A somewhat different type of sightseeing experience is the Stratosphere roller coaster. You are up around 300 meters in the air going around the building at light speed. Certainly a fun experience. Otherwise, just walk around. Every casino is a sight of its own. I recommend to stop by the big fountain at the Bellagio, which is always amazing.

Address:
2000 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV

Price:
It is free for casino guests and $10 for non-guests. Reservations are needed.

Opening Hours:
The ride is open 10am - 10pm daily and until 12 on Fri and Sat.

How to get there:
Just drive down the Strip, the Stratosphere is close to the Mirage, and Circus Circus. However, if you don't know Vegas too much, simply look up to the Sky and drive towards the large tower.
