Las Vegas Travel Guide

Updated on September 16, 2013

What is there to do in Las Vegas?

You can do just about everything in Las Vegas short of deep sea fishing! This town has everything. I know when most people think of Las Vegas they think of craps tables and slot jockeys, but there's so much more available than just casinos. You can hike some of the most gorgeous canyons in the world or view one of the world's largest aquariums. You can ride a helicopter to the Grand Canyon or jet ski on Lake Mead. Las Vegas is one of the only places in the world where you can skydive without jumping out of an airplane.

Enjoy my tour and travel tips for Las Vegas. I'll be adding to this frequently, so check back often.


Only certain parts of Las Vegas, such as the main part of The Strip and Fremont Street, are walkable under normal circumstances. For getting to off-strip hotels and casinos, traveling from The Strip to Fremont Street, or if you're checking out any of the non-casino based attractions listed on this page, you'll want an alternative form of transportation. Here are a few of the ways you can get around Las Vegas:

Las Vegas in the 1950s


Las Vegas Hotels

The following hotels are located on The Strip in Las Vegas:

The following hotels are not on the main part of the Las Vegas Strip. Some are located on Fremont Street, while others are off side streets or located elsewhere in the area. Some, like the Riviera and Stratosphere, are located on Las Vegas Boulevard South ("the Strip"), but are not on what is considered the walking part of the Strip.

I should also note that with the recent economic downturn there have been a lot of hotels and casinos closing in Las Vegas, and the ones in the area of Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas seem to have been hit the hardest. All of the ones listed after Stratosphere are "downtown hotels" and should be considered endangered, so visit them while you still have the chance.

Las Vegas shows

There are probably more shows to see in Las Vegas than just about any other place in the world, with the possible exception being the theater district in New York City. Whether you are looking for something that will make you laugh, cry, or wonder is astonishment, there is a show in Vegas for you.
