Want to glam it up, go nightclubbing or dine at celebrity chef restaurants? Done and done! Off the strip you’ll find revitalized neighbourhoods, a heavy equipment playground and an otherworldly desert canyon to explore.
Here’s a look a 5 very different, super fun ways to inject some oomph into your next Las Vegas visit.
Downtown Las Vegas
Wonder where local hipsters hang? They head downtown to experience vintage Vegas. You’ve got your Fremont Street experience with its old school casinos, and the Gold Spike is party central.
Head here to shoot pool and take on massive (as in life size) games of Connect Four, Jenga and beer pong. Downtown Container Park is a family friendly spot made of shipping containers stacked upon each other.
There’s an outdoor playground, indy shops and authentic Mexican at Pinches Tacos. Another great resto to try is Therapy, an unassuming joint that serves up the most decadent chicken and red velvet waffle slider.
If you’ve ever fancied tearing up Las Vegas real estate, now’s your chance. You can dig yourself into a real, legitimate hole at Dig This, an unusual attraction where Tonka trunks come to life in a four-acre sandbox.
Several excavators and bull dozers are on site and after a brief safety lesson (and breathalyzer!), they’re yours for the taking. You’ll learn how to stack tires, dig holes and even play basketball with your big machine.
