Las Vegas Strip - The Night Experience

Experiencing the Las Vegas strip at night - and what you should do in Vegas before you leave

For me, a night in Vegas starts by watching the amazing Fountains of Bellagio, no matter how many times I have watched the show it never gets boring, the music, atmosphere and dancing fountains are just incredible to watch. Another free show I recommend seeing on the strip is the Volcano eruption at The Mirage resort, it has fireballs and explosions, but just a warning don't get too close it gets pretty toasty on the front row.

The views of the strip are stunning from the Paris Hotel Eiffel Tower at night, you can get an aerial view of the fountains of Bellagio and see the bright neon lights of Vegas from above. To get more of a desert view visit The Stratosphere tower, or even take a ride of the high roller Ferris wheel at The Linq hotel. There's a walkway to the high roller that has lots of cool bars and restaurant's that are worth checking out too, I remember seeing an Irish bar so that's got to be worth a visit.

I would also recommend visiting Downtown Vegas, for the Fremont Street Experience as they have live music playing on stage and the atmosphere is fantastic with the LED light show displayed on the huge canopy above that also has people doing a zipwire down.

On both of my Vegas trips every moment was a great experience. Vegas will always be my happy place that I will always want to come back to. Its where I ticked off a bunch of bucket list stuff. So I totally recommend anyone to go and experience it for yourself, because a bunch of photos and videos really do not show how fantastic the place is. Yes it may be home to gambling and ladies walking around in bikinis, but its also a great place for families, couples and adventure seekers who are looking to hike the Grand Canyon or Red Rock Canyon, see nature, do a skydive, visit area 51, check out the fascinating local history or even take a trip to Hollywood. Vegas has endless possibilities, there's something for everyone and fun is guaranteed.

This is the final post from my recent trip to Las Vegas, there's plenty of other Vegas posts from last year when I visited that you may also enjoy reading too, they can be found here. I've also put together a 7 minute video showing you everything I got up to in Vegas, you can find that below. But if that wasn't enough you can find last years video of my time in Vegas here. Plus you can check out my Instagram @sian.victoria.travels to see a bunch of Vegas photos that wasn't featured on the blog.
