Las Vegas Strip - The Day Experience

With endless things to do in Las Vegas, you'll be spoilt for choice

Las Vegas isn't just about the night life and gambling. During the day there are so many fun things to do, that's suitable for all the family. So I have put together a 6 minute video to show you what I got up to during my 10 days in Las Vegas, it includes footage of me doing a Tandem Skydive, hiking the Red Rock Canyon and exploring the strip. (All links in this post direct you to full posts about that place).

Last year when I spent a week in Vegas for the first time, I visited every resort on the strip and paid to do things in each resort (see last year's video here). Such as visiting the top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris to get a birds eye view of the strip, and a desert view from The Stratosphere tower. During the day I would also recommend seeing the Siegfried & Roy Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage. Plus if you're a nature lover you can visit the Flamingo resort and enter the Flamingo Habitat for free.

The Venetian and Caesars Palace also have some live entertainment going on throughout the day, which is fun to watch. There is also the Botanical Gardens at Bellagio and The Shark Reef aquarium at The Mandalay Bay resort. Also during the day the Highroller (Ferris wheel) at The Linq, The Stratosphere Tower and Eiffel Tower are all cheaper to visit during the day compared to the night.

If you're looking for some daredevil rides then you may want to check out the roller coasters at the New York New York, Stratosphere, Circus Circus or the zipline at the Rio resort or the Slotzilla at the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Vegas.

Every resort on the strip is worth visiting, each resort is unique in its own way and you'll find yourself getting lost wandering around, admiring the amazingly themed resorts such as the Venetian and Caesars Palace. If walking around in the desert heat gets too much for you, then there are some amazing spas, restaurant's, shows and pool parties to keep you busy. There is also The Fashion Show mall and Crystals for designer shopping.

Plus there are so many amazing excursions you can do in Vegas during the day, such as a Tandem Skydive, The Red Rock Canyon, Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, Area 51, Hoover Dam & Route 66, Grand Canyon or a Vegas to Hollywood day trip.
