5 Things You Must Do in Las Vegas

Greetings all! I’m Sally and I’m over at Life Loving. My blog is my way to inspire others to get out and about and enjoy life more. I live by the motto ‘ketchup tomorrow, relish today’. The lovely Vicky has kindly let me put together a guest post about Las Vegas, which I visited recently. I thought it might be a good way to give you a hit list of the top things to do in sin city.


Go Downtown

If you are staying on the strip, it should be one of your top priorities to make sure you take a trip to downtown Las Vegas. The downtown area is impressive, especially in the evening. They have lots of street entertainers, live musicians and the hotels are lit up by thousands of lights. There’s also a giant screen which runs above the visitors for 1,500 feet along Freemont Street. This shows a six-minute light show every hour.


Book a Cabana

Las Vegas isn’t actually a very relaxing break. You do a lot more walking than you realise. The strip its self is four miles long. So don’t cram your days full of everything you can imagine, instead, have a mix of busier days and quieter days. I’d highly recommend booking a cabana at one of Las Vegas’s famous hotel pools. My husband and I booked one at Paris and enjoyed a day lounging by the pool, catching a few rays, reading our books and sipping cocktails.


Visit the Grand Canyon

This was the one thing we didn’t do on our trip and regret. The pictures look breath-taking, so I can only imagine what it looks like in person. You can get a coach over or you can really splash out and take a helicopter flight. If you choose to, you can get dropped off and have a spot of lunch too. They’ll be plenty of time to take some awesome landscape shots (and those selfies).

Go Ziplining

There’s a couple of options in Las Vegas. You can go for a quick zip line across Freemont Street or do as we did and book a canyon ziplining experience. We went up to Red Rock Canyon and enjoyed five super long and scenic zip lines over the beautiful canyons. If you are going, I’d suggest you book an early slot, as it gets really rather hot in Vegas. I’d also suggest lathering yourself in plenty of sun cream, as you are out in the sun all day.




See the Fountain Show

You can’t go to Las Vegas and not see the fountain show at the Bellagio Hotel. The show runs approximately every 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the time of the day. Each show is different and last approximately 6 – 7 minutes. It’s not as crowded as other cities’ fountain shows, so you can easily get to the front to enjoy the best view. And worth mentioning - it’s actually a free thing to do in Vegas. Vegas is notoriously expensive so it’s nice to plan something free into your budget.



I hope this has inspired you with what to see and do on your Las Vegas trip. Obviously, you should have a little flutter in a casino, but there’s a lot more to do than just that. If you are planning a trip to Vegas, I’d love to hear what you’re going to see and do. You can drop me a line on my socials.
