Making the Most of the Las Vegas Strip

It's one of America's most prominent tourist locations. Drawing in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year to the bright lights of Sin City. It's not just the stereotype of all-day gambling here though - far from it in fact. The strip is more of an entertainment hub, family-friendly and full of excitement and opportunity. Partner that with the high-class, well-priced hotels that line this famous stretch and you've got yourself an incredible holiday. So, without further ado, we present to you the best that the Las Vegas Strip has to offer...

Take a trip to Venice

Yes, you read that right. Our first recommendation for the strip is to take a trip to Venice, in spirit at least. Achieve this with a trip to the Venetian Hotel and take in the marvels of the Grand Canal. Take a stroll along the cobblestone walkways that line the indoor canal and relish the fabulous atmosphere of the place, before taking a ride in an authentic Italian gondola to polish off your visit. 

The Grand Canal is also lined by an unrivalled selection of shops and restaurants which add yet more class to the experience. Take in world class dining after an afternoon of shopping at some of the world's best-loved and most coveted brands.

Solve a Murder

Head to the MGM Grand and see if you have what it takes to catch a killer and solve a triple murder as you enter the world of the hit TV show: CSI. Take on the role of a crime scene investigator in this thrilling, interactive experience which will leave you fascinated by stunning special effects and in awe of the two state-of-the-art forensic crime labs set up for your use.

You'll be guided by videos of actual cast members and real-life forensic scientists as you perform realistic tests and experiments. Match DNA samples, examine bullet casings and identify potential clues as you endeavour to solve the murder against the clock!

Ride Around the Big Apple

Hail a cab inside New York - New York and get your thrills on The Big Apple Coaster for heart-stopping action from the get-go. Whizz around this daunting track at speeds of up to 67mph, hurtling through sharp turns, twisting around angles and flying through a loop-de-loop as you go. All of this is done in front of an impressive New York backdrop in cars kitted out like the famous yellow cabs of the city. 

See the Flamingos at the Flamingo

You certainly can't accuse Las Vegas of not being glamorous or of providing a range of entertainment for that matter. In true glitzy fashion, the Flamingo excels itself with one of the most unique attractions in Las Vegas with Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat serving as a fabulous free option for visitors. It should come as no surprise to you that this exhibit is home to Flamingo Island with a huge flock of Chilean Flamingos, as well as an eye-catching collection of other colourful birds, fish and even turtles living at the Habitat. 

This peaceful spot is the perfect place to get away from the buzz of Vegas for an afternoon and is a popular stop for families to learn about the animals present and to take home the souvenir of a photo with one of the resident parrots.

See a Volcano Erupt

Possibly the last thing you would have expected to see on this list, but it's true, you can see a volcano eruption and it might be right outside your hotel. That's exactly what will happen if you stay at the Mirage Hotel anyway. The hotel's iconic 'front yard' is an explosive one with an impressive alternative to the more traditional water fountain. The towering volcano that sits outside only comes to life in the dark of the night, when it erupts on an hourly basis with shattering explosions, spectacular fireballs and with a soundtrack to match the fiery atmosphere.
