 Hoover Dam

 

You cannot come to Las Vegas and not visit the Hoover Dam. This dam is a historic legacy and carries with it a lot of national pride and history. This one single dam is the source of power for three states – Arizona, California, and Nevada. You can check out the various exhibits, models, and audiovisual items in place for tourists. If you are alright with splurging some more, you can hop on to a helicopter and enjoy the aerial views of the dam. Another great thing is that you can go visit the Grand Canyon in all its glory on the same day as well.

 The Mob Museum

 

The Mob Museum promises to be as interesting as its name, and it actually lives up to it as well. It is officially named the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. This is an iconic setting, as many major movies and TV shows have been filmed time and again around here. You can see their exhibits on the kind of cultural trends, individuals, and many events that were part of the 20th century’s mob era in the entire country. The exhibits and displays here are very detailed and you will come back with a renewed knowledge and understanding of what went down during those years.

 The Neon Museum

Las Vegas is known for the coolest neon signs on its streets. And so this museum keeps and showcases these signs, and even refurbishes them. You will be able to ask your guide questions about the history and meaning behind the signs. This museum is a great way to learn more about Las Vegas’s history.

 Big Apple Rollercoaster

Located on the Strip, the Big Apple Rollercoaster is part of the many attractions here. This place has been here for a while  – it has a New York-style pizza that is so delicious, many great bars, and shops with the best gifts. If you go to the casino, you can have a great time with the table games and slot machines.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

You can hike up here or if you love to bike, you can bring your bike to the trails as well. The Mojave desert is beautiful, as the dunes and the edges are accentuated by the red hills rising up gently in the distance. Make sure you plan ahead and bring maps, sunscreen, enough water, etc. before starting your hike.

 Fremont Street

This site is lined with various stalls and has a very CP-ish story. Being in downtown Las Vegas, this is a place you must go to. The lights and the hustle and bustle of this place are said to easily contrast the Strip, as more and more people are coming here. The streets have many food stalls, stalls for souvenirs and gifts, etc. You can also go to the Viva Vision Light Show – it consists of over twelve million LED lamps. This place is regaining its charm again and the casinos are also springing back up.

 

 Planning out your itinerary before starting your vacation is very important. But of course, you should also leave out some loose slots so that you can be flexible.
