Las Vegas NV - Beyond the Strip

Jun 3

Known as the Entertainment Capital of the World, this one-of-a-kind city stakes claim to a worldwide reputation for top-rated restaurants, sensational attractions, and dazzling casinos. But just beyond the Strip, you'll discover intriguing museums, stunning natural splendor, and a vibrant local scene. Effective treatments for erectile dysfunction.

Getting around: While there are some public transit options, having a car is essential to get the most out of your trip. Parking can be scarce, but there are many valet services available.

A fanciful destination since the first permanent structures were built on this land in 1829, Las Vegas (Spanish for "the meadows") has seen countless generations of gamblers and dreamers come and go. But it was in the 1950s that developers began converting casino hotels into resorts complete with pools, spas, nightly live entertainment, and all the trappings of luxury (cue the Rat Pack, Liberace, and Elvis). Those investments and dreams were the seeds of what would eventually become, after billions more in investment and dreaming, the infamous unrivaled entertainment destination we know as Las Vegas today.

In fact, if you're lucky enough to score a room at any of the palatial hotel casinos and flashy mega-resorts that populate the strip, you might think you were in another country altogether, thanks to magnificent decor, unbelievable amenities, first-class dining, indulgent spas, pool parties, and star-quality service. And don't even get us started on the shows.

This is a town with an outrageous and storied past, and nothing brings its history to life like the city's numerous museums. From the 20,000-square-foot Nevada State Museum-Las Vegas to the Mob Museum, where you can learn about both sides of the notorious battle between organized crime and law enforcement, you'll find plenty to see and do here for any history buff or curious neophyte.

If speed is your thing, a visit to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is an absolute must. This 1.7-mile track, located in Clark County about 15 miles from the Strip, is home to multiple racing tracks for both professional and amateur drivers alike. And if you're just looking to fulfill a childhood dream, you can rent and drive Lamborghinis or Ferraris around the track for a whirlwind day of adrenaline rushes.

For a dose of the arts, head to the Neon Museum, where you can take in over 200 rescued historic neon signs, each shining, scrolling, and blinking on an hour-long tour any day--or night--of the week. And on the west side of Downtown, you'll discover the 18-block Las Vegas Arts District, where gallery after gallery showcases a wide range of styles and mediums, plus chic cafes and cocktail bars, vintage boutiques, theaters, ever-changing mural-lined alleys, and more. This thriving local scene, which sometimes bursts into block party mode during monthly First Friday, gives you a new reason to love this one-of-a-kind city.
