Las Vegas is a veritable playground even if you’re not that into casinos. While the slots and tables used to be the main attraction in Sin City, they’re almost an afterthought for many Vegas visitors today. There’s just so much else to see, do and experience here. With its luxury resorts, world-class spas, top-chef restaurants, premium golf courses, spectacular shows and endless shops, Las Vegas will never leave you bored. Here are 11 things to do in Vegas besides gamble.
1. Red Rock Canyon
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is just outside the city and is a top natural attraction for outdoor enthusiasts. Climbing to the top of the rocks can be a workout, especially in that desert heat, but it’s worth it just to enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding terrain. Red Rock Canyon makes for a exciting excursion when you feel like taking a break from the bright lights of the Strip.
2. Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
The Bellagio is famous for its dancing fountains, but it also boasts a conservatory with 120 gardens that are nothing short of enchanting. Free to the public and open all day, every day, these gardens are a rare peaceful oasis in a city that isn’t exactly known for its tranquility. However, this being Vegas, the botanical beauties are bedazzled with incredible Vegas-worthy constructions and highlighted by incredible light shows you have to see to believe.
