There are few things as beautiful as the landscape outside of urban Las Vegas. The Grand Canyon is one of the most striking natural wonders in the entire country, and it’s not to be missed if you have the time for a little detour out of the city.

You’ll also get a nice aerial view of Fremont Street, which you can also explore on foot (see below).

It’s hard to beat an aerial view of Las Vegas. It’s simply a city that has to be seen from above, boasting too much glitz and glam to possibly be appreciated from street level without being overwhelmed.

Get a full sense of the scope of the marvelous Strip from one of their two most popular observation decks – the High Roller Observation Wheel at LINQ or the Stratosphere Observation Deck. They both offer unique strengths, so you could try them both, too!

Embark on a Walking Tour

One fun option is to take a walking tour of the popular Fremont Street neighborhood, which winds you through the cultural hotspots of downtown Las Vegas.
