Las Vegas is a true 24-hour city with casinos, theme-park style rides, nightclubs, boutique shops and the most amazing hotels. In Vegas, the attractions are all based at the hotels themselves and they all have something different to offer. Here are our reviews of tourist attractions in Las Vegas and remember, all our reviews are based on personal visits:
- MGM Lion Habitat, Las Vegas
The MGM Lion Habitat is a free attraction in Las Vegas located inside the MGM Grand casino. At the edge of the casino floor, right next to slot machines and gambling tables is a glass enclosure and the lions appear each day inside it.
- Dolphin Trainer For A Day, Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas
The Dolphin Trainer For A Day experience is based at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas as part of Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden at the rear of the hotel. It’s really expensive but that’s because it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m really glad I did it. I just needed to get all my relatives to pay for it!
- Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas
The Fremont Street Experience is a tourist attraction in downtown Las Vegas. It’s home to some of the oldest casinos from the early days of gambling in the city, before the much larger resort style casinos were built on the strip.
- Las Vegas Neon Sign, Las Vegas
Erected in 1959, the old neon sign on Las Vegas Blvd has been a landmark that has welcomed visitors to the city for decades. It’s now a tourist attraction in its own right and there’s even a small parking area in the middle of the road so you can stop for a photo.
- Paris Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
The highlight here is the mini Eiffel Tower which is about a 3rd the height of the original. We recommend the trip up the elevator to the top where there are some magnificent views of the strip – far cheaper than a helicopter ride!
- Aria Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
This is one of the newest hotels in Las Vegas and is part of the “City Center” development opposite Planet Hollywood on the strip. There are no free shows, but the fountain at the front is fascinating to watch as bursts of water do battle with each other. The hotel is also worth seeing, just to soak up the opulence of the place. You can ride the “City Center Tram” which goes past the front of the building for free too.
