Las Vegas

Las Vegas

Las Vegas has transformed itself into a family-friendly city without losing the edge many adults are looking for. So, if you’re going with your spouse and children or with a group of buddies or gal pals, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for to have a great experience.

Here’s a look at great things to do in Las Vegas on and off the Strip.

Gaming for Adults in Las Vegas

You’ll want to hit the casinos, for sure. Places like the Wynn, Bellagio, Venetian, Aria and Palazzo are where the high rollers hang out as well as the celebs when they come to town. The designs of the casinos are amazing, a spectacle, really, and the gaming is always lots of fun. Other casinos worth a mention include Mermaid’s, Margaritaville, the Cosmopolitan, Encore and the Paris.

Fun for Adults Away from the Tables and Slots

The casinos all have multiple lounges, so there’s that option. Away from the Strip entirely, the Number 1 attraction in Vegas is Bullets and Burgers, a private outdoor gun range in the Mojave Desert that is open to the public. Automatic weapons (machine guns) and specialty weapons are among the options you have for unloading a few rounds! Your ticket includes lunch featuring the famous All American burger. Alternatives include the Gun Garage and the Strip Gun Club.

Here’s a list of other top-rated Las Vegas attractions:

  • Battlefield Vegas: Get picked up at your hotel in a genuine military Humvee and be taken to this 5-acre complex that features weapon systems from WWI to Afghanistan. Choppers, tanks, trucks and jeeps are all part of the collection.
  • Dig This: It’s a heavy equipment playground where you get to operate backhoes, dozers and excavators from Caterpillar.
  • Driving Fast Cars: There are at least three opportunities worth considering, World Class Driving, Exotics Racing and the Richard Petty Driving Experience. Drive or ride along at heart-pumping speed!
  • Play golf on one of the area’s many premier courses including the TPC at the Canyons, Shadow Creek GC, Las Vegas Paiute and Badlands GC.

Good Times for the Whole Family

Kids, moms and dads love Kiss Monster Mini Golf, the High Roller Ferris wheel, Buzz’N Brushes art classes and the Roller Coaster at New York New York. You’ll find many kid-friendly shows when you visit Las Vegas, but they change periodically, so we won’t list any by name.

Adventures in Nature

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area offers scenic drives, breathtaking hikes or bike rides and photo opportunities for amateurs and professionals. The intriguing rock formations are gorgeous.

In town, the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens at Bellagio is serene and exciting at the same time. Beautiful arrangements include flowers, shrubs and trees. Something is always in bloom, so the air is fragrant and fresh. 

Other options worth mentioning include the Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, Gold Strike Canyon Hot Springs, the Springs Reserve and Mount Charleston where you can camp, hike, ride horses, watch birds and relax away from it all.
