One of the top reasons to visit Vegas is without a doubt the nightlife – home to countless casinos, clubs, and bars, it’s no wonder as to why. An amazing nightlife scene isn’t all this city has to offer though. Here are 10 out-of-the-box things to consider checking out in the city.
1. Meow Wolf
Meow Wolf is most simply an art installation, but this wholly understates the experience that this interactive exhibit offers. You’ll traverse a seemingly normal grocery store to discover a variety of otherworldly, interactive hidden rooms and exhibits. Tickets are available online.
2. Red Rock Canyon
Vegas might be synonymous with nightlife and other big-city attractions, but there are some great opportunities for outdoor activities nearby the city. Red Rock Canyon is one such place. Featuring a scenic drive and a variety of trails, there are numerous ways to experience this beautiful area.
3. The Neon Museum
This quirky museum features “The Neon Boneyard”, an eccentric “graveyard”. The final resting place of giant neon signs from times past, it’s a wonder to behold.
4. The National Atomic Testing Museum
When you think of the history of Las Vegas, you might think of either the glamorous casinos and entertainment or the more sordid history of organized crime. The National Atomic Testing Museum, however, brings light to another part of the area’s dark history. It offers a look at atomic testing that went on in the area.
5. The Bellagio Chocolate Fountain
This attraction offers a fun sightseeing opportunity and some mouthwatering candy! Located in the Bellagio Hotel is a giant chocolate fountain. While you can’t drink from the fountain itself, this sculpture is part of a candy shop where you can grab plenty of delicious treats to enjoy.
6. Dig This
If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at driving a bulldozer, this is the opportunity for you! Dig This is a quirky and memorable amusement park that offers the chance to operate a variety of construction vehicles. This one’s fun for all ages, as it also offers some kid-friendly experiences in addition to giving adults an opportunity to have a great time. Tickets can be booked online.
7. Zak Bagan’s Haunted Museum
Zak Bagan’s Haunted Museum is the perfect option for lovers of all things spooky. This museum sits in a purportedly haunted mansion. It features collections of all sorts of eerie artifacts – from supposedly cursed objects to haunted dolls. Tickets are available online.
8. Monster Mini Golf
Monster Mini Golf has two locations in Vegas, each offering a unique – but trippy – mini-golfing experience. The first is a Twilight Zone-themed course, featuring all manner of glowing ghouls and aliens. The second is themed after the band KISS, and also showcases some memorabilia from the band. Tickets can be purchased for either online.
9. SlotZilla Zipline
This one’s probably not for those with a fear of heights, but if you’re looking for a thrill, head over to Fremont Street to experience SlotZilla. SlotZilla offers two ziplines – a lower 7-story tall one as well as an 11-story tall one.
Finally, if you’re looking for an out-of-the-box experience you can sit back and enjoy, consider seeing Criss Angel’s Mindfreak magic show. Far from your traditional card tricks or pulling a rabbit out of a hat, Criss Angel rose to fame with some mind-boggling stunts such as levitating over Vegas. While the shows are a lot of fun to watch, they can contain some elements that could be scary or disturbing to younger children – something to keep in mind if traveling with family.
