8 Amazing Things to Do in and Around Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

1. Walk the Strip

The first thing on my list of amazing things to do in and around Las Vegas, Nevada, USA is to walk down the strip.

I’ve been to Las Vegas twice. The first time was literally for one day, between a layover flight in 2010.. I think. I flew in, walked down the strip then got a shuttle bus back to the airport and flew out again.

2. The Bellagio

The Bellagio fountain show is amazing. I’ve seen it three times, but unfortunately it was the same show for all three times, which is also the one they play on Oceans 11. Still a good show though.

One of my trips to Las Vegas, one of the lads with us managed to lose two cameras, and another won $3000 in a drunken mess. He bought a Mac book air and shouted us lunch.

Cheap Accommodation in Las Vegas

If you need cheap accommodation in Las Vegas, USA, I stayed at the Luxor, which is the one that looks like a Pyramid.

We were four to a room and there were maybe 15-20 of us altogether. Each room was only $40/night between us ($10 each). Sufficient to say I don’t remember much from that 3 or 4 days except that the McDonald’s in the hotel has the best $1 Spicy McChicken’s.
