from afar.

There are a few places with great views back at the Strip – such as the M Hotel and Casino (they also have a great pool and tons of fun events outside– check their calendar).

12. We also suggest dining at Lindo Michoacan in Henderson.

They have great Mexican food and one amazing view! It is located at 645 Carnegie Street, Henderson, NV. Call them at 702 837 6828.

13. When all else fails – ZIP somewhere!

If you are up for an adventure – please head out to zip line or kayak at the river. Our insider’s guide will give you all the details. Make this an entire day away and become one with nature in a very special way!
