Hey everyone, welcome back to SKLifestyle! Today is the start of our travel series! We were lucky enough to travel around different parts of the world and wanted to bring you all along for the journey. Within this travel series we will be sharing with you our favourite things to do, see and eat in different parts of the world. Our first stop was Las Vegas, the home of Gambling & Entertainment. Vegas is known for its entertainment, flashy lights, landmarks and casinos which is why you will never be bored here. Listed below you will find some things we recommend to do while in Las Vegas.
- The Neon Museum Las Vegas:
This museum is a one of a kind peak into Las Vegas history. This outdoor museum saves and preserves all the original neon signs of businesses, casinos and other famous land marks that retired. If you love the flashing lights this is a perfect spot for you! The museum holds different exhibitions, with this year’s host being none other than director Tim Burton! His exhibition begins in the fall of 2019, a must see for everyone! General admission fee is $22 and it open from 9am to 7pm, if you book online you’re also able to get discounted tickets!
- Fremont Street
Freemont street is the original center of this city, located in Downtown Las Vegas. It was the home to some of the first casinos in Las Vegas such as Binions & Horseshoe. There are so many different things to do while on Freemont street such as ziplining or zoom-lining at Slotzilla. You can either fly seated, across 2 blocks of Freemont street at the height of 7 stories,with the ziplining experience for $25. OR you can fly superhero style, 11 stories high for 5 blocks with the zoom-lining experience for $45. If you fly before 5pm any day you save $5!! This experience is a must for all people who enjoy heights!
You can also swim with the sharks at the Golden Nugget hotel! This hotel features a $30 million pool, featuring a shark tank for visitors to experience at a distance or up close by riding on the pools three story water slide! The slide is open from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Sunday. The link allows you to read more into the pool, the seasonal hours of operation and the pricing for non-hotel guests. https://www.goldennugget.com/las-vegas/amenities/h2o-pool/
- Hotel experiences
Las Vegas is filled with some of the finest hotels you will ever see in the world, such as The Bellagio, Paris, The Venetian, Wynn, and Caesars Palace to name a few. Even if they are a little out of your price range you can still experience all they have to offer by taking a tour through their casinos, pools, shops and more. Whilst on the strip we took a stroll and visited a few hotels, our favourites were The Bellagio and The Venetian.
The Bellagio hotel is known for its sensational water fountain display, which is a must see for anyone who visits Las Vegas. The iconic display involves complex choreography intertwined with lights, water and music. Each performance is completely unique, so no matter how many times you see it you’ll always have more in store.
The Bellagio hotel is also known for its Botanical Garden. Each season the garden is transformed into an exhibit of distinctive sights and colours of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. We were lucky enough to experience the Japanese Spring display, where the garden was filled with Cherry Blossom Trees, flowers and plants, bringing vibrant colours and peace to all visitors.
The Venetian hotel is like no other. This hotel is a tribute to Italian luxury, recreating the art of Venice from the infrastructure to the Gondola rides outside. For anyone who loves ice cream, we recommend you pay a visit to Co Co Lini II. This is the best ice cream spot in Vegas where the flavors are incredible & the servings are overly generous.
Prepare to be wowed by the hotels in Vegas!
- Eating places
We ventured to several different eating places while in Vegas but our two favourite spots were Benihana & La Tequileria. Benihana offers Japanese cuisine, is relatively affordable (especially if you get the lunch deal!) and is an experience you’ll never forget. Whilst dining at Benihana you have the choice to sit at a community table, where an entertaining chef will cook your meal in front of you on an iron griddle, making your experience one to remember.
La Tequilieria is a premium tequila lounge that offers 150 different tequilas, amazing cocktails, great food & great service. We were even lucky enough to get our Guacamole made fresh in front of us by the waiting staff. We both recommend these resturants to everyone that goes to Las Vegas.
So these are the places that we vsited during our stay in Las Vegas & highly recommend. We can’t wait to go back and enjoy more of what Las Vegas has to offer. Let us know if you have any other places in Las Vegas you would recommend seeing!
