With so many choices of where to stay, eat, and what to see and do in Las Vegas, we have narrowed down the search for you in this guide to your summer destination this year. Located in the beautiful Mojave Desert in Nevada, Las Vegas is a resort city that is well-known around the world for its nightlife, casinos and entertainment shows. The “strip,” which is a 4-mile long boulevard of hotels, is the main attraction to this city, though there are other parts to Nevada that are great as well.
Tour the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon
An iconic tourism destination and architectural natural treasure, the Hoover Dam is right outside of Las Vegas in the desert and provides guided excursions and picturesque views. Alternatively, you can also visit the Grand Canyon and take a guided tour of the South Rim for beautiful views of the Native American heritage sites. Book a private helicopter ride for you and your loved one and you could be taking everything in with a birds-eye view of the desert.
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas
Whether you are in Las Vegas alone, or with your family, you can always visit the iconic Madame Tussauds Las Vegas museum for an adventurous afternoon experience filled with informative exhibits and replicas of famous celebrities and individuals made of wax. Located inside the Venetian, this exhibit is one of the most frequently visited attractions in Las Vegas.
Ride the LINQ
The world’s tallest observation wheel, the LINQ can be a great date night experience for couples with a private bartender to serve drinks as you enjoy the views during the ride. The wheel itself stands at 550 feet in the air (the highest point with a view) and has perfect views of the Las Vegas strip and the entire city for that matter.
Watch the Bellagio Fountains
With fountains shooting water nearly 500 feet into the air, the Bellagio hotel’s fountains are a remarkable display that is accompanied by the music of Frank Sinatra for a perfect night of class and romance. Inside the hotel, you can also view the seasonal displays of beautiful flowers at the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, but the main attraction remains the thousands of fountains shooting in the sky.
