Las Vegas may be the “City of Sin” because of the alcohol flowing 24/7 and parties that never end, but it’s actually a great city to visit because of the attractions! There are actually a lot of things you can see all throughout the year in Vegas, and they are worth looking at in person. Even if you’ve already been to Vegas you might find there are a lot of things you still need to go see and experience. Take these for example…
1. Bellagio Fountains
Even if you’ve never been to Las Vegas you have probably heard of or seen the Bellagio Fountains. They have been featured on countless movies (most recently the Hangover pt.2), but they are also one of the most photographed attractions in all of Vegas! The fountains are located right in front of the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, which is located on the main strip. They go off every half an hour (or sometimes hourly), and they move to the beat of the music. If you are lucky enough to stay in a hotel surrounding these, then you can enjoy some amazing views of the water moving while you go about your no doubt debauched business.
2. Chandelier Bar at Cosmopolitan
When you walk into the Chandelier Bar inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, you can’t be anything else other than amazed. This multi-story bar is surrounded with crystals from every angle, shining and sparkling to give the illusion that you’re enjoying a drink while frolicking in a mountain of diamonds. There are also hand-crafted cocktails at the bar, so you can easily enjoy something tasty to drink while you marvel at the crystal curtains all around you.
3. Bellagio Conservatory
Into flowers and botanical gardens? Probably not the reason you came to Vegas. Still, if so, you will love the conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. The displays in these gardens are always changing, and are sculpted from a diverse spectrum of flowers and plants. It’s a great place for adults as well as kids and is especially beautiful during the holiday season, as it hosts a large tree, a gingerbread house, a polar bear and even reindeer – all made up from the topiary and fauna.
4. Fremont Experience Downtown
Here you can see a $70 million canopy of lights that covers a huge length of space between different casinos. This television has shows as well as interactive games that play all throughout the day. In addition to this, you can enjoy some great food and find good deals on activities like zip lining.
5. Hard Rock Casino
Are you in the mood for gambling? While Vegas has legalized online casino games, that shouldn’t stop you from experiencing the action in person. One of the most fun casinos to go to is the one at the Hard Rock Hotel. Here you can play a number of different games, but you can also enjoy the furnishings that they have too. These are generally memorabilia from celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Tupac, The Beatles and many other iconic legends! Every piece of memorabilia has a description with it, so you can learn delve into learning should you need a distraction from what’s happening at the tables.
