Fun Las Vegas Attractions

Sure, Sin City has lots to offer, but these attractions are truly worth your while

En español | What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Just ask Prince Harry. He could have picked some good clean fun in the Entertainment Capital of the World without becoming tabloid fodder and angering the queen. Here are a few ways, from expensive to free, that are fun-filled and will keep you out of trouble!

Helicopter over the Grand Canyon
You’re flush from your win at the casino and price is no object. So you can spend $300 or more taking a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon to get a taste of really breathtaking views. The tour guide throws in a glass of champagne at the end, and you have amazing memories of your sky-high tour.

The Canyon Rocks and the Dam Thunders
Take a day bus trip to the Grand Canyon
, including a walk along breathtaking vistas, and a stop at Hoover Dam — a spectacular man-made achievement. Cost is about $134.

The Mob Museum — How mobsters put their fingerprints all over Vegas
Take a journey into the past at the Mob Museum
to see the footprints of Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, and mob busters such as Eliot Ness who brought them to justice.

Admission: Adults $18, seniors $14

A breathtaking circus — Cirque du Soleil
There are plenty of shows in Las Vegas, from musicals to top-name singers. One option: Cirque du Soleil on the Strip, with seven different productions from which to choose. Tickets aren’t cheap, though — from $75 to $185 per person.

Among the choices: “Zumanity” — the sensual side of Cirque du Soleil — for $85 a ticket, or “LOVE,” a psychedelic journey through the trends and politics of the ’60s that celebrates the musical legacy of the Beatles ($117).
