Deciding what to do when you finally reach the Las Vegas Strip can be an ordeal. Overwhelming bright colors and flashing lights advertise countless activities everywhere you look. To help you sort out your itinerary, we came up with our top six things to do on the Las Vegas Strip.
1: Lost Games Escape Room
Our top pick is the family-owned and operated Lost Games. Here, you can book private escape room experiences that combine environments on par with movie sets with unique interactive puzzles. You and your friends only have one hour to solve the riddles and escape the room, and you will have a blast doing it.
Its large rooms mean that you can have a group of up to eight people, and all of their experiences are private so that you and your friends can enjoy these adventures without worrying about strangers. While it is located on the Las Vegas Strip, you should be aware that this is one of the few establishments that discourages drinking while playing.
2: Cirque du Soleil
Las Vegas is the only city with seven different Cirque du Soleil productions in residency. You can enjoy amazing acts of acrobatics and stunning choreographed artistry during any of these live performances.
These visually impressive performances take inspiration from various cultural and natural elements, making the show put on by each resort unique. For example, you can enjoy a show inspired by Michael Jackson at Mandalay Bay or a performance centered around water at the Bellagio.
3: Bellagio Fountains
If you want to take a break outdoors, you can enjoy a free light and water show from the fountains in front of the Bellagio. The fountain’s jets shoot water in time with over 30 different popular songs every 15 to 30 minutes. This lake spans eight and a half acres and features over a thousand jets that shoot water up to 460 feet in the air.
Inside the Bellagio, you can also tour a fine art gallery and botanical gardens. The Bellagio gallery features an impressive permanent collection with pieces from famous artists such as Rembrandt, Andy Warhol, and Monet. Its botanical gardens change to match the season and holidays so that you can enjoy new plants and flower displays every time you visit.
4: Slotzilla Zip Line
You can enjoy an aerial view of Las Vegas by taking a zip line from the world’s tallest slot machine. Starting 12 stories high, you can zip down Fremont Street past casinos and through a light canopy in a thrilling experience.
The Slotzilla zip line can either take you halfway down Fremont Street for five blocks or down the whole street. It is also suitable for guests of all ages as long as you meet the weight requirements of 50 pounds for the lower zip line and 60 pounds for the higher one.
5: Chandelier Lounge
For a more sophisticated indoor experience, you can drop by the Chandelier lounge for exquisite drinks and cocktails. It is located in the Cosmopolitan inside of one of the world’s largest chandeliers.
The lounge itself is divided into three layers. The bottom of the Chandelier has a bustling bar in a classic casino style. Its second floor offers a sanctuary dedicated to providing hand-crafted cocktails that will impress even the most seasoned mixologists. On the top floor is an inviting lounge that lets you appreciate the artistry of the Chandelier.
6: World Class Golfing
Las Vegas is home to dozens of golf courses, including some of the best in the world. You can try your luck at scheduling a tee time at the illustrious Shadow Creek or try other noteworthy courses such as Wynn Las Vegas, Coyote Springs, and Cascata. Most casinos will help you arrange a day pass for these courses. Be aware that these high-quality courses can be pricey, and make sure to schedule for early in the day to avoid the worst of the desert heat.
You can find a more affordable and casual golfing experience at Topgolf’s Las Vegas location. This establishment has three levels from which you can drive golf balls as you enjoy the Strip skyline view during the day or at night. You and your friends can enjoy a private bay and order from an expansive menu of food and drinks. One of the main attractions is the Pretzel Board, which houses a charcuterie and fruit plate inside a giant soft pretzel.
If you are looking for a change of pace from the casinos, visit Lost Games and book an escape room experience today.
