Fun Adventures of the Las Vegas Strip

Written by Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

The adventures that take place on the Las Vegas Strip can be enough to make even the naughtiest of naughty people, blush. The adventures you hear will send you running to the nearest priest for forgiveness, for merely having enjoyed listening to said stories…even if you’re not Catholic…or religious, for that matter! Maybe that’s why you’re in Las Vegas? You’re here to get down and dirty; it's Vegas... anything goes?!

It’s also possible that you’re just looking for some good, clean, fun adventures to commemorate your trip. The Strip is where it’s at, folks. There’s a whole lot to do and then some! I’ve blogged about the Bellagio Fountains, Treasure Island, and NY New York’s roller coaster…I’ve blogged about rides on the Stratosphere and the good times to be had at Circus Circus. By all means, hit up my other blogs at to read all about them! But, for now, stay right here to get a peek at three more Las Vegas Strip Attractions!

Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

1.6 million gallons is a whole lotta water! That’s just how much Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef holds in order to maintain over 2,000 animal species. Jellyfish, rays, turtles, crocs (the reptiles, not the shoes…in case there was some confusion), and over 100 sharks can be seen at this public aquarium. There’s even a touch pool for those that want to get a little “closer” to the action. If the touch pool STILL isn’t close enough, you can make the most of this Las Vegas Strip Attraction, as a guest of Mandalay Bay (and for a mere $650), and DIVE with the sharks (as long as you’re scuba certified)!

Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

Speaking of sea creatures, The Mirage has some gorgeous dolphins at their habitat! Walk through for less than $20 a person, or be a “trainer for a day” (costs change seasonally), getting wet with the dolphins and learning how to talk to them (kinda like a dolphin whisperer)! Enjoy their 20,000 gallon salt water tank with fish from around the world (20,000 seems so miniscule compared to Shark Reef at Mandalay). When you’re all “water animinaled” out, you can walk the loop and check out the lions, tigers, and other wild cats. If you’re really quiet, you might be able to hear a “kitty” purring at this Las Vegas Strip Attraction 

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
Are you feeling a bit waterlogged from the last two Las Vegas Strip Attractions? I sure am! In front of the Venetian, you can head in to Madame Tussauds and “get acquainted” with some of your favorite celebrities. Hugh Heffner and some playmates? Elvis? The Blue Men Group? Whether your poison be Hollywood stars or sports figures or anyone in between, you will be blown away at the detail and realistic nature of these wax figures. As for me, one visit was enough (I went there JUST FOR YOU, MY READERS). From now on I’ll wait outside; I’m just as terrified of these wax figures as I am of plastic baby dolls (I must have been attacked as a child).
