Las Vegas is the perfect place for adventures! It’s a vacation location where you can cut loose and explore some unusual and extraordinary attractions. If you’re visiting Las Vegas soon, check out some of these lesser known attractions to find something a little more unique to do.
The Neon Boneyard is a guided tour that houses some of the most famous Las Vegas signs that have been retired over the years. The two-acre museum has over 200 signs, including those from New York-New York, Lady Luck, and the Palms Casino Resort. Perfect for history buffs and old school Vegas lovers, explore the fascinating story of Las Vegas through its neon signs.
Race Exotic Cars
Everyone dreams of racing a Lamborghini or a Ferrari — and now, your dreams can come true! If you can’t wait to get behind the wheel of an exotic car, Las Vegas is the place to do it. You’ll find tons of companies that plan driving events for tourists like you right on the Vegas Strip!
Zipline Over Fremont Street
Fremont Street is a must-visit location in Vegas. It’s a bar and casino packed walkway that boasts a Times Square vibe with big signs, lights, and special events. After a quick walk through, you should definitely visit Slotzilla to zipline 12 stories above the glittering street at speeds up to 40 miles per hour!
Watch a Gunfight
While these ghost towns aren’t super close to Las Vegas, they’re still less than two hours away from the Strip. Visit Chloride and Oatman in Arizona for a wild west adventure in two of the coolest ghost towns around. Both provide fodder for cheesy photos with cowboys, wild donkeys, and outlaws. You can even watch a gunfight and get “shot”.
Shoot Big Guns
What’s better than watching someone shoot guns? Shooting them yourself!
You may have a shooting range in your hometown, but can you shoot Barrett .50 Cal Sniper Rifle, M1919 Browning, and an M249 SAW all on the same day? At a shooting range in Las Vegas, you can. Choose from packages that cater to your interests, rent individual guns based on your preferences, or shoot 300 rounds out of a helicopter for the ultimate thrill ride!
Play with the Animals
Everyone loves petting zoos, but if you’re looking for animals that are a little more exotic, check out the exotic animal sanctuary about an hour off the Las Vegas strip. At Roos ‘N More, you can interact with monkeys, kangaroos, leopards, bear-cats, and so much more!
Prep for the Zombie Apocalypse
Doomsday prepping is taking hold of Americans everywhere, but the zombie apocalypse may actually be the thing that takes over the world! Who needs basic gas masks and canned foods when you can browse through a variety of weapons, unique dehydrated foods, and life-like zombie dolls that can be used for target practice?
Visit the Zombie Apocalypse Store to find everything from guns disguised as cell phones and tomahawks to freeze dried scrambled eggs and bleeding zombies that squirt red liquid when struck.
Jump off a Cliff
If you’re the outdoorsy type, you may want to travel a little outside of Las Vegas to visit some of the other places throughout Nevada — like the cliffs at Nelson’s Landing. It’s a great place to swim and sunbathe, and you can also jump off a 50 foot cliff into the cool, clear water!
Walk Through a Car Forest
One of the furthest attractions from Las Vegas, the car forest in Goldfield, Nevada, is still worth a visit if you’ve got some time to spare. Full of older cars that have been painted and posed, this art installation car forest is a fascinating way to spend a day.
Descend Down Through the Stratosphere
Known as the SkyJump, this attraction holds the Guinness World Record for the highest decelerator descent at a height of 829 feet! Leap out of the Stratosphere tower for a wild ride that’s a lot like bungee jumping.
Visiting Vegas doesn’t mean that you have to stay on the Strip. Leave the world of casinos and slot machines behind for a while, as you check out some of the more unique attractions in Sin City.
