When talking about Last Vegas, the first thing you’re going to think about is the fact that you can go and play at its many casinos and try your luck for the jack pot. However, Las Vegas is huge and there are definitely many other things to do and attractions to visit here. No matter if you plan on visiting this incredible place now or sometime in the future, here are some of the best things you can do when you finally arrive in Las Vegas.
Play Craps at Binion’s
If you know something about craps, then you probably heard about the fact that Binion’s is one of the most popular places where you can enjoy playing the game. In fact, this place is so popular, that you cannot say you’ve been to Las Vegas if you haven’t been here at least once and tried your luck. Binion’s is the place where many fortunes were lost and won and even if you don’t know how to play craps yet, it’s certainly worthy it to learn how to play it before you come here. Playing at Binion’s will redefine the way you think of and see Las Vegas.
Have BBQ at Ellis Island
After playing craps at the Binion’s, you’re certainly going to feel hungry, so how about you head out to the Ellis Island in order to have one of the most delicious barbeques you’ve ever had in your life? This place is not too far away from the Strip and not only is their barbeque simply mouthwatering, but they also brew their own beer which is the stuff of legend!
Atomic Testing Museum
If you drive for 1h N-W of Las Vegas, you’ll reach the Atomic Testing Museum which was established in ’51 in order for the American Government to test nuclear bombs. There were no less than nine hundred and twenty eight nuclear tests done here and when you’ll finally get to the place, that’s certainly going to show: the Nevada Test Site looks like another world and it makes you feel like you’ve just arrived on another planet. Better yet, when you’ll be inside the museum, you can see warheads, old nuclear weapons and even witness a simulated explosion. As they love saying in the museum, it’s certainly going to be a blast!
The Gallery of Fine Art
If you’re the type who is into art, then visiting The Gallery of Fine Art at the Bellagio Hotel is a must. This place houses amazing paintings from famous painters, such as Degas, Renoir and Picasso which are going to take your breath away as you’ll witness them in person.
On the other hand, if you’re the type who loves folk more, then the downtown gathering of open galleries and artists that takes place on the first week (Friday) of every month is sure to make you a happy tourist.
When you think about it, Las Vegas is a mindboggling place that’s not only the home of some of the best casinos in the world, but also the place where you can visit unexpected places where you’ll have the thrill of a lifetime!
