5 Things You Can't Miss When You Come to Vegas

Las Vegas is an exciting place! It's a city that never sleeps, probably because there's so much to see and do. If you're planning a Vegas vacation, there are tons of attractions and activities you don't want to miss, especially if you're a first time visitor. Here are five of them to get you started:

1. Magic Shows - If you're into magic, magic awaits you in Las Vegas. David Copperfield at the MGM Grand, Penn & Teller at the Rio and Criss Angel at the Luxor are all waiting to amaze you with their illusions, laughs and trickery.

Mob Museum Downtown Las Vegas
2. The Mob Museum - Organized crime is a big part of Vegas history. Located downtown, the Mob Museum is packed with interesting information and exhibits to chronicle the events that occurred from the beginning. Exhibits include "A Tough Little Town," "Hollywood and the Mob" and "Saint Valentine's Day Massacre Wall".
It's interesting to note this museum is housed in a building that was once a courthouse. This is the same courthouse which held the famous (mob-related) Kefauver Committee hearings. The actual courtroom has been restored to an exact replica of what it looked like at the time of the trial.

3. NASCAR Driving - Have you always wanted to be just like Richard Petty? You can, when you book the Richard Petty Rookie Experience. Depending on your driving ability, you can anticipate driving speeds of up to 134 MPH. Buckle up for eight thrilling laps around the Las Vegas Speedway, in a 600-horsepower NASCAR-style stock car. At the end of it all, you'll receive a "graduation packet", complete with a time sheet to show your envious friends.

4. Helicopter Tours - No trip to this destination is complete without an exciting helicopter tour over the city. Choose an itinerary that flies over the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and more. And, there's no better view of the Strip, especially at sunset!

5. Pawn Stars - If you're a Pawn Star's fan, why not visit the shop in person? You  might even get lucky enough to meet Chumlee or Rick. Visitors are encouraged to bring an item to be appraised. There's usually a line at the door to get in so it's best to arrive early. Happy shopping!

These options are just the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands of things to see and do in Las Vegas. Whether you're traveling alone or as part of a group, you'll never forget the fun and excitement the city offers.
