More Ways to Have Fun in Las Vegas

One of the great things about hotels and casinos in Las Vegas is that most of them are extremely large and offer a wide range of onsite entertainment options. Here are some of the main attractions that visitors to Sin City can enjoy while staying in style.

Stratosphere

Get a bird’s eye view of Las Vegas at the top of the tallest observation tower in the whole of the USA. Stratosphere rises to an impressive 1,149 feet and boasts two hair-raising rides that thrillseekers are sure to love. The Let It Ride High Roller is certainly not for the faint of heart as it is the world’s highest coaster, while the Big Shot flings riders 160 feet into the air, giving them the unique opportunity to experience zero gravity before plunging them into free fall to the platform that stands 800 feet above street level.

This attraction is home to the original adobe fort that was used by the first ever Mormons to settle in the Las Vegas Valley. This fort was built by missionaries that came from Salt Lake City back in 1885 and was abandoned just one year later because of the harsh weather and life conditions in this part of the USA.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway

People who feel the need for speed are sure to enjoy zooming around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This is considered by those in the know to be one of the best in the world and it features a tri-oval speedway that comes complete with a one and a half mile speedway and short-track as well as a 3.8-mile paved oval track and an exciting dirt track and drag strip. A large number of NASCAR events are held here throughout the year, as well as other high profile events.
