The best things to do in Las Vegas

April 2, 2017

Step onto the Strip and take a walk in any direction. On the one side you could have an erupting volcano and Venetian gondolas, or you could find a big, colourful M&M store in the opposite direction. Perhaps you prefer to splurge at the Forum Shops, either way; the Strip is not only for gamblers.

It doesn’t matter whether you know where anything is, just as long as you know what you are looking for. You could have dinner in the Eiffel Tower in front of the Paris Hotel or enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Strip from the top. Across the road from the Eiffel is Bellagio’s dancing fountains – a short but beautiful feature. Thereafter, make your way down to The Mirage where a crowd will be waiting in anticipation for an erupting volcano. This night time attraction is an amazing audio and visual display of deep sounds, bursting fire and water.

If you’re feeling romantic or looking for something more to do, take a gondola ride down the canal of The Venetian or admire the singing gondolier from the walkway.

The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is a shopping mall you should see for the architecture itself. The entrance hall has spiral escalators, statues and an incredible ceiling. As you walk through the mall you’ll notice the cobble stone streets and the beautifully painted sky as the ceiling which leads you to an aquarium.

If you’re interested in shopping a little less luxuriously, visit the Miracle Mile shopping mall next to the Paris Hotel.

The New York-New York hotel’s architecture includes various New York City towers, the Statue of Liberty and so much more, for this reason it makes a great attraction to go take a look at.  The hotel also has a Hershey’s Chocolate World filled with delicious slabs, accessories and a bakery. Across the road from Hershey’s is a multi-story M&M World selling plenty of sweets, homeware and accessories. The Coca-Cola store is next to M&M World and is rather amazing as you are bound to find a gift for any person here. The products range from cute socks, massive Coke bottle coin banks, scented t-shirts, many stationary items and more.

If you have more time and want to move away from the Strip, take a drive to Hoover Dam and enjoy a walk on the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.
