The Attractions of Las Vegas

By Chris Linch

Paris, New York, Italy, all on the same street. Can you imagine? It is a good idea to make a list of the spots you want to visit while you are in "Sin City" before you make the trip. Here are a few ideas for the top "must see" locations.

Accentuated by a lovely musical water fountain is Las Vegas' very own Bellagio. Inside is a recreation of Venice complete with gondola rides, exclusive art boutiques, and a shopping center. You can also enjoy "O" by Cirque du Soleil, gamble in the fabulous casino, of dine in five star restaurants like Circo and Jasmine. The Bellagio is easily on of the greatest Las Vegas attractions.

At the Mirage, between 8pm and midnight, their volcano erupts, a splendid display of fire and water. Though the Mirage is known around the world for their outdoor activities, come inside and there is much more to be seen. At the front desk you will find a 20,000-gallon saltwater tank. You will also experience the 90-foot high atrium ceiling, waterfalls, and rainforest garden. You can also find Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and a Dolphin Habitat inside the resort.

Freemont Street, home of the Freemont Street Experience, is a must see free attraction. Freemont street is home to street entertainers and performers, a nightly light show on the canopy, and it is all covered by a 90-foot high canopy. This street is open to pedestrians only and is one of the most popular Vegas attractions.

Amazing magicians, world-class singers, and impossible acrobatics. If you can imagine it, you can find it in Vegas. Though, it is difficult to list the most popular attractions, because the shows do change from time to time.

Vegas is home to many shows, like Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian, where the stage was built just for that show. Critics claim it is the best performance of Phantom. There are many Cirque du Soliel shows, even an "adults-only" show. Famous singers like Elton John, Bette Midler, and Cher are regulars on stages in Vegas, and the Blue Man Group is also a very popular attraction. - 30230
