Gambling defines Las Vegas. All of the major holiday resorts in Las Vegas are tied to a casino resort while every TV production in the city is more or less inspired by what happens in the gambling world i.e. the romantic and good side of Las Vegas or the nasty, violent and ugly side of this beautiful city. While gambling is part of Vegas’ culture, there are also other places offering recreational activities totally different and not in any way connected to gambling. Thanks largely to a digital marketing company that has been putting these places in the limelight, many people now are beginning to enjoy the other side of Las Vegas.
Fremont Street Experience
Las Vegas is one of the oldest cities in the US and if you want to know what life in days gone by was like in this part of the world, you better take a walk in Fremont Street. Fremont Street is for pedestrians only and it houses unique remnant structures of America of the early 1900s. Each day, Fremont Street plays host to a musical performance, visual show and special outdoor performances. If you have massive reserves of energy, your Fremont Street Experience can start from the Strip (area with the most number of casino resorts in Las Vegas).
Helicopter Rides Over The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a natural beauty located in the city of Las Vegas. On foot, getting right around the Grand Canyon can take the whole day or even two if you are not used to trekking. However, with the aid of a helicopter, it takes only a couple of hours or even less to get right around the Grand Canyon. Not only will you see the majestic beauty of the steep slopes, you also get the chance to capture great aerial photographs of the whole area from above. With more funds to spare, you can increase your helicopter ride from not only covering the Grand Canyon but the entire Las Vegas city.
Venetian Hotel And Gondola Rides
The city of Venice is popular the world over. Since William Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice book was released, more and more people have been wowed by the beauty of Italian architecture epitomised by this wonderful city. In an effort to provide those who have been unfortunate not to travel to Venice to see the city up close, Las Vegas decided to construct its own city of Venice. The Venetian hotel in Las Vegas was designed in the same mould as Venetian buildings. The hotel has Venetian themed attractions which include gondola rides and even replicas of the Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs.
Paris Hotel And The Eiffel Tower
Another of Las Vegas’ emulation of another popular city is the Paris Las Vegas which consists of the Paris Hotel and Eiffel Tower. The hotel serves delicate French cuisine and the Tower has become one of as Vegas’ most visited places. The majestic Eiffel Tower offers incredible 360-degree views and comes with neon and flashing lights resembling a mock hot air balloon.
