See The World
There is a common joke around Vegas that you can see the world here, and this is something which you should certainly try and do. The reason that you can do this is because the hotels here are so ostentatious, that you can see some of the world’s most iconic landmark replicas here. Visit the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel, witness the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and The Brooklyn Bridge at New York New York, take a gondola onto the canals of the Venetian hotel and witness the Egyptian pyramids at the Luxor hotel, 4 cities in a single day.
Get a Birds-Eye View
One of the best views of Las Vegas is from above and you should definitely make some time to try and get a birds-eye view of the city. The best two ways to do this are to either take a helicopter tour across the bright lights of the city, a tour which is best done at night, or to visit Stratosphere. Stratosphere is the huge tower on the north side of the strip, with a restaurant on its top deck which offers views across the whole city. Even better, every 80 minutes, the restaurant rotates 360 degrees so no matter where you are sitting, you can count on that view.
Be Offended Eating Lunch
For a truly unique experience head to Dick’s Last Resort restaurant, a place that serves wonderful and service with a scowl. That’s right, this is a restaurant where the waiting staff are intentionally rude to you. It may sound wild and wacky, and that is because it definitely is, nonetheless, a visit is an experience which only Vegas can give you.
Photo At The Sign
It is an obligatory requirement for you to stop the cab on your way from the airport to your hotel, and get a photo taken in front of the Las Vegas sign. This is a sign which represents so much about the city, it has been used in movies and TV shows as long as one cares to remember, and a photo is simply a must-do activity.
