Other Entertainment Options

Las Vegas is known as the Live Entertainment Capital of the World! Below is a list of a few activities that do not automatically come to mind when thinking of Las Vegas and give options to those that do not enjoy the flashing lights of the traditional Vegas visit. There really is something for everyone to do in Las Vegas.

Natural Attractions

Lake Mead

Lake Mead NRA offers year-round recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, hiking, photography, picnicking and sightseeing. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive where rain is scarce and temperatures can soar.

Red Rock Canyon


Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada’s first National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. The area is 195,819 acres and is visited by more than one million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers enticements of a different nature including a 13-mile scenic drive, more than 30 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, picnic areas, nature observing and visitor center with exhibit rooms and a book store. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert.


National Atomic Testing Museum


Designed to be a highly interactive experience, the exhibits include touch screens, motion-sensitive plasma TV presentations, audio interviews with former workers from the test site, and various other multi-media components.

Mob Museum


With the city’s reputation as a world-class destination, it’s hard to believe that less than 30 years ago hotels in Vegas were still run by the mob. The scenes depicted in the Martin Scorsese film “Casino,” weren’t just good film writing. That was Vegas. Visitors can learn all about the city’s sordid past.

Neon Museum


The Neon Museums mission is to collect, preserve, study and exhibit iconic Las Vegas neon signs for educational, historic, and cultural enrichment.

Pinball Hall of Fame


The Pinball Hall of Fame was created by the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club to house and display the world’s largest pinball collection, and is open to the public. The games belong to club member and owner Tim Arnold, and range from 1950s up to 1990s pinball machines. Since it is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are prevalent, as this was the ‘heyday’ of pinball.


Caesars Forum Shopping. 11/28/05

New York. London. Paris. They’ve got nothing on us. Las Vegas is home to some of the most spectacular shopping in the world. From high-end shopping centers like Crystals and Via Bellagio to outdoor malls like Tivoli Village and Town Square, Vegas has it all.

On a budget? The Las Vegas Premium Outlets has south and north locations. All about variety? Fashion Show mall, Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and Forum Shops at Caesars Palace have hundreds of stores at every price point imaginable.

With signature courses designed by such legendary names as Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus, you have a wide variety of challenging and breathtaking Las Vegas golf courses to play on.

The Strip


When you think of Las Vegas, you think of Las Vegas casinos. They’ve been glorified in films and on the small screen. And for good reason. They’re everything you’ve been told and more. The lights. The sounds. The pulsating energy. You’ll love every second of it.
