Las Vegas: City Insider


Las Vegas may be known as the "Sin City,” but it has a lot of great attractions. Certainly, the casinos and nightlife are what bring visitors here, but there so much more to do. There are several historic and interesting sites, that are perfect for guided or self-guided tours.

Las Vegas Strip

The Strip is without a doubt Las Vegas' number one attraction. Start with a visit to the exciting Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay with its rare green sea turtles and golden crocodiles. Start wandering down the Strip and check out the iconic casino hotels along the way like the Tropicana and Planet Hollywood. Take a break to step inside the opulent and modern Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on your way to watch the Bellagio Fountain show. Keep going and pop in to the Venetian for an unforgettable meal at Canaletto in St. Mark's Square. When you're done, stroll across the street to the Mirage and check out the spectacular Volcano eruption.

Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam is one of Nevada's proudest possessions. It displaces the Colorado River and creates Lake Mead, a large man-made waterway. You'll find a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants found within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. At night, try the Lake Mead Cruise for dinner and dancing, as well as beautiful scenery. There is even a nearby theater, the Regal Boulder Station, that shows contemporary films.

Fremont Street Experience

In the center of downtown on Fremont Street is the Fremont Street Experience. Along the Fremont Street Experience is part of the Neon Museum, where you can enjoy historic Las Vegas neon signs. Step into Binions and visit their world famous poker room to check out the Wall of Fame. For a taste of some Las Vegas history, check out the Mob Museum, not far from Fremont Street. If you get hungry, then head to Grotto Ristorante in the famous Golden Nugget.

Las Vegas Natural History Museum

The exhibits at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum include many different types of dinosaur fossils and various mounted animals. Nearby, Hennessey's has a classic Irish pub atmosphere with the food and drinks to go along with it. 

Las Vegas was created to provide entertainment, so don't forget to tour local landmarks either on your own or with a guided tour. If you want a guided tour you have plenty of options.
