Las Vegas:

Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort city famed for its vibrant nightlife, centered around 24-hour casinos and other entertainment options. Its main street and focal point is the Strip, just over 4 miles long. This boulevard is home to themed hotels with elaborate displays such as fountains synchronized to music as well as replicas of an Egyptian pyramid, the Venetian Grand Canal, and the Eiffel Tower.

las3High Roller Observation Wheel & Eiffel Tower Experience This exhilarating High Roller Observation Wheel and Eiffel Tower allows you to see the city from new heights during both sunny days and sparkling nights.
Your daytime adventure begins as you step inside a glass capsule on the High Roller, the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. Your 40-passenger pod slowly rotates you toward the peak of its 550 feet (167 m), giving you 360-degree views of the sprawling Strip below. Pull out your camera to snap photos of iconic architecture like the gilded Mandalay Bay, the gleaming black pyramid of the Luxor, and the Eiffel Tower at Paris all aglow.

 

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum:
las4No Vegas vacation is complete without seeing someone famous, so why not go to the one place in town that features more than 100 cultural icons?
Play basketball with Shaq, audition in front of Simon Cowell, or spend time with Beyoncé. They may be made out of wax, but this is your opportunity to get up-close and personal with your favorite stars.
The list of sculptures is staggering, so here are a few of the people you can “meet” at Madame Tussauds: Brad and Angelina, Will Smith, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Gaga, Bono, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Gordon, and Hugh Hefner.
Best of all, you’re welcome to give the celebrities the paparazzi treatment as you snap as many pictures as you like.

 

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay:
las5Descend into an incredible underwater experience at Shark Reef Aquarium, where one of nature's most fearsome predators lurks. Not your typical aquarium, Shark Reef lets you get up close and personal with creatures of the deep in a habitat built to resemble a temple being reclaimed by the sea.
A cutting-edge facility in Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Shark Reef is dedicated to establishing and maintaining the highest standards of animal care, with 14 different exhibits featuring more than 2,000 different animals. An informative electronic audio-guide escorts you through the displays, highlighting the wonders of this marine life sanctuary in the heart of the desert.
Trek through the jungle, where you can find stealthy Amazon fish like giant arapaima and even an unusual golden crocodile. Feel the hard shells of the horseshoe crabs and brush gentle rays in the saltwater touch pools, and let yourself be enchanted by the balletic movements of moon jellyfish.

The High Roller Observation Wheel:
las6Go for a free-wheeling spin on The High Roller, a sky-bound adventure that revolves up and around for unparalleled views of the bright lights and landmarks of the Strip. Climb into a glass capsule on the world’s tallest observation wheel for a 360-degree look at sprawling downtown Vegas and beyond.
Leave the heat of the street behind as you step into one of the High Roller’s 28 40-passenger capsules. These glass-lined and temperature-controlled pods slowly rotate higher and higher, lifting you up to a breathtaking height of 550 feet (167 m)—higher than both the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer. Walk around the pod, take a seat on a bench, and check out the multimedia screens as you ride.
