The Strip’s major attraction is its casinos, but there are plenty of things to do in Las Vegas that don’t involve gambling. When you need a break from the tables, you’ll find there’s no shortage of choices for sightseeing, exploring and having fun.
On the Strip, you’ll find fountains, volcanoes, fabulous shows and even gondola rides. Downtown, you can get a glimpse into the checkered history of Las Vegas at The Mob Museum, one of the city’s unique museums. The Neon Museum is another place to find unusual Vegas history–it’s the place where old neon signs are retired.
The weather in Las Vegas is terrific for most of the year, which makes outside activities an option most of the time. Take a drive out of town to see historic Hoover Dam, or hike over the red sandstone in Red Rock Canyon. Las Vegas isn't the only thing in the Mojave Desert, and you'll find plenty of options for day trips into the surrounding area. Outdoor sports like hiking, golf and tennis are popular.
For the adrenaline junkies in the crowd, thrill rides may be just the ticket. Adventure-seekers will find zip lines and roller coasters, and some of those rides are at the top of very tall buildings.
