The Best Things to Do on the Vegas Strip

The Las Vegas Strip is a world-renowned destination synonymous with high-stakes gambling, neon signs, shotgun weddings, glitz and glamour, and 100 years of Wild West shenanigans. Sin City is single-handedly responsible for hosting and entertaining millions of guests from around the world. The heart of this desert metropolis? The Las Vegas Strip. Here are some of our favorite experiences you can find on Las Vegas Boulevard:

  • Check out happy hour on the High Roller - a 550 ft Ferris wheel at the LINQ Hotel + Experience. It’s the tallest Ferris wheel in the world and is equipped with a fully stocked bar. 
  • Catch a Cirque du Soleil show. These dazzling productions are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
  • Catch a Las Vegas Raiders Football game at Allegiant Stadium or a Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey game at T-Mobile Arena.
  • Go shopping at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Also known as “The Shopping Wonder of the World,” The Forum Shops are Las Vegas’ definitive luxury shopping destination.
  • Las Vegas North Premium Outlets, the ultimate Las Vegas luxury outlets with over 180 luxury and top designer brands including Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, and Armani.

Other Things To Do in Las Vegas That Aren't on the Strip

Want to explore further? Las Vegas has many other activities and things to do. Downtown Las Vegas is less than 15 minutes from the Strip and where it all began, long before the Strip this was Las Vegas! The new Circa Resort and Casino is the latest development here, but also do not miss the Neon Museum, home to retired iconic Las Vegas neon signs, the Mob Museum, featuring the history of the Mob and home to a speakeasy. Fremont Street Experience with its covered video screen canopy and Slotzilla zipline are not to be missed, and don’t forget the Container Park and its many dining options.

Las Vegas is also a gateway to many beautiful National Parks. Take a short airplane journey or helicopter flight to Grand Canyon National Park, choose from a Las Vegas sightseeing flight to Grand Canyon West Rim and land at the bottom of the Canyon next to the Colorado River, or take a sightseeing flight to Grand Canyon South Rim and explore Grand Canyon National Park by Hummer Tour. Spectacular Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend, located in Page, Arizona, are also a short sightseeing flight away.
