5 places to visit in Las Vegas

When you think of Las Vegas, the first thing that comes into your mind is gambling. That’s closely followed by entertainment but there’s a lot more to see too. Let’s look at five places you should consider visiting when heading to Las Vegas

The Wynn Las Vegas Casino

If you are going to Las Vegas there are plenty of casinos that you can go to. The Wynn Las Vegas Casino is regarded as one of the very best to visit when the COVID-19 pandemic is over, and it can re-open. You can be playing all the top table games such as roulette, blackjack and craps.

It isn’t just about gambling though, there is some top-notch entertainment planned for the future. This includes shows by musicals star Lea Salonga, John Fogerty and Le Rêve – The Dream. With a Michelin Star awarded Chinese restaurant, fish fresh from Hawaiian waters and other award-winning restaurants, you aren’t going to go hungry here. Throw in the Wynn and Encore Esplanades for your shopping, a spa and a golf course and a stay here is an experience you will never forget.

At present, that’s all on hold due to the pandemic. In the meantime, you can go online and join a casino. There’s so many to choose from and have plenty of games including slots that have some great prizes to be won. Before joining one though, carry out some research and visit a site that provides a full app guide and tells you just where the best online slots can be found.

The Hoover Dam

A trip to Las Vegas is incomplete if you don’t go to see the Hoover Dam. It can be seen in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River and that’s located on the border between Nevada and Arizona. Building the dam saw over 100 people die and it was originally called the Boulder Dam. 1947 saw it renamed the Hoover Dam in tribute to President Herbert Hoover.

When it comes to sight-seeing, the Hoover Dam is right up there with the very best the USA has to offer. There’s a panoramic view including the Nevada spillway entrance and the Penstock Towers in Arizona. It’s a view even better than a royal flush in a game of poker.

Coming Soon - The NFL

Here’s a new one to add to the list. The 2020 NFL season will see the arrival of the Las Vegas Raiders. Formerly based in Oakland, the franchise has moved to Las Vegas. It’s a great addition to an already packed list of entertainment in Las Vegas. Do some sight-seeing, go to the casino or a show and take in an NFL match. It just keeps getting better and better. Games will be played at the Alegiant Stadium, which opens in July of this year with matches beginning in September. Who knows you could see a Superbowl winner?

The Las Vegas Strip

This is a 2.5-mile-long walk that will have you gazing in wonder at what you see. It’s in Las Vegas Boulevard and is packed with hotels, entertainment palaces and more. It’s best to go in the evening as it’s lit up by neon signs.

The Grand Canyon

Rather than just walking along the Las Vegas Strip, why not take to the skies? There are several helicopter tours you can go on. These don’t just give you a great aerial view of Las Vegas but can take you to the Grand Canyon too. Some tours last up to six and a half hours with incredible views. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, so there’s plenty to see.
