Are there Las Vegas Things to do besides gamble?  Whether you live here year-round or are just visiting, if you can imagine it, there are Las Vegas Attractions for the old, young, male or female, traveling with kids, or traveling alone. 

There are unlimited great restaurants to enjoy with famous chefs and up and coming chefs, there are attractions to discover, tours to check out, events that are forever changing, kid themed areas, parks, events, shopping and yes; there are golf courses. It is not the question of what things to do but more of where do you begin?

Las Vegas Event Calendar - check out some of the locals activity with a listing of events and activities for residents and visitors alike. We also welcome contributions to our calendar on this page so please submit.

One of the number one reasons that people go to Vegas is the plethora of gambling possibilities. You can spend a penny or your life's savings. You can sit at a slot machine all day or visit the tables.

There are chances to gamble no matter where you are; including the airports and 7-elevens!

Now I do not recommend this habit as a resident ... but trying a little luck once in awhile can be fun.

Vegas With Children Okay, what if you are traveling with your kids? Well, fear not, they are not allowed on the gambling floors, but there are many things that they can enjoy. Visit our Las Vegas for Kids page for hundreds of things you can do with your children in LV. Yes, we have the arts, culture, and history too!

If you are staying at one of the hotels then check out their concierge services for events and attractions that are kid friendly.

On the Strip you will find Las Vegas things to do overwhelming, such as arcades, amusement rides, shopping, theaters, and a variety of things for kids in Vegas. One thing that may be worth your while is the Power Pass. This pass is an all-inclusive ticket to many of the area attractions.

The rates are dependent upon how many days you want and for what age group. It does include admission to many great attractions and more. You can purchase this pass online, so you will have it in-hand when you arrive.
