Top things to do in Las Vegas 

With a wide variety of things to do in the city, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are some of the top things to do when traveling to Las Vegas.

See the Bellagio fountains

The famous dancing fountains are one of the most popular things to see in Vegas. More than 1,200 fountains create a beautiful display set to lights and music outside the Bellagio hotel. The shows take place every half an hour during the afternoon and every 15 minutes in the evening. Best of all, it's free.

Enjoy world-famous concerts and shows

Many headlining acts perform in Las Vegas regularly. You can book a long-standing show or find exclusive events, depending on your preference. Park Theater is one of the most popular venues to see the likes of Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, for example. The main hotels also have resident acts, such as the Blue Man Group at Luxor and Penn and Teller at the Rio. Whatever your taste, you’ll be sure to find a show you’ll love among hundreds of special events and ongoing concerts or shows presented in Las Vegas year-round.

Freemont Street Experience

A bright and fun pedestrian mall in downtown Las Vegas, the Freemont Street Experience expands over five blocks, offering free live music and light shows. You’ll find performers, as well as a variety of shops, casinos and varied attractions. Enjoy Freemont Street Experience day or night as it is open 24 hours.

Visit the Mob Museum

Are you interested in the history of the mob and organized crime? The Mob Museum in Stewart Avenue Downtown gives you an insight into the past, telling real-life stories about organized crime in old-time Las Vegas and throughout the country. Expect interactive exhibits and interesting artifacts in the museum that's located inside a former courthouse building.

Take a selfie at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign

No trip to Vegas is complete without a visit to the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Taking a picture here is a great souvenir and a fun snap to share on social media. The sign is located at the bottom of Las Vegas Boulevard near the airport, and although it is free to visit, you should expect a queue to take your turn. It won't take long, though, and you will come away with a worthwhile picture and memory of your trip.

Ride the High Roller

This 520-foot Ferris wheel offers some great views across Las Vegas Boulevard. Take a 30-minute revolution ride in one of the 28 glass cabins and spot the famous sights from the sky above. You are likely to have to share your cabin with up to 40 other passengers, but there is plenty of room to sit or stand and admire the views. There are also options to book the cabin for a happy half hour, which includes an open bar.

Getting around Las Vegas

While the Las Vegas strip can be walkable, you may also want to consider some transport as the strip expands over four miles. If you are visiting Vegas for a special occasion and if you're with a group of people, then you might want to spring for a limousine to drive you around.

The monorail is the easiest and probably the most affordable way to travel up and down the strip. It runs every few minutes, and tickets are available in single rides, and multiple-day passes. Other options include renting a car, and hailing or booking the many taxis you'll find all around the main areas. The Deuce bus system is also another affordable way to get around. Some all-inclusive packages to Las Vegas will cover your transport, so it's worth checking out these types of deals. Ride-share services are another popular solution and are widely available.

Best time to travel to Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a popular destination year-round. March through May, as well as September through November are the best times to travel to Las Vegas for an enjoyable break. December and January are the busiest winter months.  June through August tend to be the hottest and driest months to visit with temperatures above 98°F (36.7°C). But don’t worry, there are plenty of places to stay cool with lots of indoor attractions, shopping and shows.

As Las Vegas is also a go-to for organizations looking to host conventions, you should also check what's happening in Vegas before you book your dates. Even if you’re not planning to attend these events, this can mean busier venues and higher prices. Book your flights and hotels in Las Vegas with Ya Vas to find great deals and vacation packages, no matter when you want to travel.
