Gambling, casinos and Elvis are the first words that spring to mind when “Las Vegas” enters a conversation; at least in the minds of the people who have never before visited this great city. Little do they know that gambling is not all that is on offer!
All bets aside, Vegas offers a whole bunch of exciting and amazing things to do and see, that don’t involve you throwing your hard earned money away on games of chance.
1. The Fountains at Bellagio
The Bellagio Fountains will easily be one of the most beautiful things you see in Vegas and the great news is is that they are FREE! You will spot them out the front of one of the city’s major casinos, with shows going off at least every 15 minutes slotxo true wallet.
2. Pirate Battle at Treasure Island (TI)
Arr me hearties! While the show isn’t your traditional pirate show, it is packed full of entertainment and “bare” comedy. While it used to be more family-oriented, it has now taken more of a mature stance, with scantily clad sirens in various outfits and pirates with very few clothes on, dancing in a well choreographed fashion to loud, pumping music. An added bonus is that it is also free.
Let loose and play a round of golf on one of the 50 courses spread across Las Vegas and its surrounding areas. Hit a hole in one or just play for fun. It’s a great way to spend a day in the sun and work on your tan!
Shopaholics prepare yourself for the shopping experience of a lifetime. Forget New York, Vegas offers everything the Big Apple does, at a much cheaper price. Miracle Mile Shops are located right on The Strip so you can’t miss them; and why would you want to?
5. The Animal Park at the Mirage
Forget your traditional zoo, the Animal Park at the Mirage Hotel will top one any day. Take a stroll through at any time of the day and you will come across some fascinating species of exotic animals, including the albino tiger. Careful not to put your hands in the cages though; they WILL bite!
6. Cirque du Soleil
Dig a little deeper into the pocket (or use the money you have saved from not gambling) and buy a ticket to the Cirque du Soleil. These 5 hours of your life will be filled with exciting stunts and jumps, performed by Olympic gymnasts, who are willing to risk their lives purely for your viewing pleasure. Death defying acts, glittering costumes and attempts at the impossible are sure to keep you coming back for more.
If all else fails, get married!
Las Vegas is the number one place in the world to elope to, so why not help maintain this statistic and tie the knot in a cheesy, but legal wedding chapel?
