Cool Things To Do In Las Vegas (That Don’t Involve Gambling)
1. See Las Vegas From A Helicopter
One of the most spectacular things to do in Las Vegas is to see Las Vegas from a helicopter. You can even take a helicopter all the way to the Grand Canyon, an experience you won’t forget.
2. See The Bellagio Fountains
Imagine a breathtaking lagoon and water that dances in perfect synchrony with the music. Make sure to watch it both day and night. The effects with the lights at night is completely different from the show during the day. Also, bring a panoramic camera. Best of all, it’s free.
There is a ton of hiking just outside of Las Vegas. The Bowl of Fire is an area of brilliant-red sandstone surrounded by gray limestone mountains. The Frenchman Mountain Summits, Red Rock Canyon, and Echo Canyon are also good areas to hike.

Whether you want to indulge yourself in one of the celebrity chef’s restaurants on the Strip, or save money and eat downtown, one thing is for sure. Las Vegas has incredible food. For steak and table side Caesar salads, check out Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. Bardot Brasserie at the Aria Resort is Chef Michael Mina’s place to indulge in French cuisine. Think traditional French comfort food like mussels, tuna nicoise salad, steak frites, and steak tartare. The Egg & I is everyone’s favorite greasy spoon breakfast spot, and has a variety of choices such as biscuits and gravy and eggs Benedict.
Race fans, if the experience of travelling at 165 mph around the 22 degree banked raceway at Las Vegas Speedway is one that you want to have, then go for The Richard Petty Driving Experience. You will experience a 3 lap ride-along, and learn about the speedway, cars and feature of the complex.
I am always looking for the perfect escape, the perfect paradise, the kind of place that tosses your cares into the sea. Fortunately, I have discovered many! I created this site to show you where to go and how to get there. My goal is to show you that Paradise is only a plane ticket (or boat ride) away. I have inspired many others to travel and to create a better life. I am available for inspirational speaking, coaching, writing, travel planning, and photography.
Great ideas. The Bowl of Fire is such an amazing place to hike and explore the beautiful creations of erosion. And the performances and cuisine offer great experiences in such a rich and vibrant city. – Mary @ Green Global Travel
