Las Vegas for People Who Hate Casinos

Best Things to Do in Las Vegas That Aren’t Gambling

ขออภัยค่ะ หน้านี้ยังไม่มีการแปลเป็นภาษาของคุณ

    Hitting a jackpot may sound appealing to some, but Las Vegas offers plenty of other exciting activities and unique museums for people who don’t like casinos. Many hotels in Las Vegas are close to theme parks, where you get to enjoy gravity-defying roller coasters, games arcades, and entertaining street performances all day long. 

    Las Vegas is surrounded by stunning natural landscapes, so take a drive away from The Strip and Las Vegas Boulevard to explore vast canyons and state parks, which are ideal for camping and hiking. You also get to check out ghost towns and gold mines dating back to the 1800s. If spending hours at a slot machine isn’t your idea of fun, here’s a list of things to do in Las Vegas other than gambling.


    Las Vegas pool parties

    Lounge on poolside cabanas overlooking Las Vegas

    Hitting up a pool party lets you indulge in daytime drinking and dancing to live DJ sets in Las Vegas. Sin City has some of the world’s wildest rooftop pool events, such as Rehab at the Hard Rock, The Aquatic Club at The Venetian, and Venus European Pool Lounge at Caesars Palace. These clubs also offer luxurious cabanas and sunbeds with expansive views of Las Vegas.

    High Roller

    Ride one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the world

    At a whopping 550ft tall, the High Roller certainly offers some impressive views of The Strip and across a lot of Las Vegas. It takes about 30 minutes for each of the 28 pods to do a full revolution. Each pod can carry up to 40 people and, for an extra fee on top of the usual ticket price, you can get a personal bartender to join your journey. If you do, be sure to go to the bathroom before you do because there isn’t one in the pod.

    Stratosphere Observation Deck

    Jump off the Stratosphere

    Stratosphere Tower, standing at 1,149ft, is among the tallest freestanding observation towers in the western hemisphere. Enjoying the view from the top with a nice meal at the revolving restaurant is certainly pleasant, but the unique attraction is the SkyJump. Possibly the scariest of the 4 thrill rides available, it allows you to basically jump off the tower and hurtle towards the ground in a controlled descent similar to a bungee jump, reaching speeds of up to 40 mph straight down.
