Las Vegas is loved by many people in many different ways. Whether it be the gambling, party scene, entertainment, etc.; there’s something in this city for everyone. What do I like the most? The views. It all begins as the plane starts to descend. Just as the clouds part you witness how amazingly glamorous this city truly is. After doing a bit of exploring, I’d like to share with you my favorite locations that feed your eyes with excitement. Enjoy!
If eating, gambling and staying weren’t enough already, the Stratosphere practically threw in an amusement park, as well. I know you’re probably trying to figure out where, since the design of the building is extremely tall and not so wide. I guess to find out, you’ll just have to make your way to the very top! Once you make your way up, you can chose to relax on the observation deck and enjoy the city at day or night. If you’re an adrenaline junkie like me, buckle your seat belts! The stratosphere offers a completely different, thrilling way to see the city. How about staring straight down at the strip, while being spun 900ft high over the Tower’s edge? Need more? Strap into the Big Shot and prepare to be shot 160ft in the air from the 921ft-high platform. If all that isn’t enough for you, just jump from the 108th floor. No, seriously. SkyJump is an open-air leap from 829ft above the strip. Just be sure to take an extra change of clothes with you… just in case 😉
The infamous High Roller. Currently the world’s biggest observation wheel, this monument is pretty hard to miss. I realize for some that this attraction can seem pretty amazing until they realize it takes 30 minutes to complete a full round. So why not spice it up a bit? Each cabin is big enough to hold up to 40 people. Invite some friends, order a couple rounds of drinks, and enjoy the Vegas views! My favorite experience the High Roller offers is their elevated yoga journey. Spend an hour in a soothing yoga lesson while soaring 550ft in the sky. Namaste!
There’s no better way to escape the crowded streets and exhaust fumes, than a tour of the Grand Canyon. Drive to the rim, or fly right over it. These breath taking views are one for the bucket list! I recommend taking the tour by helicopter if you aren’t on a budget. The ride takes you for a bird’s eye view, as well as, taking you 4,000ft below the rim of the canyon. A lot of the tours might even upgrade the natural beauty by throwing in a snack or lunch. And I mean, who doesn’t love food? Yum!
