In between all the networking and course instruction, you’ll need to find some time to relax and enjoy Las Vegas a little! The city is much more than just casinos and great food, so we want to share some must-see Las Vegas attractions you should be sure to visit while you’re in town.
1. You won’t get a more breathtaking view of the city than on the High Roller Ferris Wheel. The tallest observation wheel in the world, the High Roller is a great place to take your sweetheart for an unforgettable view and a romantic ride.
2. The Bellagio Fountains are some of the most eye-catching and extravagant fountains you’ll ever see. Every half hour from 3-8PM and then every 15 minutes after until midnight, the fountains shoot water up to 460 feet in the air from over 1,200 separate streams, and the streams of water are perfectly choreographed to classic show tunes. You have to stop and admire it at least once while you’re in town! They are just across the street from the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, our conference location.
3. Head over to the Atomic Testing Museum for a one-of-a-kind museum experience. The exhibits highlight Nevada’s history as America’s nuclear guinea pig. Learn more about the culture surrounding atomic testing and nuclear research of decades past, as well as the always thought-provoking discussion on extraterrestrials! The museum features over 12,000 unique artifacts for you and friends or family to explore. Enjoy group tours or audio tours to move at your own pace.
4. Keeping in the museum vein, the Mob Museum is a must-see. Las Vegas’ early days were heavily influenced by mob activity, making it a checkered but truly unique and fascinating chapter of the city’s history. Learn more about famous mobsters who had a hand in goings-on around the city, explore exhibits that share the history of mob business and corruption, and learn more about the federal agents who brought down the biggest names in the mafia. Group and private events are available.
5. One more museum! The Neon Museum (pictured at top) is an amazing way to experience a piece of history that is truly unique to Las Vegas. An outdoor walkthrough, the museum boasts dozens and dozens of vintage neon signage from old Las Vegas hotels and casinos. Learn more about how Las Vegas became Las Vegas with this fun and vibrant collection of relics.
