Things people usually skip in Vegas

Heading to Vegas and want to do something different? Why not check out the following places that people usually skip. Who knows, you might find a new haunt.

Gold Strike Hot Springs Trail Head

Like the Gold Strike Hot Springs, Las Vegas has some secrets that you should keep to yourself. The Springs is only 40 minutes from the city and offers visitors an unforgettable experience like a 4 mile (6.5 km) hike that takes around 3 hours to complete but is not recommended for young children or animals.

Dig This Las Vegas
Dig This in Sin City Beyond being a "adult's playground," Las Vegas offers much more. Teenagers and adults can operate heavy-duty construction equipment without the risks associated with it on this incredibly broad dirt lot. They can use the tools alone or in groups to simulate various activities, such as stacking tyres, digging holes, and wrecking vehicles.

The Basement: An Escape Room Experience

Fans of horror movies and adrenaline seekers should not miss The Basement. This was first done in Los Angeles, and it paved the way for subsequent escape-room tourist attractions to emerge in the US. The serial killer Edward Tandy, who enjoys tasting human flesh, gives guests 45 minutes to escape through the room of their choice—the basement or the study. There are tickets available for people who prefer to travel alone, but a group would have more fun.

The Cosmopolitan Pool

Although there are other fantastic pools on the Strip, the Cosmopolitan pool is something truly unique. It remains open throughout the year to accommodate hotel guests and host unique seasonal activities and special events. There are "Dive-In Movies" series that run in the summer and show a variety of modern and vintage movies. Then in the winter, the hotel hosts a winter wonderland with an ice rink, Christmas lights, rentable fire pits, and s'mores to extend the celebrations.

M&M World

The M&M World, which is situated close to the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip, will undoubtedly appeal to those who enjoy chocolate and are still young at heart. The window's vibrant colours and the aroma of chocolate will draw the attention of everyone who goes by, and the four stories of confectionery displays, movie posters, and souvenirs will astound guests when they enter. The best thing to do is to leave with some customized M&Ms.

The Secret Garden

In Vegas' history, The Secret Garden and Siegfried & Roy's Dolphin Habitat have a particular place. Millions of visitors have visited the refuge throughout its 30 plus-year history, which is housed inside The Mirage on the Strip, but a lot of people don't realize that you can swim with the dolphins, or paint, draw, and practice yoga with the lions, panthers, and white tigers.
