In Vegas, anything goes, but despite a tendency for being over the top there are still a few things to do in Las Vegas that will take your breath away every time. These are a few iconic Vegas experiences that you just have to see.
You’ve seen it in movies like “Ocean’s Eleven” and “The Hangover”, during legendary musical performances by Britney Spears and Drake and in music videos like Pitbull’s “Bad Man” and Bruno Mars’s “24k Magic” but there’s nothing quite like experiencing the magic of the Bellagio fountains in person.
Whether you’re ending a romantic date night with your partner, taking the kids home after a fun-filled day or gearing up for an epic night out with your friends, the choreographed water show will enchant your senses. This is one thing you absolutely must do when you’re in Vegas.
Enigma at the Park Theater
One of the hottest tickets of the 2020 Vegas show season will be Lady Gaga’s residency at the Park Theater at MGM. Through May, you can witness the legendary show that’s packed with hits from “Just Dance” to “Shallow” and everything in between.
From the moment she descends from the ceiling in a mirrored silver jumpsuit you know you’re in for a visual feast. Lady Gaga delivers on vocals, performance and outfit changes that can only be described as artwork and no one puts on a show quite like her. We can’t think of a better way to start your night in Vegas!
High Roller Observation Wheel
The last thing on our list is one of the best ways to sightsee on the Las Vegas Strip. Since you’ve mastered the streetview as you cruise down Las Vegas Boulevard in your Moke, it’s time for a new perspective- how about 550 feet in the air?
The High Roller Observation Wheel at LINQ is like the ultimate Ferris Wheel. You’ll get an uninterrupted 360 degree view from inside your own glass pod during the 30 minute ride. While this is a great thing to do in Las Vegas with kids, couples and groups will also enjoy the ride in an open bar cabin.
Ride during the daytime to take in the sprawling view of the city, hop on at dusk for an unforgettable sunset or wait until dark to see the Vegas lights in a totally new way.
If you’re not treating yourself to decadent meals while you’re in Vegas, you’re doing it wrong! There are countless restaurants located on the Strip alone and with new ones opening every season, it can be overwhelming to try and choose. Here are just a few of our tried and true options that are sure to please everyone in your group.
Top of the World in the Strat Hotel
A room with a view is one way of putting it: at over 800 feet high, Top of the World restaurant is located in the SkyPod at the Stratosphere Hotel offers a stunning panoramic view of Las Vegas. The SkyPod slowly rotates so you can see the city from a new perspective while enjoying a gourmet lunch or dinner.
Whether you book your table during sunset or after dark, this is one of the best things to do in Las Vegas for couples looking for a romantic dinner spot.
Gordon Ramsay Burger at Planet Hollywood
It’s hard to beat a traditional burger and fries combo but Gordon Ramsay takes it to the next level at his Burger restaurant in Planet Hollywood. This restaurant tops our list for the best place to eat in Vegas with kids but with prime cuts of beef grilled over an open flame the adults in your party won’t mind grabbing one of these mouth-watering burgers either.
Don’t forget to wash it down with one of Ramsay’s signature shakes. The addition of pudding to the traditional milkshake turns an already tasty treat into something truly delightful.
É by José Andrés
Sometimes exclusivity can really add to the appeal of an experience. That’s definitely the case with José Andrés’s restaurant at the Cosmopolitan. At é, you’ll be served an avant-garde tasting menu inspired by Spanish cuisine.
The creation of your meal is part of the experience as you sit at a vast, sleek, steel topped bar opposite your chefs. The intimate setting makes it the ultimate Vegas date night and a reservation is sure to impress your partner as é only accepts two seatings each night.
With all the exciting things to do in Las Vegas, it’s easy to forget to slow down and have a chill afternoon. You can still enjoy the full Vegas experience while taking it easy and getting pampered. Here are just a few of our favorite places to relax on the Strip, whether you need a few low key hours to perk back up for a full evening of activities or you just want to enjoy a quiet afternoon.
Gondola Rides at the Venetian
After a long day of sightseeing on the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll embrace the opportunity to get off your feet for a while. Why not hire a gondolier to serene you while you meander through the canals? You’ll feel like you’ve been carried through time and space to the Venice canals in Italy as you float beneath the bridges and past the quaint café fronts and balconies.
You can choose a Gondola ride inside or outside and either option offers a romantic tour with plenty of Instagrammable moments.
Cypress Pool at the Bellagio
Vegas pool parties are practically an unwritten rule, but sometimes we just need to be pampered so we can keep the party going later. There’s no better place to luxuriate than at the Mediterranean style pools at the Bellagio. Lush green topiaries surround the crystal clear blue waters so you feel like you have a bit more privacy as you lounge poolside, enjoying the cool mist from an opulent fountain.
For a truly luxurious afternoon grab a private cabana at Cypress where you’ll enjoy the service from a personal host or book a poolside massage. You’ll be ready to hit the Strip again feeling more refreshed than ever.
Waldorf Astoria Tea Lounge
If you’re really feeling fancy and looking for an alternative way to pamper yourself, the tea lounge at the Waldorf Astoria is the perfect thing to do in Las Vegas during the day. Take a date, treat your kids or grab some friends for an English style tea.
There’s a wide variety of distinctive teas to select, from the traditional English breakfast to a more exotic infusion. And yes, it’s still considered tea time if you skip the tea and order a Champagne. Just be sure to pair your beverage with one of their scrumptious tea sandwiches or pastries.
One of the best parts of sightseeing in Las Vegas on a Moke is that you have the opportunity and the flexibility to hop from one place to the next quickly, easily and in style. You’ll be amazed how much more there is to experience on the Strip. Here are just a few of our favorite things to see on the Vegas Strip.
Public Art at CityCenter
Art and Vegas collide in the exhibits on display around CityCenter. In true Vegas style, modern art pieces aren’t enclosed inside pristine museums, instead, you can enjoy these pieces as you stroll through Aria, Vdara, the shops at Crystals and all the walkways in between.
This unique collection of fine arts features artists in different mediums like sculptors, painters, and installation artists.
Wildlife Habitat at Flamingo
Hidden within the 15-acre grounds at Flamingo’s Las Vegas resort is a family-friendly sanctuary where you and your family can peek through the mist and greenery at another family- the pink of the Chilean flamingo flock is such an amazing contrast to the rich green of the forest.
Taking a photo with a flamingo is one of our top things to do with kids in Las Vegas and the best part? It’s free.
We’re going to go on record as saying this is not your average museum. Part Vegas history lesson and part neon graveyard, the Neon Museum is a massive collection of iconic Las Vegas signs from as early as the 1930s.
Take a guided tour through the Neon Boneyard, see one of the special exhibits or download a tour map, hop in a Moke and enjoy the historic pieces that sit around the Vegas strip.
