Vegas is the world’s adult playground, but what if you aren’t exactly into gambling? Well, there is so much more to do in Las Vegas than just hang around spending money in casinos. Here are some of things to do in Las Vegas that are off the beaten path.
1. Take a Leap of Faith
Adrenaline junkies rejoice! This Las Vegas attraction allows you to jump 829 feet above the Strip, off of the Stratosphere Tower. On the way down, you’ll hit speeds of 40 miles per hour. This Las Vegas attractions holds the Guinness world record holder for world’s largest commercial decelerator descent facility.
2. Feel A Little Naughty At the Burlesque Hall of Fame
In a frisky mood? As one of the only collections dedicated to the seductive art of risqué dancing in the entire world, the Burlesque Hall of Fame may be the only museum that prefers visitors that are over 18. The exhibit includes several thousand costumes, stage props, photographs, and personal effects documenting the careers and lives of burlesque dancers, comics, and producers across nearly a century of performances.
3. See The Neon Boneyard
Neon signs are synonymous with Las Vegas. In the Neon Boneyard Museum, you can see all the old signs dating back decades in a somewhat spooky dystopian environment.
4. Visit The Simpsons
Well not really, but you can visit the Simpson’s house. It was built to look exactly like the home of one of America’s favorite cartoon families. It’s definitely worth taking the side trip to take an epic selfie.
5. Go International
It truly is a place like no other, but if you want to ride a gondola on the canals of Venice and see the Eiffel Tower all in one afternoon, Vegas is the place for you. The Venetian Hotel recreates the romantic Italian city complete with private gondola rides you can take. Or see a scale replica of one of the world’s most famous attractions at The Paris Hotel just a little ways down the strip. Seeing these recreated iconic locations should be on your list of things to do in Las Vegas!
6. See What It’s Like To Be A Made Man
The Mob and Vegas have a long history together, so it only seems natural for the Mob Museum to be in Sin City. From the time of the prohibition to modern day mobsters, you can learn about some of the most notorious Cosa Nostra in the world.
7. Drive An Exotic Car or Even a Bulldozer
Even though Las Vegas is a playland for adults, it doesn’t mean you can’t cater to your inner child. There are places you can test drive a luxury car on a private race track or even take a shot at driving a bulldozer and other large construction equipment.
8. Be A Pinball Wizard
Like old school arcade games? A visit to the Pinball Hall of Fame won’t let you down with over 10,000 square feet of wall to wall pinball.
9. Have Some Atomic Age Fun
Before it became Sin City, Las Vegas was an atomic testing site. At the Atomic Testing Museum, you can go retro and get a tour of underground bunkers, see what it’s like to be at ground zero and take a look at all the atomic age memorabilia.
