Las Vegas is a wild world, baby—the lights, the sounds, the people—there’s so much to see and do here that it would take you months to discover it all.
If you’re planning a holiday to Las Vegas, get off the strip and explore! There’s so much more to Sin City than the casinos and chain-restaurants that you’ll find on the strip.
Here are our favorite picks for things to see and do outside of the famous Vegas strip.
The Neon Museum
Come see the Vegas of yesteryear in this decidedly cool neon boneyard. Care has been taken to preserve the neon signs of old Vegas, including those of the Golden Nugget, Caesar’s Palace and more. Visit via a guided tour, which is totally worth it—it’s awesome! You can also book a photo shoot here to have some very cool souvenirs to give out to friends and family.
Frankie’s Tiki Room
No trip to Sin City is complete without checking out Frankie’s, Las Vegas’ most famous tiki bar. It’s just a few blocks off the main strip, but you’ll feel like you’re in another world. The bar was designed by one of the premier tiki designers in the world, in addition to countless famous artists who carved it to perfection. Don’t miss it.
Zipline Down The Old Strip
If you think Vegas can’t get you any higher, you’re wrong. Slotzilla at Fremont Street will put you 110 feet above the old strip for a view of Vegas you’ve never seen before. It’s only $20 for the lower zip line, $40 for the upper. Try it out!
Double Down Saloon
It’s one of the nation’s most famous dive bars and it calls this city its home. The Double Down Saloon is the kind of joint where anything can be solved with a shot of their famous “ass juice” (don’t ask us why they call it that!). There’s pool tables and always an interesting crowd.
There are tons of things to do off the Vegas strip. What are your favorites?
