So you’re heading to Las Vegas, you’re sure to check out the classics; The Luxor, Caesars Palace, and maybe a magic show. But away from the classics are some new fantastic experiences that will blow your mind. Make sure on your visit that you check out the five activities below, and you will see why they are amongst the most popular things to do in Vegas.
Head to see Gwen Stefani at the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The show, entitled Just a Girl is named after the famous track of the same name that she performed with her band No Doubt. She will be playing her most famous songs such as Hollaback Girl and What You Waiting For. Stefani is also likely to sing ska pop classics that made her famous with No Doubt before she went solo.
Apex Social Club
As part of a $620m renovation at Palms Casino Resort is the stunning Apex Social Club. Apex has replaced the former Ghostbar on the 55th floor. Here you have incredible views of the strip and a great atmosphere. This new club has a friendlier feel to it and isn’t as busy as the Ghostbar was. Yet it has a much more modern feel to it and is one of the best places to enjoy nightlife in the city. The new cocktail menu featuring almost a hundred to choose from is something that you need to look at.
Also at Palms Casino Resort is the Unknown. This bar has been designed by British art provocateur Damien Hirst and also features 16 of his paintings. Most unique about the bar is the incredible segmented tiger shark behind the bar in three separate tanks. The cocktail menu at the Unknown is also very impressive. Art lovers don’t need to go far; just opposite is the Camden Cocktail lounge, which features works from Andy Warhol. There are many other great places to have a drink, but the Unknown is something extra special.
Located on the strip at the Linq Casino is the largest Ferris Wheel in the world. High Roller is 550ft above the strip and has 28 pods. It takes 30 minutes to do a full rotation, and during this time you have stunning views of the entire strip and the surrounding desert. Why not upgrade to an open bar ticket, and you can enjoy a wide range of alcoholic beverages whilst in your pod.
Just five minutes from the Strip is this unique activity. The aim of the game is to accurately throw an axe at a target against a wall. Staff are on hand to let you practice for as long as you need, will train you the best techniques for throwing and will also provide safety instructions. For just $25 an hour, this one of the cheapest places to have lots of fun in Vegas.
