1. Pool Parties
Pack your sunscreen and take advantage of one of the last weekends of summer and join in on some Vegas pool party fun. One popular option is the Rock Star Pool Party Tour, which escorts you around town to the hottest clubs in style.
Reserve a spot on a tour and enjoy not having to worry about the logistics or reserve a cabana in advance at a pool of your choice for a VIP experience.
Most pools will also be hosting special Labor Day Weekend events, so you can party poolside along popular DJs,celebrities, and more.
2. Hoover Dam Tour
The Hoover Dam is a must-see attraction when visiting the Las Vegas area. It’s a marvel of twentieth-century engineering as well as a national landmark.
You’ll get to soak up the amazing sights of the Hoover Dam from the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which will give you an amazing view from 900 feet above the Colorado River.
Detailed tours of the dam and its workings are fascinating glimpses behind-the scenes. You can also opt to upgrade on site for additional tours for a small fee.
3. Drinks @ Señor Frogs
Get ready for a night out at the famous Señor Frogs. Offering tasty Mexican-inspired cuisine alongside delicious, inventive drinks, this popular restaurant is one of our favorites.
Don’t forget about their one-hour open bar, which can both be a lot of fun and save you some money. Have some fun and get a little loco while you’re at it.
4. Entertainment at The LINQ
Head to The LINQ, an open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment destination and see what they’ve got going on for the weekend.
Get above it all on the High Roller Observation Wheel for some great views of the scene on the Strip below and fun photo opportunities.
The ride lasts about 30 minutes, all the while you’ll be surrounded by beautiful views of downtown Las Vegas, from 550 feet above the ground.
Another one our favorite options at this entertainment mecca is is the Fly LINQ Zipline. If you opt for a night flight (our recommendation), you’ll get exhilarating views of the illuminated city below you.
If you’d like the full scoop on what to do at the LINQ, check out our handy post on the subject.
5. Fremont Street
One of the hippest areas in Las Vegas is Fremont Street. With everything from trendy bars and restaurants to boutique shops and indie bookstores, they’ve got it all.
It’s also an up-and-coming neighborhood, so expect to see something new each time you visit. People especially love Downtown Container Park, a neat little shopping an dining district fabricated from reclaimed shipping containers.
Whether you want to explore on your own like a local or take an informative tour, Fremont Street awaits your company.

7. Dance it Out to an EDM Show
Lots of top DJs and artists will be celebrating Labor Day Weekend by working in Las Vegas (thank you DJs!). Among the top acts for Labor day 2019 are the one and only Cardi B, the inimitable Rick Ross, and the famous (infamous?) DJ Pauly D.
Check out the lineup put together by electronic.vegas to see if one of your favorites will be at a Vegas venue and snag some tickets.
Many events are ticketed by the day and the duration of the festival, so you can pick what you’d like to see and how long you’d like to party for. There are also still plenty of events whose special guests have yet to be revealed, so check back often to see who’s appearing.
8. The Wildlife Habitat at Flamingo Hotel
This is one of the more unique and most beloved attractions in all of Las Vegas.
The Flamingo Hotel honors their namesakes with a wildlife habitat featuring these stunning birds alongside turtles, fish, and other exotic birds.
A visit here is a great chance to connect with nature in the middle of an urban jungle. This is an especially great place to stop if you have children, it’s a great escape from the typical Las Vegas scene.
