    Very great history. We spent 4 hours here and probably missed a lot of stuff. Intending on visiting again to see what we missed

    Neon Boneyard

    5
    9 reviews

    Group tours by prior arrangement only, but it is very worthwhile. Acres and acres of Las Vegas' history baking in the desert sun, hoping for resurrection somewhere. Several reclamation projects are now installed in the Fremont Street Experience.

    King Tut's Tomb & Museum

    3.5
    12 reviews

    Waah, what's the point of an ancient Egyptian-themed casino hotel without a little homage to ancient Egypt? The property has scads of square footage. As if any Vegas visitors are going to actually visit the real Tomb in the Valley of the Kings. We went through the exhibit once when we got free tix with a Luxor package deal, and ...

    Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

    4.5
    16 reviews

    Located within the Luxor Hotel, Titanic the artifact exhibit is a rather moving exhibit of how senseless this accident was. I still can't believe this was real and that it actually happened. This tragic event almost reads like a hollywood movie script. The unsinkable sinks on her maiden voyage. How tragically ironic. For fans of the Titanic history, this was ...

    Atomic Testing Museum

    4.5
    10 reviews

    Off the Strip, near the UNLV campus, this oddball museum covers the history of atomic weapons testing and nuclear waste storage in the Nevada desert. Experience the ground virtually shaking in the Ground Zero theater as you watch documentary film footage from 1950s A-bomb tests, when casinos held mushroom-cloud viewing parties on their rooftops. Then take a look at the ...

    The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

    4.5
    121 reviews

    Interestingly, although Betty Willis' fabled sign itself remains the same, its immediate surroundings morph as rapidly as the town itself. I did an extensive photo shoot in 2004, when you still had to make a mad dash from the Visitor Center's parking lot across the Strip to the median where the sign is located. Later, they added a royal card ...

    Springs Preserve

    4.5
    5 reviews

    When you're tired of the ding-ding-ding of the slot machines, drive yourself northwest of the Strip and downtown to this combination history museum, natural history museum, environmental science center and nature preserve. It's built atop the site of the original springs (since dried up) that give Las Vegas ("The Meadows") its Spanish name.

    Graceland Wedding Chapel

    3.5
    2 reviews

    The wedding birthplace of stars like Elvis and Jon Bon Jovi - it's a great little pilgrimage for rock and roll fans who want that cheesy photo without the nuptials. Trek down here from the strip (or take a cab if you aren't up for the nearly 2-mile walk) and make sure you go inside to ask for a wedding ...

    Fountains at Bellagio

    4.5
    458 reviews

    It is FREE and amazing! The Fountains at the Bellagio can be enjoyed both from within the hotel and from outside on the strip. We enjoy just marveling at it each time we are in the area.

    Crystals

    3.5
    25 reviews

    Crystals is a beautifully designed high end shopping arcade in the "new" city center of Las Vegas. There are numerous stores and restaurants but it is the arts that are dotted throughout the arcade, the architecture and design that really makes this shopping center stand out. (and i am refraining from using the term "mall" to describe it because Crystals ...

    Little Church Of The West

    4.5
    3 reviews

    Every wedding chapel in Las Vegas (well, practically all of them) look cheesy when you actually walk into them. But this spot, south of the Strip, preserves some real Western movie-set appeal. Plenty of famous Hollywood stars have even tied the knot here. Trivia factoid: Elvis and Ann-Margret got married here at the end of the movie "Viva Las Vegas".

    Bonnie Springs Ranch Old Nevada

    4.5
    4 reviews

    This strange little old-timey town is worth a stop-through - or an overnight stay - if you're anywhere near Las Vegas. Built in 1843 as a stopover for wagon trains (early rest stop?), it was reimagined in 1952 as a tourist attraction. It now boasts a petting zoo, riding stables (with horseback tours of the brush-covered desert, including some gorgeous ...

    Las Vegas Mob Experience

    4.5
    2 reviews

    Really, I'd like to give this place 3.5 stars. But I'll round up to 4 stars just because what used to be called the Mob Experience inside the Tropicana on the Strip has improved so much over the past year. It's not a serious historical study like downtown Las Vegas' new Mob Museum, but more of a live-actor and virtual ...
