The words “Las Vegas” alone might enough to conjure brightly-lit signs and spinning roulette wheels, but casinos aren’t the only thing Nevada’s famous city has to offer. We’ve got a few recommendations that we think are worth taking a chance on.
Sure, you’ve heard of a million stories of people who’ve gotten married in Las Vegas on the fly… some even married and divorced on the same weekend! However, you can still have a wedding just as fun and extravagant (or not: your choice!) if you plan it out in advance. You’ll find that las vegas marriage packages are not just plentiful, but include tons of fun activities and twists: you can get married at some of Nevada’s most breathtaking locations like the Valley of Fire and Nelson Ghost Town, or hitched by Elvis himself (an impersonator, of course… or so we think!). Las Vegas does plenty of traditional-style weddings too, so research and pick what you like best.
See the Grand Canyon
Despite being in Arizona, Las Vegas offers plenty of round-trip tours to the rocky wonder, including by bus and even by helicopter. If you’re short on time, a chopper trip to the Grand Canyon may actually be ideal, as it’s comparatively shorter and gives you a one-of-a-kind aerial view.
Visit the Many, Many Sites
You can wander the famous Las Vegas Strip by car or by foot, which becomes especially breathtaking when all the lights go on at night. Vegas is also home to one of the renowned Madame Tussauds wax museums, featuring jaw-dropping, detailed sculptures of your favorite celebrities and fictional characters. If you like free attractions, check out the Bellagio Fountains, which have dancing water shows every 15-30 minutes. Oh, and did you know Las Vegas has an Eiffel Tower of its own?
Whether you’re there for a week or a weekend, you can have fun in Vegas even if casinos aren’t your thing. No matter what you do, you’ll likely come out a winner.
