10 Things To Do In Vegas Besides Gamble

Las Vegas may be renowned for its casinos and nightlife, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things to do in Vegas besides gamble.

I don’t drink much and don’t care too much about gambling, but Vegas is still fun! Las Vegas is an entertainment oasis for everyone. 

Things To Do In Vegas Besides Gamble

1. See A Cirque Du Soleil Show

I love going to Cirque Du Soleil shows, and Vegas has several that are permanent. Cirque Du Soleil is an amazing show of acrobatics and stunning visuals, each show with its own theme.

Shows available in Las Vegas include: 

  • O, located at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino, is water-themed.
  • KÀ: The glory of battle, the rush of victory. Located at MGM Grand. 
  • The Beatles LOVE is located at The Mirage.
  • Michael Jackson ONE is located at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino
  • Mystère is all about laughing along with life. Located at Treasure Island.

2. Eat All The Vegan Food

Believe it or not, there are countless vegan options in Las Vegas.

Not just options, either. Full vegan restaurants, vegan desserts, vegan buffets! Here is a great guide for eating vegan in Vegas.

3. See the Seven Magic Mountains

These colorful stacks of boulders are located just outside Vegas. The art installation by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone is free to visit. 

4. Visit the Neon Museum of Las Vegas

Want to see where all the neon lights go in their afterlife? Head to the Neon Museum for the hour-long guided tour through a neon graveyard. 

Additionally, the museum also hosts temporary exhibits.

5. Visit the Bodies: The Exhibition

Bodies: The Exhibition is famous for displaying real dissected human bodies, perfect for anyone who is really curious about how our bodies work. It may sound really disgusting and strange, but it’s done in a completely tasteful way. 

Using an innovative preservation process, the Exhibition showcases real full bodies and organs, providing a detailed, three-dimensional vision of the human form rarely seen outside an anatomy lab.

6. Be Adventurous at The Stratosphere

Ever wanted to go on a thrill ride at the top of a skyscraper? The Stratosphere has three of them. You can also base jump from the top.

Or, if you’d rather just take in the view, you can head to the observation deck. 

7. Watch the Bellagio Fountains

Every moving shot in Vegas likely shows the fountains in front of the Bellagio. But, there’s a good reason – they are pretty cool to see.

A water, music, and light show happens every 15 minutes. 

8. Ride The High Roller

Vegas is home to the world’s tallest observation wheel. Grab a seat on it yourself, and you can enjoy a 360-degree view of Las Vegas at 550 feet above the ground.

9. Visit Fremont Street

See what Vegas was like before by visiting Fremont Street. Known as the old Las Vegas, Fremont Street is perhaps even more eccentric. You can even zipline above it if you desire.

10. Check Out The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden

Every season, the 14,000-square-foot Botanical Garden is transformed into a new show. When I was there, it was a fairy wonderland. 

And according to their website, “The talented Conservatory team changes out the design and replants and repurposes as much of the living plant material as possible, further celebrating Mother Nature and our commitment to sustainability.”

This is just a small taste of everything there is to do in Vegas if you don’t gamble. So, if you’re heading there and don’t care about gambling, don’t worry! It would be very difficult to be bored in Vegas. 

Finding A Place To Stay In Las Vegas

To be honest, walking around and through all the different hotels is a fun thing to do and I’d say definitely counts as one of the things to do in Vegas.

If you’ve never been to Vegas, you definitely need to do this. Each hotel has its own shops, restaurants, shows, decor, special exhibits, and more.
