“Welcome to Las Vegas” Sign
It’s easy to see why the”Welcome to Las Vegas” sign is considered one of the most popular city attractions. This sign, which had been seen across Las Vegas Boulevard since 1959, comes after Mandalay Bay as well as the Little Church of the West at the southern tip of the Strip. This must-see sign, which is a excellent spot to take a selfie, was designed by Betty Willis, a late local artist.
Las Vegas became famous because of the Strip however; the town was able to sustain itself because of Hoover Dam. This engineering wonder was constructed during the Great Depression when tens of thousands of workers badly needed employment. The dam and the power plant can be viewed via several tours at various prices. The dam isn’t only visually striking but also very functional because it provides power to Arizona, California and Nevada through its arched construction.
Lee Canyon in Mount Charleston is one of the more picturesque places. From Vegas, it takes one hour to reach the ski resort, which offers skiing and snowboarding during winter and hiking during summer. Because it looks scenic, most couples choose to hold their weddings during spring and summer.
Las Vegas has a long, complicated history in regards to organized crime and downtown, the Mob Museum is where people will understand the story about organized crime’s influence in Sin City as well as across the usa. Visitors can try a real Tommy gun on display or listen to actual wiretaps. The museum’s centerpiece is the bloodstained wall from the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
Tourists can incorporate this aquarium one of the places to visit with their children and is busiest during summer time. Mandalay Bay guests can find a close look at the aquarium via the program Dive with Sharks by spending a bit more.
The Mob Museum depicts the story of Vegas and how it is associated with organized crime. On the other hand, the Neon Museum uses neon to tell the story of town. Beside Cashman Field off the street of Interstate-15 is a group of businesses and hotels that show Las Vegas’ evolution, from how it started as a stopover on the way to California to being a top tourist destination. There are daily tours but are only limited and sell out quickly.
Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden
The Bellagio Conservatory, like other Vegas’ things, easily attracts crowds. The conservatory, seen from the front desk of the resort, changes all year round due to the 100 plus gardeners that are responsible for the facility’s beautification and care.
