Sin City. City of Lights. The Gambling Capital of the World. If you're the kind of person who doesn't need what happened in Las Vegas to stay in Las Vegas then you may want to consider these seven fun activities.
Think beyond the cheesy chapel and Elvis impersonator. The Valley of Fire is just an hour north east outside Las Vegas and there are many wedding packages available to tie the knot in this majestic landscape.
Channel Your Inner Rambo
There are numerous gun ranges in Las Vegas that are only a short taxi ride off the strip. At The Gun Store even beginners can choose automatic or machine guns.
Test Your Skill at the Pinball Hall of Fame
With no admission fee it's worth a stop by this arcade, which is home to over 200 games. You're sure to relive old memories when you find an old childhood favorite and see just how far technology has come in the pinball world.
If you've always wanted to parachute out of a plane but are afraid of heights this is the perfect activity. Indoor sky diving simulates the experience without the fear of plummeting to your death.
Satisfy Your Need for Speed
Feel the thrill of five laps around a race track without all the costly car payments. Exotic cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin and are available to rent with beginners classes included.
Take in a Spectacular Fountain Show
A fountain show doesn't sound appealing but it's more like fireworks with water. In the evening the show runs every 15 minutes and is worth popping by.
Take a Break from the Party
One of the biggest complaints about hotels on the strip is that you need to walk 20 minutes to through the casino to leave the hotel.
The endless excess continues at the pool where many are more like a water-themed dance club. While the strip attracts wild parties you can choose a hotel not attached to a casino like the Hilton Elara and you'll find a much more laid back atmosphere and a pool that is relaxing.
Shop 'Til You Drop
The pricey designer clothing stores on the strip may leave your credit card with a questionable balance. Instead check out the premium outlet stores for a better deal. With one located in the north and one in the south you can find many brands at a discount price.
Visit the Neon Boneyard
Where neon signs retire with dignity, take a tour of vintage neon signs in the two-acre campus of restored electrified history.
Take Mini-Golf to the Next Level
The KISS-themed Monster Mini Golf is a sensory overload with a glow in the dark indoor experience. If you're a KISS fan, or just want a good laugh, you're sure to find it here.
Master the Art of All-You-Can-Eat
