10 Coolest Things You Didnt Know You Could Do In Las Vegas

Nearly 40,000,000 people visited Las Vegas in 2012, and by most accounts the Las Vegas Strip was the third or fourth most popular tourist attraction in the world, dwarfing tourism icons such as Disney World and Niagara Falls. The city’s appeals are obvious, and the vast majority of visitors come for the gambling, world class dining, entertainment, and frenetic 24/7 action that outpaces every other U.S. city in terms of raw energy. Virtually every visitor to Las Vegas will stroll The Strip, catching the dancing fountain show at Bellagio, the erupting volcano at the Mirage, or the animated statues at Caesars Palace. Many will crane their necks to look up at the city’s own “Eiffel Tower,” and most will make it to recently revived Downtown Las Vegas and its Fremont Street Experience.

But almost all will miss a slate of very interesting and unique lesser known options, well worth seeking out and many of them available no place else. For instance, while Las Vegas is well known for its poker sharks, very few visitors know that Mandalay Bay’s aquarium, Shark Reef, is on of the few in the world that allows SCUBA certified guests to get in the tank and swim with actual sharks, such as the fierce Sand Tiger. In the same vein, several resorts worldwide let you swim with dolphins, but only the Mirage offers a Dolphin Trainer For The Day program – and even Dolphin Yoga! Cars are a huge attraction in Las Vegas, and at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway you can take the wheel of a 600HP NASCAR stock car or a $265,000 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. If you don’t want to drive yourself, ride shotgun around the oval with an instructor from The Richard Petty Driving Experience on high-speed “hot laps.” Or try the city’s newest just launched offering and drive three neo-classic American muscle cars on the open road, through 30 miles of pavement in Red Rock Canyon, including a new Dodge Challenger SRT8, the Corvette Z06 and the ridiculously overpowered 662-horsepower Shelby GT 500. For a much different kind of “driving,” only in Sin City can you take the controls of a bulldozer or excavator at Dig This Vegas, the city’s heavy equipment experience. What other fun things might you be missing when you head to Vegas? What about intimate sommelier-led wine classes or cocktail mixology school? Man vs. Food-style eating competitions?  What about golf lessons from the guy who taught Tiger Woods? Record breaking extreme roller coasters and the world’s fastest zip line both come to Las Vegas this year, along with many more offbeat offerings. Click on the slideshow to see the whole list.
