Top 10 Attractions in Las Vegas

There is more than gambling that draws people into this luxurious desert city, but to be fair gambling is the most common. There are plenty other things to do here, such as hikes, spas, shopping and shows, you don’t really need reasons to come to Las Vegas, but you simply cannot come to Vegas without spending a little cash on a roulette or Black Jack! We’re going to present the top ten Las Vegas attractions and don’t forget that whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so feel free to go wild!

10. The Mob Museum

Former FBI agents and police officers, historians and experts run the Mob Museum, that is located in the heart of Las Vegas. If you want the truth about the Mob, pay them a visit and you will get it. You’ll also find unique artifacts, theater presentations and also interactive exhibits. It’s only $20 for adults and $14 for children under 11 and students.

9. Cirque du Soleil

Attractions in Las VegasIf you haven’t heard of Cirque du Soleil then pause and do a Youtube search and only then come back to us. Go on! Well, wasn’t that amazing? These former Olympic gymnasts will bend over backwards (literally) for the sole purpose of your entertainment. A ticket can cost up to $170, not too cheap and not too pricey. Go see Love at the Mirage if you can, it will blow your mind away – it’s not one of the most popular Las Vegas attractions for nothing.

8. Gourmet Food

Attractions in Las VegasOne wouldn’t think Vegas to be the place one would go to experience gourmet dining, but this is where many are wrong. If you want to fully satisfy your senses, then we recommend you dine at the Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars, because they have the best Parisian meal in the US. The SW Steakhouse at the Wynn is pretty awesome too and you get to take in the water show! If you’re a bit concerned about the money then why not hit the Fiamma Trattoria & Bar at the MGM, the best Italian restaurant in Vegas.

7. Las Vegas Clubs

Whether you like going to clubs or not, a Las Vegas club is a must, just because they’re simply amazing. Some great clubs include Pure at the Caesars and Cathouse at the Luxor (if you’re not so much into dancing and more into people watching.) If you want a complete pin-up girl line-up or a burlesque show, then go to the Crazy Horse and you’re done!

6. Pool Parties

Attractions in Las VegasPool parties are in a league of their own. They’re hot and sexy, just like the men and women who attend. Go to the ones hosted by the Rio Hotel, as the off-duty dancers from the Sapphire Club go there too (the hotel has a deal with the club), or go to more adult pool parties (and when we say adult, we simply mean topless): Bare at the Mirage and Moorea Beach Club at the Mandalay Bay (around 40 dollars to get in for men and 20 for women).

5. Bellagio Fountains

Another thing you must search on Youtube if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Perfectly choreographed water dancing on Broadway tunes or opera – that is a sight to see! Every half hour between 3 and 8 PM and every fifteen minutes from 8 PM till midnight you’ll get to enjoy those 1,214 spritzers shooting water high up in the air (460 feet up) – do not forget your camera!

4. The Spa

Las Vegas for relaxation? Isn’t that like fighting for peace? Not really, the massage you will receive at the Bellagio will be the best massage in your life, we assure you. Some even venture to say that Las Vegas is the best spa destination in the Unites States. The Canyon Ranch at the Venetian is another great place to unwind and feel pampered.

3. Shark Reef Aquarium

Attractions in Las Vegas

The Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay is pretty impressive, it has crocodiles, sting rays, sea turtles, a komodo dragon and of course, sharks. And if you stay at the Mandalay Bay hotel you can turn on the TV on the Shark Reef channel and watch sharks all day long. But I guess you didn’t come to Vegas to watch sharks swim around on TV, although that can prove to be quite fascinating when you return to your room at 3 AM after having a couple of drinks or more.

2. Liberace Museum

Attractions in Las Vegas

The Liberace Museum was opened by Liberace himself in 1979 when he made his brother George director. Unfortunately in 2010 the museum closed due to the poor state of the country’s economy. From 2013 the collection is exhibited at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a luxury resort casino and hotel, located south of the Bellagio – the exhibition is titles “Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful: Liberace and the Art of Costume.”

1. Downtown Las Vegas

Taking a walk through the old part of the city, downtown Las Vegas, will make you feel like you’re in one of those 70’s American movies where the star has just lost all his money gambling and now he’s drowning his sorrows in whiskey. For a complete experience of the downtown area, try the Fremont Street Experience. But stay vigilant, this place can eat you alive, no joke!
