I had heard a lot about Las Vegas before coming to America. But of course, everything was hearsay. Surprisingly, Las Vegas is not about gambling alone. There is much more that the city offers in terms of entertainment and getting your heart pumping. So if you want to visit Vegas and gambling is not your cup of tea then this is a must-read for you.

A Visual Delight

The true beauty of Las Vegas comes out at night only. It’s as if the city leaves behind the cover behind which it was hiding and rises to present a delightful picture that overwhelms your eyes. The entire Strip is alight with huge signboards and digital displays along with thousands of twinkling lights. If you are not running on a tight budget, then you can admire the beauty of Vegas through the LINQ High Roller and the replica of Eiffel Tower at the Paris.

Adding to the beauty of the night is the Bellagio fountain. Water, light, and music come together in a romantic display that leaves you wanting more. The Mirage Volcano gives you a chance to experience drama. The performance of fire, smoke and music indeed sets your heart racing. Most importantly, both these delightful bonanzas are free to watch and don’t cost a penny. You just need to be there on time as they start at fixed timings.

Getting The Adrenaline Pumping

If you are an adrenaline junkie, then Vegas is sure to come as a pleasant surprise. The SlotZilla zipline on Fremont Street is the place to begin. The Upper Zoom Line will leave you feeling like a bird soaring in the sky. If jumping is your cup of tea, then the Stratosphere is where you need to head next. The Sky Jump will set you screaming and heart pounding. Finally, to settle down your stomach you can take a ride on the Roller Coaster at the New York-New York hotel and casino.                          

So how wonderful is that! Spending a good few days in Las Vegas and not emptying your pockets on just gambling. Finally, make time for sightseeing and enjoying the gastronomical delights of Vegas.
