The Key to a Memorable Vegas Weekend
- Take a photo in front of the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign – An iconic fixture amidst Las Vegas’ modern, ever evolving atmosphere, the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign at the south end of the strip is one of America’s iconic cultural markers. If it’s your first trip to Vegas you’re obligated to have your picture taken in front of it with the opulent strip looming in the background.
- Experience all the free things Vegas offers – It’s no secret Vegas is a money trap, and can empty your wallet in a single day with gambling, shows, activities and drinks. However, Vegas has a dirty little secret – there’s plenty of free things to do! Many of them are quaint, but memorable experiences, such as watching the Bellagio’s synchronized fountain show, Treasure Island’s pirate show featuring actual moving set pieces or the Mirage’s signature volcano explode. All of these can be experienced by walking down the strip. Even walking through the hotels is a free sight to behold! Check out Luxor’s massive vaulted pyramid with Egyptian architecture, take a walk-through New York streets at New York, New York or climb the steps of Paris’ replica Eiffel Tower to get a great view of the strip.
- Take it to the limit and bungee jump off the Stratosphere – Vegas is perfect for dare devils, and the Stratosphere is no exception. The 108-story tower features a death defying roller coaster and freefall ride, yet its most intimidating activity is the opportunity to bungee jump off the edge of the 108th
- Brave the risqué with Vegas night shows – If there’s anything Vegas is known for its pushing boundaries. Entertain the risqué by checking out Zombie Burlesque at Planet Hollywood for a cheeky undead take on the art of burlesque or experience the essence of human nature with Cirque du Soleil’s sensual Zumanity show at New York, New York.
- Rage all night at EDC – The Electric Daisy Carnival Festival is Vegas’ Coachella, featuring the best in EDM music and awe-inspiring stages. The huge event is hosted at the Speedway and features tons of neon lights, art installations and intense stages with giant animatronics, pyrotechnics and laser lights. Dress up in your favorite rave gear and celebrate a non-stop lineup of DJs until the break of dawn!
