Visiting Vegas for some can be a once in a lifetime experience. Most people only have a few days to enjoy all that Sin City has to offer. Given the multitude of options it’s a difficult decision to choose what to experience in your time here. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of ten things to cross off you Sin City Bucket List.
Take your picture at the sign (yes for real.)
Yes, its cheesy and yes, it’s a total tourist trap but looking back it will be a memorable moment on your vacation. Imagine how many people have done the exact same thing and now you have something in common with them. Can we say #LIT?
If you see something for free, might as well do it.
Despite popular belief (insert eyeroll) Vegas will try and take you for all that you got. To save up your wallet try to do the free things offered in Vegas. The good thing is there is literally something for everyone. Try Ethel M’s chocolate factory or the animal habitat at the Flamingo. Trust me free stuff isn’t hard to come by and who doesn’t like free?
Visit the Pawn Stars while you’re here
Located right on the boulevard the Silver and Gold Pawn Shop is your one stop shop for pretty much anything you can think of, and yes this is the actual store from Pawn Stars. Pop in for a look at their inventory or schedule a tour. Either way you’re sure to hit gold with this spot.
Embrace Vegas History
While Vegas is well known for its persona it’s a great idea to get to know the culture of the city as well. Check out one of the many museums and exhibits. Featuring several Hall of Fames there is sure to be something for everyone. And did I mention Vegas has art museums too? For those with more refined taste check out the Las Vegas Art Museum and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.
Tap into your inner child
Release your inner lumberjack and throw axes at the newly opened Axe Monkeys, drive construction equipment at Dig This, and shoot machine guns at several artillery ranges. The possibilities are endless.
Have breakfast at the Peppermill
Get a piece of old classic Las Vegas. Located on the main strip, the Peppermill restaurant stands as a testament to good old classic times. Opened in 1972 the Peppermill has stood the test of time and has become a staple in Vegas. Why not take a taste yourself?
Hit a Vegas buffet the right way-don’t go cheap
Hit up a bacchanal of taste and wonder at any of the many amazing buffets Vegas has to offer. Ditch the $5.99 meal deal and go for the premium gourmet selections. Whether in the mood for tastes of the far east or something close to home Vegas has something for everyone.
Take a selfie at the Fountains of Bellagio
I’m Sure everyone has seen a photo of these fountains at least once. Whether celebrating a wedding or just a girl’s night out, the fountains provide an amazing backdrop for any occasion. As the site of several videos and events in Pop culture this is definitely a spot to check out.
Vegas isn’t Vegas without Freemont. Offering a vast assortment of entertainment and nightlife options, Freemont is the spot to be. Come check it out on first Friday. Or really another day. Freemont is the hub of the north end of the strip.
Jump off the top of the Stratosphere
Jump out of a perfectly good building? Yes, lets do it! Descend over 800 feet from the top of the Stratosphere and see the excitement for yourself. As the only Sky Jump in North America and the largest in the world this attraction is a surefire way to complete any bucket list.
