Las Vegas is a mecca for sensorial experiences. It is teeming with attractions, ranging from the simply sublime to the completely over-the-top. It is also brimming with high-octane energy that’ll have you exploring every part of the city. Now, if you do visit Vegas, we want you to make the most out of your visit. So here are some interesting sights for you to take in.
Take a stroll around LINQ Promenade
CNN Travel suggests LINQ Promenade is more than just a shopping center, as it is an attraction in its own right. It starts off on The Strip, and stretches all the way to the famous High Roller, which is, at 550 feet tall, the world’s tallest observation wheel. It is lined with high-end shops and boutiques, where you can do some shopping, as well as a range of dining options — In-N-Out Burgers, Flour & Barley, and Benihana to name just three — for plenty of tasty meals. Although, before dining out you might want to try Fly LINQ first. It is a heart-stopping zip line that’ll have you soaring over the Promenade at a staggering 1,800 feet.
Watch a classic
Las Vegas isn’t the Entertainment Capital of the World for nothing. It is the ever-gracious host to concerts, plays, and all sorts of entertaining productions. But among these shows is one true classic: Mystère. It is one of the six resident Cirque du Soleil shows, and features energetic performances that include a teeterboard act, some high-wire acrobatics, and lots of dancing. This thrilling ride starts with Brian Le Petit, Mystère’s resident clown doing some, well, clowning around. The rest of the show transitions into a breathtaking experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
