There are so many things to do in Las Vegas. Drinking, gambling, and hitting the nightlife are what most know of, but there is so much more. Last year I let you in on some Fun and Different Things to do in Las Vegas. I promised I would come back with another round and I am here to deliver. I can pretty much guantee there will be another follow up to this. So if you are wondering what else there is to do in Sin City, keep reading.
1. High Roller – The High Roller opened in 2014 on the Las Vegas Strip. It is currently the tallest ferris wheel in the world standing at 550 feet. Rides can be taken day or night. I went at night and enjoyed the view of Vegas lit up. I would suggest trying sunset, so you get the best of both worlds! The High Roller is a 30 minute ride roundtrip and you can bring a drink on if you’d like.
2. Neon Boneyard – The Neon Museum is home to the Neon Boneyard. Old signage from Las Vegas’ yesteryears are housed here. All the hotels and businesses that are gone and have been demolished have signs in the Boneyard. It is very cool to see and learn more about the signs and the history of Las Vegas. Luckily the Neon Museum has maintained them very well and you can take a tour. I recommend going during cooler months or as the sun goes down to avoid the intense Vegas heat!
3. A Helicopter Ride – What better way to see the Las Vegas strip then with a helicopter ride. Although it went pretty quickly it was an amazing experience I won’t soon forget. I went at night, once again to see Las Vegas all lit up. I had a great view of everything. There are also helicopter rides to the Grand Canyon and other places as well.
4. Paddle Boarding – As I said in a previous post there are a couple of lakes in Las Vegas. I headed over to my favorite place, Lake Las Vegas and discovered paddle boarding there. Perfect place to go and it was my first time paddle boarding! With the beautiful views and great company, I had so much fun. It was also a great work out. At the end I jumped in the water to cool off from the August heat.
5. Zip Lining – There are a few places to zip line in Las Vegas. After watching friends do it in the past, I finally got it together and tried it out for myself. Freemont Street is home to SlotZilla. The zip line sends you across the Freemont Experience. They have also added an addition recently that will have you zipping by like Superman. I have yet to try that one, but I had a great time flying across from one end to the other.
Have you ever done any of these things in Las Vegas?
