5 Tips For Getting the Most Out of Your Vegas Vacation
1. Get Up Close and Personal with Sharks
While Vegas may be known for the Strip and its nonstop nightlife, it is also home to one of the most extraordinary aquariums. The Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay will take you on a breathtaking undersea journey featuring more than 2,000 aquatic animals and over 100 different species. If you’re feeling brave (and are a certified diver), you can experience the exhibit on another level and swim with over 30 exotic sharks.
2. Head to Lesser Known Venues For the VIP Treatment
Las Vegas has plenty of shows to go around, but if you’re looking for a more intimate experience check out the smaller theaters. For example, the Park Theater at MGM Resorts — which has only approximately 5,200 seats – lets you feel up close and personal with artists.
3. Visit the Grand Canyon
If you’re coming to Vegas from another part of the country, it’s worth making the trip over to the Grand Canyon. There are helicopter tours available that will take you to the West Rim. On this side of the canyon, you’ll get to see naturally-carved rock formations like Eagle Point and experience the Skywalk Bridge, which is a glass walkway nestled in between the canyon walls. If you have more time, you can take a bus to the South Rim or drive for about 4 hours by car to the National Park.
4. Experience Beautiful Works of Art
If you want to get in touch with your artsy side, be sure to check out the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art located at Bellagio. The premier exhibition space has featured some of the world’s most compelling exhibitions including “Picasso: Creatures and Creativity,” “Fabergé Revealed,” “Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston,” and “Warhol Out West.”
5. Get the Full Spa Experience
If you want your vacation to be more about relaxing than site-seeing, look for a hotel with an in-house spa. The Vdara Hotel and Spa has two floors dedicated to its ESPA, which offers everything from full-body mud treatments to aromatherapy massages. ESPA is also a fully device-free zone, which means you can truly unplug and enjoy the indulgence.
