Nestled in the Nevada desert lies Las Vegas. Hotels, casinos, discos, and restaurants compete in this city of sin for space between neon and glitter. Many people do not like Vegas – the party, the glamor, the expensive resorts, the fancy atmosphere to be seen and seen. But these people are focusing on the negatives of Vegas.
Always blown away from the city, the fantastic mix of restaurants, restaurants, people, concerts, shows, and events. Las Vegas has much more to do than the Strip. And despite all the wealth shown, it’s pretty easy to pick up freebies in Vegas.
Trip to the Grand Canyon
The best way to avoid crowds is to come at the right time of the year. The busiest time of the year is from Memorial Day (late May) to Labor Day (early September), which is also the hottest time of the year. December before Christmas, January and February are the slowest times of the year.
The view from the southern edge is spectacular for the vast panoramas, but to experience the canyon. You should take the time to do at least a short walk below the rim and see it on a different scale. If geology has always seemed boring to you, the Grand Canyon is the place to prove you wrong.
Visit the Hoover Dam
The world-famous Hoover Dam is about an hour away from Las Vegas. And of course many opportunities to go over the dam and take lots of pictures. Thirty-five miles south of the city you will find the Hoover Dam. If you want to visit the Hoover Dam, the first place to start is at the visitor center.
It’s tempting to stop and take pictures of Hoover Dam, or stop and take everything with you. Do not stay in the street. Look up as you walk and see another marvel of engineering: building an immense bridge across the river just down the river from Hoover Dam.
The Mob Museum
Located in downtown Las Vegas, the Mob Museum shows both sides of the infamous battle between organized crime and law enforcement agencies. There are high-tech theater presentations, unique artifacts, and interactive exhibits. It will teach you about the Las Vegas so perpetuated in movies like the Casino.
The crimes range from bootlegging to betting, drug trafficking, and murder. Men, and occasionally even women lured by prey, became entangled in a complex network of crimes that provided short-term satisfaction but rarely sustained rewards. Guests take part in an intense, eye-opening workout that uses both digital and live role-playing scenarios to demonstrate the speed and complexity of using force decisions.
Experience Fremont Street
The glamor, lights and high prices of the Strip are all a far cry from downtown Las Vegas. You’ll find sketchy bars, sad casinos, cheap drinks, and more of a New Orleans Bourbon street atmosphere. It’s a great area for entertainment, people watching, cheap slots, more affordable drinks, and a more relaxed atmosphere.
The glitz, the lights, and the high prices of the Strip are all a faraway land compared to Downtown Vegas. While Las Vegas is known never to turn off the outdoor casino light, every show starts with all the buildings.
Visit the Neon Museum
This outdoor lot is loaded with the huge signs that once lured you into casinos like silver slippers, Stardust, and El Cortez. The museum has recently been expanded to include more symbols, a park, and guided tours of its collection. Now you can explore the sinful past of the city on this casino cemetery.
It’s pretty cool to wander through these ancient signs, learn the city’s history as you go, and get a different perspective on Las Vegas. Las Vegas locals consider the signs, business owners and government organizations as not only artistically but also historically significant to the city’s culture.
