When people head to Las Vegas, in the main, they’re doing so to visit the iconic Strip and to visit the wealth of casinos in the area.
However, Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is about more than casinos and gambling, with so many other great things to see and do when visiting.
Watch A Soccer Game
If you’re from the UK or most other places, you will understand that if you’re in Vegas, when talking about football, you must refer to it as soccer. And believe it or not, Las Vegas has its own soccer team called the Las Vegas Lights. The team plays at Cashman Field in Downtown Las Vegas and competes in the USL Championship. As with all sporting occasions in the US, heading to the soccer makes for a great day or night out, as the experience can involve drinks, socialising, eating good food, and even the opportunity to review any number of football betting markets on the game and perhaps place a bet or two!
Do Some Digging
Yes, you read that correctly; we’re telling you that if you’re in Las Vegas, you should do some digging. And, when we say digging, we mean digging by taking the controls of real-life diggers, bulldozers and other machinery that you wouldn’t usually get the chance to operate. As you will gather from the mention of bulldozers, it’s not just a digging experience, as visitors can also get stuck into some tires and push them around as if they’re nothing. It’s an experience where those taking part can do what they fancy in vehicles they probably won’t have access to again in their everyday lives.
Enjoy The Omnia Experience
Caesars Palace is very much the place to be when you’re in Las Vegas for a whole host of reasons. But, one reason many may not quickly relate to Caesars is a nightclubbing experience that is out of this world. We’re here to tell you that if you’re in Sin City, head to Caesars and check out Omnia and everything it has to offer. The venue registers at 75,000 square feet, and world-famous DJs are always on the decks pumping out the best tracks. It’s a bottle-popping experience like no other and one that is great to share with friends and even total strangers.
Take In Some Ice Hockey
For a long time, there was a desire in Vegas to see a professional sports team come to the fore. And when the Las Vegas Golden Knights did exactly that in 2017, people couldn’t have been happier. Competing in the NHL with ice hockey, one of the US’ leading sports, the Knights made it to the Stanely Cup final in their debut campaign, and they’re now a great team to go and watch at the T-Mobile Arena, which is on the Strip in Sin City. Again, America does sporting occasions like no other, so getting tickets is more than worth it. The halftime shows are great entertainment, too, as you’d expect.
Get The Best View
When you’re in Vegas, for the most part, you’re going to be at ground level, looking around and up. But wouldn’t it be great if you could get high up and look down at what is one of the greatest cities on earth?
Well, you can, and all you must do is head to the High Roller Observation Wheel, which also happens to be the largest observation wheel on the planet. The wheel offers incredible views of everything Vegas has to offer, from the Strip to the desert and beyond. It’s even possible to book and enjoy a drink while you’re there, enhancing the experience further.
Watch The Fountains Dance
There are a number of iconic things you can see and do in Vegas, and many of them will ultimately cost you a bit of money, which is part of the course. But, heading to The Bellagio to see the fountains dance is free, and it’s probably the most popular attraction the Strip has to offer. Each night there are a huge number of people who gather to see the 1,200+ geysers dance to the music. And, if that wasn’t enough, the fountains have been made even more famous thanks to the hit movie Oceans Eleven. If you’re in Vegas, this is something you can’t miss out on.
As you can see, Las Vegas is a truly magical place, and there is so much to see and do; you can’t just go for the weekend and expect to get everything packed into a couple of days. And what is also great about Vegas is that there really is something for everyone.
It’s not just the gambling mecca; there are some unreal attractions and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to explore. You’ll struggle to find anywhere better to visit right now.
