What are the most popular spots in Las Vegas?
Thirty-two million people visit Las Vegas every year, making it one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Known as a gambling mecca, it has steadily grown since its inception in the early 1900s. It began around 1925 by adding casinos and hotels. It evolved through the decades with resorts, restaurants, music, and sports venues, and just about anything under the sun can be found in this once desert oasis turned into a glittering gem.
The most Instagrammable views can be seen when you book your Grand Canyon helicopter tour with Gray Line Las Vegas!
With a temperate climate year-round, it’s easy to see why Las Vegas holds some of the most popular spots to visit. No other place is quite as historically interesting with stories of mobsters and prostitutes, neon lights, and illicit gambling back in the day. It’s an adventure you want to add to your bucket list.
Las Vegas currently has around 150 casinos, most are connected to hotels and resorts. But be careful because photos are not allowed inside casinos for privacy and security reasons. Outside is where you’ll want to be to take your popular shots of Las Vegas.
What are the best tourist spots in Las Vegas?
There’s an endless amount of tourist attractions in Las Vegas. You would have to live there all year just to see them all. Here are a few of the best places tourists go:
- The Strip has 31 casinos and hotels on a 4.2-mile stretch on Las Vegas Boulevard
- Fremont Street Experience was once the center of commerce in Las Vegas, where the first paved street was established. It was in existence before the famous Strip
- The Mob Museum teaches the unique history of crime and law enforcement
- The Neon Museum allows photos of a vast array of neon lights and signs
- Cirque du Soleil is exhilarating, but it’s not allowed to take photos!
- Hoover Dam was erected in 1931 and has 7 million visitors yearly
- Lake Mead is at the base of Hoover Dam, making it another scenic tourist spot for photos
And don’t forget about the Grand Canyon. Wait! Isn’t that place in Arizona? Part of it is, but the canyon’s west rim is in Nevada and only hours away for a day trip out of Las Vegas. The Grand Canyon actually touches two other states; Utah and Colorado. However, it is mostly known for being easily accessible when in Vegas. The Colorado River runs through it, flowing down to Lake Mead Recreational Park in Nevada.
Did you know you can take an incredible Grand Canyon helicopter tour? You can also tour the SkyWalk that rises 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. It’s an exhilarating experience (and very Instagrammable) you can have with Gray Line Las Vegas.
Another Gray Line Las Vegas tour to experience is to ride a Mississippi-style paddle-wheel boat on Lake Mead. Right next to it, you can tour the iconic Hoover Dam, built in the 1930s, which sits 60 stories high above the Colorado River.
Book a tour of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam together to catch those Instagrammable moments!
