As you can see, to talk about attractions in Vegas sounds a little bit odd, since almost everything there is an attraction, the whole city is an attraction. Nevertheless, there are some places of interest you can enjoy as well.
The Stratosphere Tower
One of the most favourite Las Vegas attractions is, of course, the tallest tower in Las Vegas - the Stratosphere. From there you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city lights. Especially before the nightfall, the view is just amazing. On the top of the tower you can find the highest thrill ride in the world – the Big Shot. Here you can also find the second highest thrill ride – Insanity and the third highest thrill ride in the world – the X-Scream. Another attraction is the restaurant on the top which within one hour completes full 360° rotation - it is called “The Top of the World”. The Stratosphere Hotel and Casino offers more than 2,400 guest rooms.
Las Vegas Natural History Museum
In Las Vegas Natural History Museum the history comes alive. Here you can find almost everything, even a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Although here you have the opportunity to watch the sharks’ behaviour in a large aquarium, probably the most visited attraction is the museum’s section of insects. The Museum was opened in 1991 with the help of local individuals and businesses exhibiting life forms from prehistoric to the present times. Las Vegas Natural History Museum is a non profit institution which main goal is to educate the community in world’s past and present ecosystems and wildlife. Here you can enjoy the Treasures of Egypt exhibit the Engelstad Family Prehistoric Life Gallery, the International Wildlife Gallery, Las Vegas Founders’ African Galleries, the Wild Nevada Gallery, the Marine Life Gallery, the Geology Gallery etc.
Sunset park is one of the largest parks in Las Vegas and one of the most favourite places for picnics and festivals. Here you can find several tennis courts, baseball and basketball courts as well as picnic and barbecue areas. Very popular, especially among the children, is the pond where you can catch a fish by yourself (but no more than 3).
Clark County Heritage Museum
Clark County Heritage Museum is also one of Las Vegas attractions. Here visitors have the opportunity to trace Nevada’s history and inhabitants starting with the Indian tribes of Mohave, Anasazi, Paiute and others, to the explorers and trappers of the early 19th century, their farms, ranches, mining towns, trains, the history of gaming in the city. The Heritage street, the Boulder city train depot and the Ghost town are really worth seeing.
