Take your courage in both hands and try the rides at the top of the Stratosphere Tower. The Big Shot has you shooting up the Tower's needle then plummeting down quicker than a stone; Insanity sees riders spinning round the top of the building; while Sky Jump Las Vegas is a vertical zip-line free fall from the 108th floor.
Put A Ring On It
Follow in the steps of Elvis and Angelina Jolie and get hitched Vegas style. There's chapels all over the city and you can either choose a theme (zombie wedding anyone?) or go a straighter route. If you're in a hurry, opt for the Little White Wedding Chapel with its Drive-Thru Tunnel of Vows.
All About Animals
There's wildlife aplenty in Vegas, making it a top spot for animal lovers. Siegfried and Roys' Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat provides a rare chance to spot black panthers, white tigers, white lions, and other big cats. Or if underwater action floats your boat, there's the Shark Reef aquarium at the Mandalay Bay.
The Strip Las Vegas is THE place for razzmatazz, so be sure to catch a show whilst you're here. If it's big-time Broadway you're after, then both Jersey Boys and Book of Mormon will be in town in 2014. Plus don't miss Cirque du Soleil, the Blue Man Group, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, David Copperfield, Gordie Brown...the list goes on.
So many shops, so little time. Shopping in Vegas ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous - everything from Christian Dior to kitsch Elvis memorabilia. The Roman-themed Forum arcade at Caesar's Palace is not to be missed - and if you want shopping on a vast scale, head to the Fashion Show mall, which even has its own catwalk.
