What happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay in Vegas. Now, you can take a little piece of Vegas home with you! Whether it’s one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences or getting off the beaten path to visit the great outdoors, Las Vegas has a little bit of something for everyone. The question really is, where to begin?
You won’t believe the shopping options in Vegas. If you’re looking for luxury brands, look no further than the Grand Canal Shoppes at the HxGN LIVE host venue, the Venetian Hotel. Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Guerlain, and Davidoff are just a few of the signature boutiques you’ll find in this 500,000 square-foot high style destination. Looking to branch out from the Venetian? You’re sure to find the perfect gift or fit at hundreds of stores in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, the Wynn Esplanade or the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.
Of course, all of the Vegas resorts offer stellar dining options, glamorous casinos and nightly attractions. Superstars Jennifer Lopez and Rod Stewart will be performing in June at Planet Hollywood and Caesars Palace. There’s magic on tap and burlesque shows, or step into the fantastic Ka by Cirque du Soleil show at the MGM Grand also playing in June.
Step outside the resorts and you’ll have full access to the Vegas Strip experience. Take to the skies on a zip line, see if you can survive the Walking Dead zombies, or enjoy the Viva Vision light show spectacular all 10 minutes away at the Fremont Street Experience.
Want to really step outside? Head to the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. You’ll pass the Hoover Dam whether you drive, fly, or take a bus there. It’s about a 4-hour drive, but a place well worth seeing during your trip. Visitors can hike, bike, or take a mule ride along the various trails for a journey you’ll never forget.
Located even closer to the Vegas strip is the Red Rock Canyon conservation area within the Mojave Desert, where you can experience the American Wild West on horseback tours, or by biking and hiking the incredible trails. Red Rocks is just a 20-minute drive, but it feels like you’re entering a completely different world.
For art lovers, Vegas is home to the Neon Museum where you can travel back in time to see the grand old signs of Vegas restored to their original beauty. The lesser-known Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art features intimate, world-class exhibitions open daily to the public. Or visit the Mob Museum, also known as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, where you can immerse yourself in a modern-day crime lab or trace the origins of gambling and organised crime in Las Vegas.
Dare to ride the High Roller, one of Las Vegas’ newest attractions. At 550 feet tall (167 meters), the High Roller ferris wheel beats out the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer as the tallest observation wheel in the world. You can ride the High Roller day or night, with an open bar option available in the evenings. One “spin” takes approximately 30 minutes in an air-conditioned cabin with incredible views of the Strip.
