How to Spend 3 Days in Las Vegas

How to Spend 3 Days in Las Vegas

Packing all the high-rolling fun of Las Vegas into three days doesn’t have to be a gamble—Sin City offers nonstop excitement morning, noon, and night. Here are our favorite ways to enjoy the sights, adventures, and glamour of Vegas in three days, while still leaving time to visit the nearby Grand Canyon.

 

Day 1: See the Sights

Get an overview of the city on a hop-on hop-off tour along the Strip, where you can visit attractions such as the observation deck at Stratosphere Tower and the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. Both of these landmarks offer a look at Vegas from above—a great way to start your exploration. Or perhaps check out the Mob Museum, one of the most interesting things to do in Vegas, providing a little history in a city that’s always evolving. When evening rolls around, hop on the High Roller, the observation wheel at the LINQ Hotel and Casino. As you take a spin, you can enjoy happy-hour drinks from the onboard bar. Then stroll over to the Bellagio Fountains to watch the musical water show before heading inside the hotel for a performance of O, a favorite among Vegas’ many Cirque du Soleil shows.

 

Day 2: Fly High

While there’s plenty happening on the ground in Las Vegas, a lot of the action takes place in the air. Depending on your tolerance for thrills, begin your day with a sunrise hot-air balloon ride or a plane ride above Red Rock Canyon for a tandem skydiving experience. Then keep the adventure going at the Stratosphere Tower with the Unlimited Ride Pass, which provides access to three extreme rides: X-Scream, Insanity, and the Big Shot. Or opt for some serious bragging rights by booking a fighter pilot experience that gives you the opportunity to fly across the desert with a real fighter pilot. When darkness falls, admire the lights of the city on a nighttime helicopter tour before touring the Strip like a VIP in your own limo with a personal photographer to document your exploits.

 

Day 3: Discover a Natural Wonder

East of Las Vegas you’ll find Grand Canyon National Park, one of the biggest and most significant natural attractions in the United States. It’s easily accessible on a Grand Canyon day trip from the city by helicopter, airplane, or coach bus. Some combo options include a helicopter ride to the canyon’s west rim, a boat ride on the Colorado River, and the chance to walk out on the glass-bottom Grand Canyon Skywalk, located outside the park in the Hualapai Reservation. When you return to the city, spend your last night exploring the clubs and lounges of Sin City with an all-access nightclub pass.
