Things to do in Las Vegas, America

Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world, known for its casinos and Elvis weddings, tourist attractions, spectacular live shows (I’ve picked 24 of my favorite shows in Las Vegas covering acrobatics to concerts to magic and everything in between) and the food scene, but there’s so much more to Sin City than that.

Actually, you’ll find incredible Michelin-star restaurants, there’s a fabulous shopping scene with malls and even outlet shopping, so many live shows like several resident Cirque du Soleil shows, concerts with megastars and sport, plus loads of crazy fun activities for the whole family.

Take a walk around this wonderful city with our travel insurance team’s top things to do whilst visiting the American city.

Glaze at the Bellagio Fountains

The Bellagio fountain show is one of the city’s most iconic spectacles. There is nothing like seeing them live. If you are staying in the city for a few days, this is definitely something you shouldn’t miss!

Check out the Red Rock Grand Canyon

Vast, magnificent, and inarguably beautiful, the Grand Canyon is easily Arizona’s most distinguishable landmark — a natural wonder you must see to believe.

Stretching 277 miles from end to end, the Grand Canyon’s rocky walls descend more than a mile to the canyon’s floor, where the wild Colorado River continues to carve away at the rugged landscape. Everyone should see the Grand Canyon at least once in their lifetime, and area businesses and outfitters make experiencing the canyon accessible to everyone.

 

Fly over Las Vegas on board a helicopter

Get a chance to jump in a helicopter and fly under the twinkling starlight over the shimmering Las Vegas Strip. Taking to the skies in a chopper is one thing, but seeing Las Vegas illuminated by all its vibrant lights from the sky is another!

Put on your best poker face at the famous MGM Hotel

If you are a fan of poker, you will definitely enjoy your stay in Las Vegas. You can play poker in basically every casino you pass by. But if there is one you can’t miss, it’s definitely the  MGM Hotel. The sheer volume of cash changing hands at the MGM’s high-stakes tables are astronomical!

Become a sniper for a day

Have you ever watched an action movie and wanted to be like the main character, sniping around and never missing the target? Well, put your skills to the test at the Battlefield Vegas shooting experience!

 

Watch the stunning Cirque du Soleil show

Combining high octane athleticism, art, magic, and more, le Cirque du Soleil is one of the most famous and impressive circus producers in the world. People usually walk away in disbelief – it’s just that good.

 

Catch the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena

Home to the newest club in the NHL (National Hockey League), the 20,000-capacity T-Mobile Arena dishes up an atmosphere that can only be described as electric. Outside of the hockey season (that’s ice hockey, by the way), the stadium also hosts high-stakes fights, A-list concerts, music festivals, and plenty more.

Located between the MGM Grand and Excalibur, it’s easily accessible even without a car.

Take a picture in front of the famous Las Vegas Sign

If there is something that simply can’t be missed when you get to Sin City, it’s the iconic Las Vegas sign. Snapping a selfie or two here is a must-do for anyone passing through the area.

 

 

Enjoy a gondola ride at the Venetian

The gondola tours are one of the most iconic activities you could do in Venice. The same statement rings true for The Venetian Las Vegas. The representation of Venice here is stunning, with exactly the same gondolas available as in Italy itself. Onboard, you’ll pass the Ponte Di Rialto (Rialto bridge) and a representation of the Piazza San Marco.
