5 Things to do in Las Vegas this spring

Millions flock to the bright lights and exhilarating attractions of Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, every year. Thanks to numerous portrayals in pop culture— about 94 films, 54 TV shows, and counting — Las Vegas is prominent for its posh casino resorts, but there’s definitely more to do in this city of lights than high-stakes gambling.

Below are some of the best things to do in Las Vegas this spring.

  1. See Las Vegas from above

    There’s nowhere else in the world where you can feast your eyes on a world-famous cityscape that has the Eiffel Tower, Egyptian Pyramids, Sphinx, the Statue of Liberty, and Venice’s Grand Canal. And the best way to admire Las Vegas and its collection of ingenious replicas is by taking a helicopter ride around the city.

    If you want to see Las Vegas in style (and sans traffic), check out the following helicopter tour providers you can find in the area:

  2. Check out the Grand Canal Shoppes

    Whether you’re in the mood for some luxury shopping or spending a relaxing afternoon beside a life-like replica of Venice’s Grand Canal, this resort-style mall at The Grand Venetian is a must-visit. Top fashion brands like Michael Kors, Montblanc, and Valiant Paris line its opulent, Venice-themed walkways. Don’t feel like walking around? You can even ride a gondola while you shop!

  3. Explore the Mob Museum

    Las Vegas once was the stomping ground for organized crime in the mid 20th century. If this part of American history interests you, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, best known as the Mob Museum, is worth paying a visit. Aptly housed in a historic Neoclassical courthouse, the museum contains various artifacts and interactive exhibits that detail the gritty history of the mob in Las Vegas and the US in general.

  4. Snap some photos by The Bellagio Fountains

    Located in front of The Bellagio Resort & Casino, this iconic Las Vegas landmark was prominently featured in the Steven Soderbergh heist classic, Ocean’s Eleven. Over a thousand fountains sway and shoot up in a number of patterns, in sync with the accompanying music and lights. The Bellagio Fountains are displayed for the public daily, with the following schedules:


    • Every 30 minutes from 3:00PM to 6:30PM
    • Every 15 minutes from 7:00PM until midnight

    Weekends and holidays

    • very 30 minutes from 12NN to 6:30PM
    • Every 15 minutes from 7:00PM until midnight.
  5. Book tickets for Cirque du Soleil shows

    Shows produced by Cirque du Soleil continuously set a high bar in the Las Vegas entertainment scene — and there’s more than a handful to choose from. Here’s where you can start:

    • The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage: This masterful ode to the era-defining rock ‘n’ roll quartet not only showcases some of your favorite Beatles songs, but also a talented cast of aerialists, acrobats, and dancers that will leave you awestruck.
    • Michael Jackson One at The Mandalay Bay: A consistent crowd pleaser, this show goes on a deeper dive into the King of Pop’s body of work without too much acrobatics going on in the background.
    • O at The Bellagio. This oddly named production is one of the most prominent Cirque shows. The element of water is the centerpiece of this entrancing and beautiful performance.
