Las Vegas, Nevada is known by its nickname “sin city” and is most commonly associated with its large casinos and “I ran away and got married” wedding chapels. However, there’s a lot more to this famous city that most people aren’t familiar with. From extravagant stage productions to hands-on educational attractions, there really is something new around every corner.

The Las Vegas strip features numerous attractions and attracts almost forty million people every year. One of Vegas’s most known attractions that foster tourists is Cirque du Soleil. Their current show “O” creates a summary of all the different circus styles preformed around the world. Cirque du Soleil features live music throughout the show, several prop changes and a unique storyline that captures the hearts of its nightly audiences. According to the Cirque du Soleil website, “O” is rated four out of five stars and is a must see for anyone traveling to the Las Vegas area.

For thrill seekers, Las Vegas is the ultimate travel destination. The exhilarating rides found both outside and inside of Vegas theme parks are perfect for any tourist wanting an adventure. The biggest thrill is found at the top of the 1,149 feet Vegas Stratosphere. The Stratosphere Tower is the highest free rising observation tower in America (Richard and Ressner). Along with the casino, restaurant and observation deck within the tower is a rollercoaster and a reverse bungee jump. “Insanity” takes riders 64 feet over the edge of the tower, giving them a frightening but breathtaking view of historic Las Vegas. The Stratospheres new ride is titled “SkyJump”. This ultimate bungee jump experience lets riders jump from the top of the tower to the bottom after being trained and suited.
