Las Vegas is not just about gambling. And it’s not just for people over 21. Las Vegas is for absolutely everyone, offering a whole world of wonders jam-packed on to one grand and glamorous street—Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Boulevard (a.k.a The Strip) has something for everyone. If you’re a thrill seeker or sight seer, a shopper or sunbather, a gambler or gamer, the Strip will keep you entertained! Each hotel represents a different theme. You’ll experience New York, Venice, Greece, Egypt and Paris! And you’ll visit a castle, see pirates in action and watch a volcano erupt.

Free Shows

Free is a word you rarely hear in Las Vegas. After all, the food, shopping, accommodations and shows certainly don’t come cheap. But you’d be surprised how many “on the house” entertainment options the Strip has to offer, the best of which you’ll find at Bellagio and Mirage.

The Bellagio Hotel’s world famous fountains perform an amazing water dance every 15 to 30 minutes. And the Mirage Hotel’s manmade volcano erupts every fifteen minutes in the evening, giving a ground-shaking, steam-spewing, fire-flying performance.

Arcades

Almost every hotel on the Strip has an arcade. But some have a lot more to offer than others. You’ll find arcades at Bally’s, Bellagio, Flamingo, MGM, Monte Carlo, Riviera, Sahara, Stratosphere, Treasure Island and Tropicana. But the best arcades in Vegas can be found at Excalibur, Circus Circus and New York, New York. And for a real gaming experience, don’t miss GameWorks, the biggest arcade on the Strip with over 200 games!

Adventure Rides

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try the Roller Coaster that scales the rooftops of New York, New York. Or try one of the three thrill rides at the Stratosphere: the High Roller Coaster, Big Shot (an elevator ride that shoots you skyward), and Project X Sky (a giant seesaw 1000 feet above ground). You can also head over to Circus Circus and experience the extreme, adrenaline-pumping rides at the Adventuredome.

Shows

The variety of Las Vegas shows is limitless. There’s comedy, magicians, musicians, theater, impersonators and hypnotists. See Cirque de Soleil or the Blue Man Group, magic and illusion by Lance Burton or Criss Angel, or get everything in one package with Terry Fator—a singer, ventriloquist, impressionist and comedian!
