18-photos-1Along the way Las Vegas has become one of my favorite cities in the United States. In fact, I have been here more than any other city in a travel capacity. Las Vegas promises bright lights, late nights, pool parties, buffets, world class shows, and a non stop good time.

Here are 18 photos that prove Las Vegas is more than just a place to gamble. From National Park visits within reach and the best pools all summer – welcome to your next vacation!

  1. I love Las Vegas! The food, pools, spas, shopping, and people watching are amazing! Last trip to Vegas we barely gambled, there is just too much to do!

  2. Stunning shots. What are those colorful rocks – magic mountains (As per tag)? They look so pretty. Would love to head to LA and see these places with a night of gambling on the charts as an add-on (not primary reason to go) πŸ™‚

  3. I read another post recently on the other things to do in Vegas that aren’t casino related and it got me super excited. These are some more great things to do out there which I had never considered before. Vegas, as a gambling mecca really never appealed to me before, but with so much other things to do and see, it’s definitely on my list now. ^^

  4. What a fun photo essay. Seven magic mountains looks like a cool, quirky spot. My parents are taking my husband and I a trip in August and I nixed Vegas for Wisconsin, but I think I may put it back in the running for them to choose from! Thanks for sharing! Xx

  5. Vegas is definitely more than gambling! We went for a few days and did absolutely no gambling ourselves – went to the museums, ate well, did the fun rides, took in a show, hung out by the pool. There’s so much to do in Sin City that isn’t sinful at all.

  6. Surely so as your photographs depict. I have not been to Las Vegas ever but I have been to Macau , which is known as the Las Vegas of the east and I can say that we stayed there for four days and there was so much to see and do that we never entered a casino.

  7. Vegas is so much more! My husband and I visit 3-4 times a year and although we like to do a little gambling, a majority of our trip is spent seeking out other things to do. One of our favorite stops is The Pinball Hall of Fame! It’s a bit of a dive, but so much history and fun. I love your donut delivery picture!
