Travelling certainly is one of the greatest joys life could bring you. It is all about experiencing a whole new world, witnessing diverse cultures, tantalizing your tastebuds with traditional new cuisines, and, best of all, adding another place to your list of explorations. And if you are someone who is not only fond of traveling but is easily fascinated by downtown, urban nightlife, then we are positive, you either already have checked Las Vegas off your bucket list or are about to, soon.
In case you are not aware, Vegas labels itself as ‘The entertainment capital of the world’, internationally renowned for its nightlife, mega casino-hotels, shopping, fine dining, and other associated activities as such. However, if you already live in Las Vegas and you have family or friends visiting over, or you are new to Vegas and are looking forward to exploring as much as you possibly can, it might be quite challenging for the host or yourself to figure what all places you could visit.
There is no dearth of attractive destinations and amazing eateries in the entertainment capital of the world. Vegas has tons of attractions. After all, it is a tourist city, and the activities are almost endless. You might need to be very specific about where all you want to go. We suggest you properly plan your trip so that you can take advantage of exploring the city to the fullest, every day. To help you with just that, we have listed down a few activities to do and places to visit while you are in Vegas. If you don’t have a to-do list for the entertainment capital of the world, don’t worry about it! We have got you covered.
1. Relaxing Resorts
Las Vegas hotels and resorts are one of the finest in the world. Picking the absolute best would leave you in a huge dilemma, and the result would be unjust. We suggest you do some quick search on the internet first, and then choose a resort or hotel. Go for a place where you could not only stay peacefully but can enjoy it as well.
There are multiple resorts located on The Strip, that provide a relaxing environment and also have several tourist attractions on the inside. Some resorts also feature rides, shopping arcades with blue skies, gondoliers, and canals.
2. Break Everything But A Leg
A lot of people want to hop off the airplane when they reach Vegas and wander around exploring the exotic city. While we do encourage you to try out as many new things as you can, but it is also important to take a break on your exhausting travel-day.
We recommend that you release all the jet-lag and pressure in a ‘rage room.’ Take your friends and family along to Sin City Smash, Wreck Room, or Axe Monkey and exert out all the aggression by wearing protective gear and using a sledgehammer to destroy computers, dishes, and anything that is, well… breakable. It is quite relaxing and even therapeutic, as some may say.
3. Las Vegas Murals
Las Vegas has an annual three-day event called the Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival. It is a culinary art, music, and learning festival that originated back in 2013, held in downtown Las Vegas.
The festival brought in a ton of muralists and international street artists who covered the city’s walls with colorful and jaw-dropping programs. Since the festival had its debut, it continues to take place each year. The new display of artworks is added every year, while the older ones are refreshed or replaced. This event leaves explorers truly fascinated as they wander down the epic, massive scaled art gallery and through the streets of Vegas.
4. Welcome To Las Vegas
One of the most iconic landmarks of Vegas is the retro Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Designed by Betty Willis and funded in 1959, the sign remains to be a top attraction for tourists even today. It lies within the township of Nevada Paradise. The bright-yellow neon outlined world-famous signboard crowned with an eight-pointed star is actually 6.4 kilometers south of Las Vegas city limits. Did you even visit Vegas if you don’t take a picture of or in front of this evocative landmark? Here is your chance to an Instagram worthy photo for everyone to see and be awestruck.
5. The Artifact Exhibition: The Titanic
Don’t let go off your chances of visiting the legendary recreations of the Titanic ship and witnessing its authentic remains. Here, visitors get a chance to see around 250 genuine objects from the actual Titanic, including the largest recovered ship section ‘The Big Piece’ and some of the passenger’s different and unique personal belongings. Not only that, but you also get to experience a couple of the scenes from the Titanic by going around breathtaking replicas of the ship.
Go ahead and witness never-before-seen exhibits that will reconnect you with history in the most beautiful yet haunting way.
6. The Neon Museum
If you are a history geek or are quite fascinated by the ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign, then you might be interested in this tourist attraction too. While Vegas tends to get rid of musty and obsolete things and often reduces it to plain rubble, some of the finest and iconic neon vintage signs have been preserved at the Neon Museum. They are displayed for locals and tourists.
You can book yourself a tour where you can wander around some of these vintage, antique signboards while hearing tales of extraordinary billionaires, legendary haunts, and of the people who made Vegas. A pro tip would be to visit the museum in the evening when you can see the neon and refurbished signs illuminated back to their nostalgic glory.
7. The ‘Heroic’ Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N
Calling out all the superhero Marvel fans, we have just found your dream station. Indulge yourself at Vegas’s Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) and come across some of your favorite superheroes. Here, train yourself to become an official agent, then study classified experiments and files, and uncover some of the epic Avenger’s origins. Here, you would be able to experience some of the recreated Avengers movie sets along with sights of operational equipment such as Black Widow and Hawkeye’s uniform and weapons, Ant-Man’s shield, Captain America’s shield. Wander around Bruce Banner’s laboratory and then battle Ultron as you map the stars to find Asgard. Sounds just about fun now, doesn’t it? Don’t forget to add this to your bucket list, so you won’t have any chances of regretting later on.
