Nevada has more casinos than any other state in the US. And, of course, Las Vegas, otherwise known as Sin City, as many of those casinos. But there’s so much more to do in Vegas than just gambling.
People from around the world come to Las Vegas to enjoy so much more than sitting in air-conditioned gambling rooms with no clocks on the walls! In fact, there are many things to do in Las Vegas that will make a trip memorable, for adults and kids alike.
Let’s no take a look at ten fun things to do in Las Vegas that don’t involve gambling.
Day Clubs and Pool Parties
As we move past the pandemic, pool parties and day clubs are springing up in Las Vegas once more. The typical pool party season begins in late March but may start to pick up well towards the end of April.
Pool parties often occur between Thursday and Sunday. If you don’t reserve your place at these parties, it’s best to turn up around 10 pm onwards in the morning to guarantee your entry. Places like Wet Republic, Encore Beach Club, and Drai’s Beach Club are popular spots.
Go Boating On Lake Mead
If pool parties aren’t your thing, why not head out to Lake Mead and go boating for the day? Lake Mead is around a 40-minute ride away from the Las Vegas Strip, and you’ll be glad you made the trip!
The lake is stunning and you can rent your own pontoon boat to cruise around the lake all day long. However, you might prefer renting some kayaks or even jet skis instead.
Have a Day of Thrill Rides
If you’re going to fly to Vegas, you have to check out the thrill rides at some point. No trip to Las Vegas is complete without at least trying the New New York rollercoaster.
Other rides include the X-Scream and Slingshot. Also, the Insanity should give anyone a thrill as it hurtles you 800 feet into the sky while spinning!
If you’re planning to visit Las Vegas, make sure to check out the best events on offer for the dates you intend to go. For instance, there’s the world-renowned Cirque Du Soleil to watch, which will no doubt be unforgettable.
International pop superstars often play to Vegas Crowds. We’re talking about singers like Adele and Bruno Mars. Plus, they’ll also be some excellent magic shows to check out.
Take a Tour of the Strip
There are plenty of Las Vegas Strip tours to go on where you can gain a good all-round knowledge of what the area is about. Local guides can take you around all the hotspots.
Plus, some tours may even provide you with a personal photographer. This way, you can capture quality imagery of your memories in Vegas.
Check Out the Hot Springs and Sauna Caves
One way of getting to the hot springs and sauna caves is by kayak. You begin your kayaking journey at the bottom of the Hoover Dam and then make your way down the Colorado River.
At some point, you’ll enter the sauna caves. And, you’ll come across hot springs concealed from the outside world.
Gondola Ride at the Venetian Hotel
If you want a taste of Italy on your Vegas vacation, why not head down to the Venetian Hotel for a gondola ride. The hotel has built its very own network of canals to give the feel of Venice.
We recommend this activity for anyone wanting a romantic time while in Vegas. And for good luck, you should carry out the tradition of kissing under the bridge!
Wine and Beer Tasting
If you’re a wine drinker, or just fancy something different, wine tasting is one of the many activities you can do in Sin City. After a quick search on Google, you’ll find plenty of wine tasting events to check out.
Or if beer is more your thing, why not take a look at the various craft breweries scattered around the city? Banger Brewing and CraftHaus Brewery are two great spots. We also recommend Hop Nuts Brewing is a fantastic place to try a variety of craft beers to taste the night away with.
Go on the High Roller
If you want an aerial view of the city, the High Roller observation wheel is one way to do it. We recommend you do it at night to see all of the amazing lights that illuminate the city.
This activity is one you could fit in on any evening during your time in Vagas. The reason is that it will only take up 30 minutes of your time, but will be well worth the effort.
Head to the Sky Bars
If you fancy an aerial view with a nightcap at your side, then you might want to head over to one of the many sky bars that Vegas has to offer. The Skyfall Lounge Delano is a great spot for this.
You also might be interested in the 107 SkyLounge. The Commonwealth has an “old worldly” feel to it with a beautiful rooftop patio to sit out on. The Legacy Club, on the other hand, has much more of a modern and lit-up feel to it.
