With Las Vegas casinos offering so many over-the-top gambling, dining, and entertainment options now, you can take a trip there and never feel a need to go outside. But that would be a really bad idea, considering how many amazing things there are to do in Sin City, so don’t miss out on these 50 things you totally have to do while you’ve still got the chance. And yes, getting your photo taken by the Las Vegas sign is one of them.

Seriously, go take your photo by that sign

It’s a rite of passage.


Hit a pool party

Whether it’s Rehab at the Hard Rock (the shitshowiest of shitshows) or the slightly more civilized Encore Beach Club, the pool club is a quintessential Vegas experience.

Get hitched

Vegas is known for its quickie weddings, so why not get married on the fly at Denny’s, or with Elvis as your minister?


Ride the world’s tallest observation wheel

The High Roller is 550ft tall and even more fun if you splurge for the Happy Half Hour that supplies you with a personal bartender in your cabin. Just make sure you go to the bathroom beforehand, because there’s no place to go during the 30-minute trip.


Hit a Vegas buffet the right way


Avoid the old-school cheap buffets and go for the ones that are worth every bite. The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, The Buffet at Wynn, and Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan specialize in small servings with the same quality you’d find at high-end restaurants, with the latter being the cream of the crop. Considering the exceptionally high quality of everything it serves (sushi, tapas, caviar), it’s on the more affordable end of the buffet spectrum. You can also add select bottomless beverages for $15!
