Winter Sports at the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort

If you’re vacationing here, you’re likely not worried about whether there are other worthwhile things to do in Vegas besides gamble.  Since it’s the location of one-fifth of the country’s casinos, some of which are the grandest and glitziest of them all, there may not be a better place in the country to play the odds than this city.

But what would you do if you tire of the neon lights, noisy slot machines, dizzying roulette games, and restless decks of cards?  If you continue playing, you’ll also effectively prevent yourself from enjoying the many other forms of entertainment that the city has to offer locals and tourists alike.  For starters, since it’s not long now until winter, you should soon visit the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort.

Also called the Lee Canyon Ski Resort, the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort is the city’s premier snow resort.  It’s located along Lee Canyon Road, which is less than an hour’s drive from the Strip.  As the best snow resort in the city, it features everything expected of such an establishment.

Lotus of Siam

As its name implies, Lotus of Siam is all about Thai cuisine.  Located, more or less, 3 miles from the Strip, it offers some of the best northern Thailand-style cuisine in the city.  Unlike Bangkok-style cuisine, which is sweet and tangy, northern Thailand-style cuisine is generous with herbs and spices, and offers coconut-less curries.  So if you’d like to experience the finest in Thai cuisine that the city has to offer, starting at Lotus of Siam would be an excellent choice.

Marche Bacchus French Bistro & Wine Shop

Just a 10-minute drive from the Strip, the Marche Bacchus French Bistro & Wine Shop is a restaurant offering both traditional and contemporary French dishes along with more than 900 exquisite surprisingly affordable French wines.  This restaurant is a favorite of many local chefs, has been featured in several magazines, and has won several awards for excellence, so it would be a good choice to start experiencing the finest in French cuisine that the city has to offer here.

But what if you’ve dined at these fine restaurants already?  Don’t worry; there are many more things to do in Vegas besides gamble.  We’ll soon be discussing them here, so do pay us a visit again.

Explore Majestic Red Rock Canyon

Things to do in Vegas Besides Gamble Explore Majestic Red Rock CanyonIf you were asked about the things to do in Vegas besides gamble, it’s unlikely that you’d mention an outdoor activity.  You’d likely think: there are also restaurants, clubs, bars, and other things I’d rather not mention; that’s it, right?  You’re correct but only partially.  After all, Las Vegas is a city of Nevada, the state that is also basically a desert but features an amazing geography.  Found here are several mountain ranges, valleys, and canyons.  Since the state has these natural features, it would be a good idea to go hiking when you take a trip to the city, starting at Red Rock Canyon.

Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.  It’s the state’s first National Conservation Area.  This means it’s one of the country’s areas the local government protects from human occupation and use.  It covers an area of 195,819 acres.  It features a set of sandstone peaks and high (3,000 ft) walls, which are referred to as the Keystone Thrust.

The things to do here include a scenic drive along a 13-mile one-way loop road, hiking the several miles (over 30 mi) of trails, rock climbing, mountain biking, nature observing, horseback riding, eating and lounging at the several picnic areas, road biking, checking out the exhibit rooms and bookstore at the visitor center, and camping.  Thus, it’s no surprise that more than one million people from all over the world visit it annually.

Although it’s surrounded by a desert, water, 600 species of plants, and various animals (i.e., wild burros, rabbits, ground squirrels, big-horn desert sheep, and toads) are found at Red Rock Canyon.  A veritable oasis, it has attracted several ancient Native American cultures.  No other people have settled here after them.

Early in the 1900s, when people started settling in Las Vegas, manufacturer-distributor American Excelsior Company operated a small-scale sandstone quarry near the northern area of Red Rock Canyon’s one-way scenic loop.  Continuing to do so proved to be uneconomical, so the company shut down the quarry.

In 1967, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) designated 10,000 acres of the state as the Red Rock Recreation Lands.  A special legislation changed the status of the Red Rock Recreation Lands to National Conservation Area, establishing the Red Rock Canyon we know today.  The piece of legislation also provides for funding the canyon’s maintenance and protection.

The BLM is the largest public lands administrator in the West.  It adheres to the ‘multiple (use)’ policy.  This means it provides recreational opportunities, protection for cultural sites, and management of natural resources, including wildlife.  Thus, it’s no surprise that the Red Rock Canyon continues to be one of Nevada’s tourist attractions despite the popularity of the Las Vegas Strip.

There might be little else to do in the Strip besides hitting the casinos, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t any worthwhile things to do in Vegas besides gamble.  As we hope to have proven to you by discussing the Red Rock Canyon, Vegas could also serve as a backpacker’s haven.  But know that this city has more to offer visitors.  You have to explore it to discover them all.

Relive The Old West At Bonnie Springs Ranch

Things to do in Vegas Besides Gamble Relive the Old West at the Bonnie Springs RanchIf you haven’t been here yet, you’ll likely think there aren’t other worthwhile things to do in Vegas besides gamble.  It is, after all, the location of the Strip, which is the part of the country where one-fifth of its casinos can be found.  But you’d be sorely mistaken if you assume there’s nothing worth checking out beyond the city’s entertainment hub.  Within driving distance are several places in which even more forms of entertainment await.  To save you from the hassle of figuring out which one to visit first, we suggest you check out the Bonnie Springs Ranch.

Located southwest of the Strip, more or less 40 minutes away by car, the Bonnie Springs Ranch boasts itself as “an oasis in the desert.”  Indeed, it has much to offer locals and tourists alike.  Its features include a replica Western Old Nevada town, public gunfight and hanging reenactments, a stable, trails, a mini train, museums, a large petting zoo, shops, an events arena, karaoke bars, a restaurant and bar, and lodging with fireplaces and Jacuzzis.  Whoever you bring along—your boyfriend, fiancé, husband, your kids, your family, friends, or co-workers—we trust you’ll have loads of fun at the Bonnie Springs Ranch.

You may relive the Old West at the replica town, live out your cowboy fantasies by horseback or pony-back riding, hike the trails, be taken around aboard the mini train, check out the museums, visit the various animals at the petting zoo, shop to your heart’s content, enjoy the local music, sing your heart out at the karaoke bars, dine at the superb restaurant, sample the local brews at the bar, and kick your feet up and relax at the fine lodgings.

bonnie springs ranchA glimpse into the Bonnie Springs Ranch’s history will show how it was practically destined to turn into a tourist attraction despite being located a way’s away from the Strip.  It was built in 1843 to serve as a stopover for the wagon trains en route to California, down the Old Spanish Trail.  This trail is the country’s historical trade route that connected certain areas in New Mexico with certain areas in Los Angeles and California.

In 1846, American military officer, politician, the first candidate of the anti-slavery Republican Party for the office of President of the United States of America, and explorer John Charles Frémont stopped at the stopover to prepare for his trip through Death Valley.  This stopover was part of his second exploratory expedition into the West to help realize then President Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a western empire.

Doing so may be deemed inconsequential to Frémont’s mission but was instrumental to the stopover’s transformation into a tourist attraction.  Likely made popular by Frémont’s stop at it, the stopover saw an increase in visitors in the following years until it started being used as a tourist attraction in 1952.

But what if you’ve no interest in the Old West?  Are there other things to do in Vegas besides gamble and live out cowboy fantasies?  Don’t worry; there’s much more that the so-called Sin City has to offer locals and tourists alike.  We’ll soon be discussing them here, so do pay us a visit again.

When there are kids in Vegas…

When There Are Kids in Vegas...The night in Vegas comes alive literally (due to the neon signs) and figuratively (because of the never-ending activities). One of the most common and highly appealing “activities” in the area is gambling. And why not? What if today is your lucky day? What if you win tons of cash with just a roll of a die? Surely, if you’ve the extra bucks to dedicate to gambling, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

But, if you go to Vegas with little monsters, I mean kids, clutching tightly on your shirt, you should NEVER go gambling! That’s a big no-no! What if they get a penchant to it and never outgrow it?

So, in this regard, what are some things to do in Las Vegas besides gamble?

The joy of having a BUILDING of M&Ms

Right, one of the things to do in Las Vegas besides gamble is visiting a building filled with 4-floors of M&Ms. Unlike casinos, this place is absolutely child-friendly; they even have a station where you can “personalize” an M&M candy with your own message.

in vegasOr take a history tour back in time

Although the neon signs in Vegas scream modern, there’s a dinner event in the area that screams medieval history! Your kids will be thrown back in time as they see brave warriors defend themselves using swords and they will be dazzled with the view of ladies wearing olden dresses. They even have a pyrotechnics display at the Tournament of Kings!

The family can also have an instant (and very thrilling) Cardio workout

One of the things to do in Vegas besides gamble is to have a cardio workout. But, no, don’t take the kids to a high-class gym. Instead, bring them to Stratosphere where they will only have two and a half seconds before they are thrown upward at the distance of 160 feet. By the way, this ride is called The Big Shot.

When tears are not in their eyes…

Yes, you’ll definitely hear your kids cry so loud when boredom hits them. But don’t worry; another thing to do in Vegas is to watch a very fascinating fountain show. The show is a combination of water display, lights, and thundering music. The best thing about it’s it is free. Your kids will instantly stop crying the moment the show starts.

And they will adore the dinosaurs

If your kids are at that stage when they adore dinosaurs, well, it’s a good thing there’s a museum in Las Vegas that can indulge them. In the museum are life-sized models of the creatures that are believed to have existed centuries ago. The Natural History Museum is also very affordable; it won’t poke holes in your wallet.

The fun on the streets of Vegas

Another great thing to do in Las Vegas is stroll down the streets. And it isn’t because of the shops where you can buy souvenir items, but because of the instant theatrical shows. Your kids will see jugglers, opera singers and dancers, and circus performers! There are even living, moving statues!

Let them learn about their bodies

If your kids love science, or more specifically, anatomy and physiology, why not bring them to Luxor? They will find there how the human body works, and they can even have an insider’s look at the “internal” organs. If you’re a little squeamish, bad for you, but good for your kids because this is highly educational!

So, there are a lot of things to do in Vegas besides gamble; what’s your first pick?

That’s right, las Vegas is a lot more than cards and gambling chips!

Just because your plane ticket announces that you’re headed to Las Vegas, Nevada, home to a lot of casinos and bars, doesn’t mean that you’ve to do exactly just that! There are a lot of places, attractions, and activities in Vegas that you’ve to see. There are also a lot of things to do in Vegas besides gamble! It’s tempting to win a game and triple your money, but that is gambling! You cannot be sure! So, be sure by doing these activities instead.

Presenting, the things to do in Vegas besides gamble:

vegasCirque du Soleil

What can be more exciting than seeing performers fly up in the air while wearing colorful costumes? I have to admit– the ticket to Cirque du Soleil will cost a fortune, but believe me when I say it’s worth it! The circus performers are all topnotch; some of them even qualified and joined the Olympics. The feel of the circus is ultimately Vegas so it should be on the top of the list of things to do in Vegas. If someone tells you that Cirque is boring, don’t believe them!

Belagio Fountain

After spending too much money on the Cirque (although it’s really worth it), you might want to save some penny. If you think that Vegas doesn’t have anything for free, think again. The Belagio Fountains costs nothing and all you’ve to do is be there at the right time. Every 30 minutes from 3 to 5 pm and with 15-minute intervals starting 8 pm to midnight, the seemingly calm lake transforms into very entertaining waterworks! And they even dance to the music! So keep this in mind for the free things to do in Vegas.

Get friendly with the sharks

If anyone tells you that Vegas is all about cards, chips, and losing money,he or she must have not explored the various activities and attractions in Vegas. One great thing to do in Vegas is being up close and personal with the sharks. Don’t worry though; they are safely tacked in a close, sturdy aquarium so you’re safe. At a fair price of $16, the Shark Reef located at Mandalay Bay will fascinate you. It’s also a perfect destination when you’re with children.

Have a pool party

If you want to be more confident in your body, why not join the pool party? There are a lot of pools available in the hotels of Vegas, and it costs so little– just $10-20 — and you’re all set to wear that swimsuit! The logic is this: why do you need to go to the expensive casinos just to have fun when you can make friends with a lot of people also trying out the pool.

Spa all the way!

Okay, just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you cannot take care of your beauty. Vegas is home to a lot of high-end spas; at least once, maybe at the beginning or at the end of the trip, make sure that you experience the Vegas spa, especially if you feel bad about going all out and all night in the clubs and bars! Another fun thing to do in Vegas besides gamble — be beautiful!

W hen tourists hear of Las Vegas, the first thing that comes in their minds is gambling. It has hotels and casinos filled with cards and chips. What if you’re not the betting type? Is there a chance for you to enjoy Las Vegas? Of course! In this post, we will list the best things to do in Vegas besides gamble. Most of them are fun-filled, some are relaxing, and one is very romantic! Ready? Here it goes:

Go bar hopping!

If you’re single, then what’s stopping you from hitting the bars and dancing all night long? Instead of gambling, your stay in Vegas should be filled with opportunities — like (maybe) finding Mr. Right! There’s a very vibrant bar in Vegas named Coyote Ugly Saloon, which is perfect for single ladies who want to have fun. There’s even a story behind it– the owner, Lillian, opted to become a bartender instead of venturing her prestigious opportunity in Wall Street. And now, her struggles paid off; her bar is well-known not just in Vegas, but also throughout America!

Penchant for Circus

Although Vegas is filled with neon lights, it’s not all about cards and chips. Sure, a lot of hotels are themed with the casino feel, but there are still those that want to be different. Circus Circus at the Las Vegas Hotel Casino is one of them. Just imagine this: you step into the hotel and you’re rewarded with heart-stopping acts from some of the world’s most renowned circus performers. It won’t disappoint you; Circus Circus has already been in the industry for 40 years! So, if you’re looking for things to do in Vegas besides gamble, this is one of those things!

las vegasBe a CSI Agent

How can you possibly miss out on this opportunity? The CSI series has taken a lot of people by storm, enough for Las Vegas to have the CSI Experience, and that’s exactly what it is. You’ll be given tasks, and like how the cast in the show are challenged, you’ll have to solve them. Be weary; you’re alone on this one. So, it’s highly advised, before going to Vegas, to have a firm review of the show and hone your skills!

Fly at the sky

I know, skydiving is perhaps one of the craziest things you can do in your life if you’ve even the slightest fear of heights. But don’t worry; in Vegas, you can opt to not do it alone! Yes, one of the best things to do in Vegas besides gamble is being able to skydive with a partner! The fact that you’ll be rushing down the sky at the speed of light (nope, just 80 miles per hour) is a feat to boast about! Who would have thought that you had it in you?

Be romantic

Of course, the excitement will wear out and you’ll want to have downtime, a romantic one at that. Especially good if you’re traveling with a lover, a trip to the Venetian Hotel will have you fall in love all over again. It’s as if you were whisked to another country, in Venice particularly! The interior of the hotel is modeled in the ambiance of the country, and they even have the famous boat ride! So, what can you do in Vegas besides gamble?Fall in love!

Here are some things you can do in Vegas:

Let them read your minds

Did you ever wonder about the mentalists in the TV shows who are able to “read” what’s on your mind? Inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, The Mentalist Show will definitely blow your mind with amazement. The mentalists will have you thinking: was what just happened a figment of my imagination? Is it pure mental intelligence or do mind powers truly exist?

Let them scare you to the point of thrill

Have you heard of Dark Tourism? If you haven’t here’s your chance! Another great thing to do in Vegas is spend your money so that a couple of tour guides can scare you! You’ll pay, ride a bus, and presto, your locations are some of Vegas’ most notorious haunted places! Don’t forget to bring your camera and see if a ghost pops out.

Hone your shooting skills

Do you want to take videos games to real life? That part where you can hold a gun and shoot the enemies? The thing is only your target papers will be the enemy, but hey! At least you’ll be able to hold– and fire– a real gun. And you’re also supervised, so all is safe.

Dine in the sky

How would you feel if someone told you that one of the greatest things to do in Vegas is being suspended in the air, approximately 150 feet, and eating a sumptuous meal? If you’ve a weak heart and get sick with just imagining, then move along. However, if you feel excited, then go straight to Vegas!

in vegasBalloon Ride with the rising sun

Do you want to feel the sun against your skin, up close and, uh, personal? Not that you’ll have to ride a space rocket and be propelled to the center of the solar system; you just have to ride a hot air balloon! The sun, together with the scenery, will take your breath away, in a very good way. If you want to see the sunset, that can also be arranged!

Get hooked with the King of the Jungle

Do you want to see The Lion King live? Vegas is a perfect place for that! This is also one of the best things to do in Vegas: watch theater performances! Disney’s Lion King Show is also perfect for when you bring kids, but anyone who loved the cartoon movie will feel the fascination, regardless of age! The Mandalay Bay Resort offers the Lion King Show.

Swim with the Sharks

And finally, you can go swimming… with the sharks nonetheless! You’re in a huge hotel and not in the open ocean, yet you’ll still be able to safely mingle with the giants! Visit the Mandalay Bay Hotel for more information if you want to take on this activity!

Vegas is a city known for its gambling opportunities. From one point to another, there are casinos where you can try your luck. You can play cards to your heart’s content and the value of your chips may go endless. A small bet can give you ten times the reward. Who wouldn’t be appealed by that? The only problem here is when gambling becomes too much for you to handle. What if the money you’ve for your trip in Vegas is just enough for you to have fun? And that fun doesn’t include your “risks” of losing.

See the lions up close

If you ever wonder what it would feel like to be faced with a living, breathing lion, Vegas is the place for you! Visit the Lion Habitat Ranch, where most of the retired lions from the MGM grand now live. You’ll be amazed at how “up close” you’ll come in contact with them. Don’t worry though; it’s perfectly safe. The lions are caged in a study glass panel. The place is very pleasant; the interaction between the lions and the caretaker is a sight to behold.

in vegasTake your time with the Ferris Wheel

Everyone has heard of the London Eye? Many mistake it as the tallest wheel ride across the globe. The reality is this: the High Roller in Vegas is the tallest Ferris Wheel there is! So, if you’re still wondering about things to do in Vegas besides gamble, this activity should be on top of your list! Not only will you be able to boast about it among your friends, but the fulfillment it’ll bring you’ll be priceless.

Feel the Zombie Apocalypse

Okay, what with all the talk, series, and movies about zombies, you’ll surely be intrigued about the things to know about the Doomsday involving the undead. But of course, who wants to be scared out of their wits. Another rule when visiting the most populous area in Nevada is this: have fun with the Zombie Apocalypse Store. Not one thing about this shop is scary; you’ll find a lot of novelty items that will have you laughing out loud.

Satisfy your hunger

Amidst your strolling and sight seeing, another thing to do in Vegas is to satisfy your hunger– grandiosely! Visit and dine at the Studio B Buffet at the M Resort. Sure, it’s located in a casino, but you won’t gamble; in fact, you’ll hardly spend money. The menus are delicious, but they are priced very fairly! Remember, you still have a lot of things to do in Vegas, so you must have the energy!

Fascination with the Neon Lights
