Take in a Show
See the Strip From AboveThe Las Vegas Strip is a truly amazing sight – it’s all glitz and glam and bright lights. What better way to get a glimpse of these magnificent views than from an aerial vantage point like the Stratosphere Observation Deck? Or, if you prefer your sightseeing to be a little more exciting, check out the High Roller Observation Wheel at the LINQ, which is itself a fabulous shopping and dining complex that should be must-visit on your spring break. Both options provide excellent photo opportunities, so you’re sure to get that perfect skyline photo. The kids will love being up at such great heights, too! Getting In: Admission to the Stratosphere Observation Deck and High Roller Observation Wheel are both included with the Go Las Vegas pass.
Explore the CityOf course, there’s much more to the city than just the Strip. Explore more of this fantastic town with a comprehensive bus tour of Las Vegas. There are a few different routes to choose from, so review your options and then pick what you want to see. Popular stops along these bus tours include Treasure Island, several hotels/casinos like Wyndham, Circus Circus, the Tropicana, and Excalibur, the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop (of Pawn Stars fame), and more. If you want to explore on your own but want to avoid the steep cost of parking fees (which can definitely add up), try out the Monorail. It only runs the length of the Strip, but it’s speedy and incredibly handy. Getting In: Hop-On Hop-Off Big Bus Las Vegas tours and a 24-hour Monorail pass are both included with the Go Las Vegas pass.

Play Around with Pop CultureIf you really prefer contemporary pop culture to anything historic, then why not stop by Madame Tussauds Las Vegas for a long look at some astonishingly lifelike wax sculptures? It’s a great chance to “meet” your favorite celebrities, and to pose for those funny pictures you’ll love later. Another popular kid-friendly option is the exciting and innovative Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N, which offers an in-depth, nuanced look at the world of this fascinating comic book world that has inspired many movies. Both attractions are ideal choices for families with younger kids, because there's a lot to keep them interested and occupied in a way that sometimes more formal art-type museums can't accomplish. Getting In: Admission to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is included with the Go Las Vegas pass.
Explore Outside the CityNo one said you had to stay in Vegas proper during your spring break – sometimes getting out of the city can be the best part! Especially with such amazing nearby attractions like the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam, it’s easy enough to be enticed by the natural world outside of the Strip and want to venture out. So take a bus tour along the Grand Canyon for some amazing views and even more phenomenal pictures. And/or, check out the marvel of modern engineering that is the impressive Hoover Dam. Many tours will even pick up at hotels, taking all the pressure off in terms of transit. Getting In: Hoover Dam Tour tickets are included with the Go Las Vegas pass. Grand Canyon Tour tickets are included as a bonus option with the 3-, 4-, and 5-Day Go Las Vegas pass.
Explore Local ShoppingOne of the best parts of Vegas the incredible variety and quality of available popular Las Vegas shopping destinations, whether you're looking for some high end couture or some fun souvenirs. From the aforementioned LINQ to the local favorite Container Park, there are some awesome choices when it comes to souvenir shopping. This is even a good place to pick out new clothes, jewelry, shoes, movies, music, dishes – you name it, you can buy it in Vegas. We recommend shopping early in the day so you can return to your hotel and drop off the stuff before heading out for a great dinner or show in the evening.
