18 Photos that Prove Las Vegas is more than Gambling

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!

    I agree! There’s so much more to do in Vegas than gamble and drink – we loved Red Rock Canyon while there, and spent a lot of our days doing trips out with Vegas as our base. Loved exploring the desert!

      The best! Where did you like the best? I am always looking for new things to do on my next trip there.

    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!

      Completely agree. The last time or two I was there I don’t think I spent more than an hour in the casino and every time I visit I find more things to do!

        Same I spent 20 dollars gambling last time (my first trip). Recommendations for my upcoming trip anyone?!

    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™‚

      The 7 Magic Mountains is an art installation right outside of Las Vegas. It will be there for a little while for people to see πŸ™‚

    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. ^^

    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

    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.

    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.

    Yes! Love this post! There is way more to Vegas than clubs and slot machines, haha! I can’t wait to go back someday and see the Grand Canyon!! πŸ™‚

    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!

      I have never been there!! I need to put it on my list for my next visit. Thanks so much for reading and liking my donut photo <3

    Definitely agreed! So much more to do! I regret not visiting Death Valley, but will definitely check it out next time.
