Las Vegas is in seventh place, with its endless array of fun times for every type of traveler. Animal lovers are particularly in luck, as Las Vegas and North Las Vegas boast the most zoos and aquariums per capita in the country. Vegas also ranked impressively for most ice cream and frozen yogurt shops per capita, perfect for curing your sweet tooth. © Choneschones | Dreamstime.com

You already know you’re going to spend your nights in Las Vegas on casino floors, playing machines, or in swanky clubs and restaurants — maybe you’ll even get a chance to see a show.

 

That still leaves the question: How are you going to spend the day in Las Vegas? We have some ideas.

 

Shopping

You may not need any help in this department, as the Strip is literally lined on both sides with shops ranging high to low.

 

Big Apple Coaster and Arcade

Located in front of the New York New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, the Big Apple Coaster and Arcade is a great way to spend the day. Feel like a kid on thrilling rollercoaster rides and get a fun view of the Strip from the top. If virtual reality is what you’re after, the Big Apple Coaster Virtual Reality Experience is located above the crowds of the Strip.

 

Hershey’s Chocolate World

Get some sugar in your system at Hershey’s Chocolate World. The retail space is more than just a chocolate shop. Guests enjoy interactive experiences with candy and chocolates while stocking up on gifts for home or themselves.

 

Shark Reef Aquarium

Over in Mandalay Bay, visit more than 2,000 sea creatures residing at the Shark Reef Aquarium. Check out the resident sharks, stingrays, reptiles and endangered green sea turtles.

 

CSI: The Experience

For true crime fans, the Las Vegas CSI Experience is a fun way to dip your toe in the fun of forensic science. The all-new experience, opened in January, offers new challenges and experiences for your crime-fighting family.

Snowshoeing Mont-Tremblant

If you are traveling to a world-class ski resort, I am willing to bet snowshoeing is not the first activity you have in mind. When faced with the prospect of carving up a mountain on skis or trudging through the snow, most will choose skis.

Krokstrom Klubb

During a recent trip to Kansas City, my husband and I decided to take a break from the city’s popular barbecue scene to sample Scandinavian comfort food at Krokstrom Klubb.

Work and Play in Italy
