In Vegas, which pioneered the art of reinvention, there's always some new hot spot to explore. And now you can reacquaint yourself with the city from 550 feet above the Strip—by taking a spin on the High Roller Ferris wheel.
The record-setting attraction, opened in March 2014, is one of our favorite Vegas experiences and more proof that the legendary Strip keeps getting better. Nearly every hotel is getting revamped, and dozens of new restaurants are opening. Luckily for visitors, Vegas packs its thrills into a few miles, making it easy to cover a lot of ground, even in 24 hours.
You might sip cocktails poolside at a day club; brush up on Sin City history at the Mob Museum; or have a close animal encounter at the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. After dark, there's something for everyone, whether you're in the mood for dinner at a celebrity-chef restaurant or drinks at a karaoke dive bar.
And here's an insider tip: head to downtown's Arts District the next morning for the hangover brunch at Bar + Bistro. A cup of its whiskey-spiked cappuccino, and we bet you'll be ready for more of the fun only Vegas has to offer.
