Las Vegas: Where else can you stroll down a neon paradise with a four-foot daiquiri at three in the morning? Where else can you see musicians, magicians, and mobsters in the same day? As much fun as you can have downtown, the Las Vegas locals know that some of the best adventures happen once you step off the Strip.
An Offer You Can’t Refuse
Meet the real players of Old Vegas. Steps from the bright lights of the Fremont Street Experience is Las Vegas’ Mob Museum, an interactive and fascinating look at America’s history of organized crime. Whether it’s the battle of wills and wits between the G-men and the made men or the fascinating look at a complex network of criminal activities, the museum does not disappoint. Walk through the museum’s interactive exhibits to learn about the history of the Mob from the earliest days of Prohibition to the present and see thousands of actual artifacts from bootleg gin casks to an actual Thompson machine gun.
Bright Lights, Big City
Step even further off the Strip to see Vegas’ own Neon Museum. With its visitors’ center hosted in the swooping arches of the La Concha Motel lobby, the museum provides a one-of-a-kind tribute to the classic neon signs that gave Vegas its unique, campy charm. Caesar’s Palace, Binion’s Horseshoe, the Golden Nugget, the Stardust — the Neon Museum has lovingly preserved those true icons of Old Vegas we’ve always loved.
You don’t want to leave Vegas without going on an outdoor adventure most tourists never see. Head out into the desert to the stark beauty of Red Rock or Rainbow Gardens. You think Sedona’s stunning? Wait until you see the Valley of Fire. Want some real fun? If visiting the Mob Museum made you want to shoot machine gun Las Vegas, you can do that too! Vegas is an amazing place for entertainment of all kinds!
