Las Vegas Attractions – What to see and do NMX – Blog World 2013

Vegas Attraction & Fun

I just wanted you to know what is current in Las Vegas. I have spent time going to see several things and found that they no longer existed or the schedule of shows had changed. I hope this helps you.

If you are going to eat at the buffet you might want to get the buffet of buffet pass. It is a 24 hour pass to 6 different buffets. Weekend prices are a little higher than Sunday after 11 am. – Thursday. Ask the cashier at the buffet for the pass.

Las Vegas is still chilly and you would probably be glad of a coat if you are walking the strip of watching outdoor shows.

For restaurant and show discounts go to the tix4tonight.com website or booth to see what is available.

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum – Open at 10 am for closing times call: 702-862-7810

Be sure to walk through the casino and look up. The hand painted frescoes on the ceiling make it seem that you really have stepped through a transport right in to Italy. It is truly magnificent.

Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino:

Forum Shops:
In front of the Cheesecake Factory see the fountain show and see the fish in the 50,000 gallon aquarium.

Bellagio Hotel and Casino:

Water Fountain Show – M-F 3pm – 7pm every 1/2 hour. 7-midnight every 15 mins. Sat. & Holidays – shows begin at noon with the same times and Sun. show begins at 11 am and run every 15 mins.

Conservatory – One of the most beautiful works of art with plants and flowers is the Conservatory at the Bellagio. It is Open 24/7.

Largest Chocolate Fountain – Don’t miss this while you are there behind the Conservatory is the Chocolate Fountain. Grab a treat from the Chocolatier and eat it while overlooking the pool area.

Glass Flowers – This is an amazing piece of art seemingly floating up by the ceiling in the Lobby. It is called Fiori di Como. It is 2,000 hand blown glass flowers. How did they ever get them installed without breaking them?? That is what my mind kept thinking.

Don’t forget Fremont Street downtown:

Viva Vision Canopy Light Show – The show is music and lights 12 million LED lights and a 555,000 watt sound system is an experience to be had. In between shows listen to one of the bands performing on stages spaced down the corridor or watch some of the street performs vying for tips.

MGM Hotel and Casino:

Lion Habitat has been closed. Don’t go there like we did and be disappointed. But do go to the Rainforest Cafe for some jungle feel while eating. We ate in a cave!

Coca Cola World and M&M World:

These two stores/attractions are steps apart. Both great places to see and buy things from their brands.

Walk of Stars:

I have not seen this but if you like the walk of stars in LA this may be up your alley. It is between Sahara and Russell streets on both sides of the street on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Treasure Island Hotel and Casino:

Sirens of TI – Show if front of property. Shows at 5:30 pm, 7 pm, 8:30 pm. and 10 pm.
