Most people who head to Las Vegas do so to try their luck at one of its world renowned casinos, but if you are looking for alternative activities to pass the time in Sin City then there are actually a huge variety of options.
To act as some inspiration when you book your trip to Las Vegas, here are just some of the things you can do that do not involve gambling.
Catch a Golden Knights ice hockey game
It might seem strange that an NHL team is based in such a famously desert-bound city, but the Golden Knights have proved to be a hit with the locals, earning a loyal following and always putting on a good show when they hit the ice.
Tens of thousands of Las Vegans have season tickets to the Golden Knights, but there are always plenty of tourists in attendance at the games, creating an electric atmosphere that is well worth experiencing, as well as a chilly temperature in the arena that is a welcome break from the blistering heat outside.
See a show
Las Vegas is arguably the entertainment capital of the world, with hundreds of different shows to see across many leading venues.
One of the best things about seeing a show in Las Vegas is that you are pretty much guaranteed a good time, since only the best of the best get to earn a residency in the city.
Visit a theme park
Las Vegas can feel like one big theme park, but there are actually dedicated places to enjoy a range of rides and experiences if that is the kind of thing that gets your pulse racing.
There are high octane roller coasters to leap onboard at the Circus Circus Adventuredome, there is the famous Big Apple Coaster that loops and swerves high above the strip at New York-New York, and there is even the Wet’n’Wild Water Park which has a host of pools, flumes and other water-based features to enjoy.
Rock out at a music festival
There are lots of different live music events that take place each year in Las Vegas, once again catering to a variety of tastes and budgets.
One of the biggest festivals to emerge in recent years is the Electric Daisy Carnival, otherwise known as EDC. It really does have a carnival atmosphere and is the top event to attend if you are an acolyte of the modern EDM movement.
If you are more of a rock fan, the Las Rageous festival might be more appealing. Previous years have seen acts including Bring Me The Horizon and Rob Zombie take to the stage in front of huge crowds. And with so much accommodation available locally, getting a room for one of these events is generally easy no matter the time of year.
