Things to do in Las Vegas

Showy Sin City has reinvented itself countless times. Today, Nevada’s famous neon-lit town has something, literally, for everyone. Whether you’re a vacationing family, couple, or group of friends, you will find endless ideas for things to do in Las Vegas—shows, shops, casinos, nightclubs, spas, and even historic sites and nature preserves—in our travel guide.

Travel + Leisure insiders share their favorite finds for how to have fun in Las Vegas. From rooftop roller coasters and sexy bars with handcrafted cocktails to cult-worthy patisseries and a downtown warehouse housing some of the city’s most exciting artists, we tell you where to go and what to do in Las Vegas, highlighting the city’s top activities and attractions.

You may have heard of the Neon Museum, Red Rock Canyon, and the dancing fountains at the Bellagio, but we also take travelers to more unusual points of interest, like the highly sustainable CityCenter (which houses three LEED-certified hotels), the super-secret Downtown Cocktail Room on revitalized Fremont Street, and the surprisingly traditional Roman baths of Qua Spa at Caesars Palace.

If you go for the high-rolling glitz and glamour, the retro-kitsch, or the desert offerings, our travel guide is your go-to resource for planning a Las Vegas getaway.
