Las Vegas is a place that people of all ages and of all backgrounds from all over the world flock to year in, year out. Truly, it is a mecca for people not only wanting to have fun but to immerse themselves in one of modern day’s most sought after and popular destinations. And, when in Vegas, there are few things that everyone has to do. This contributed post offers tips to enjoy Las Vegas — especially when it’s your first visit.
Sin City. City of Lights. Entertainment Capital of the World. Las Vegas is known by many nicknames, but perhaps the most attributed caption is “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…” Its neon lights, entertainment headliners, and of course, legal gambling, Vegas is the place to be. But where to start? When in Vegas, here are the top 4 tips to enjoy Las Vegas.
Gamble…Even if it’s Only with a Dollar or Two
Yes, gambling is not for everybody. Whether it’s because they don’t agree with it, or whether it’s because they’re quite frankly not all that good at it, some people just don’t take to gambling like others do. But, when you’re in Las Vegas, it would be a shame not to try your luck and drop a coin (or two) into the slots.
Visit the Cool Stores
There’s more to Las Vegas than casinos, bars and pool parties, you know. Choose from a host of cool stores and shops dotted up and down the infamous Strip.
For instance, there is a huge shop dedicated only to selling Coca-Cola merchandise. A visit here will make you realize just how much more there is to this global super brand than just drinks! And, go ahead and indulge your sweet tooth next door at a store dedicated only to selling M&Ms merch.
Visit a Chapel…and Maybe Even Get Married!

Okay, getting married may be a bit of a push, especially if getting married to somebody you do not know and only met that very night.
But, paying a visiting to any of Las Vegas’s famous wedding chapels, such as the Little Church of the West, is something that you should do during a visit to Sin City. Just so you can say you did it!
And what better excuse is there in life to do something than doing it just so you can say that you did it?
Ride the Roller Coaster at New York-New York
Seriously…this is something you want to add to “I’ve-done-this” list! Ride The Roller Coaster at the New York-New York hotel in Vegas. Yes, you don’t have to travel to the actual New York to sample the NY experience. You can do so during a visit to Las Vegas, too!
Formerly known as the Manhattan Express, it is now sometimes known as the Big Apple Coaster. By riding The Roller Coaster, travel through the highly Disneyfied version of Manhattan. Found on the rooftop of the New York-New York Hotel, enjoy the thrill along the way as you do so. For those roller coaster fans, this coaster may not be the craziest ride in the world. But it still could get your adrenaline pumping just from its rooftop view of the Vegas!
Las Vegas truly is one of those places that should be on everybody’s holiday bucket list and not just those that have a particular passion for traveling. Whether visiting for a few days or a week’s full of fun, you’ll never be bored in Vegas!
