You can be sure that I have personally visited each and every one of these attractions and I list them because they are among the best things to do in Las Vegas. In fact, in some instances, I have had my kids "research"  things to do for kids in Las Vegas as well. Have fun and pace yourself because there is a lot to do on the Las Vegas strip.

    The New, Newer and Not so New Things to Do in Las Vegas Right Now

    Every time you plan a trip to Las Vegas you'll realize that so many new things have popped up that there is no way you can fit them all in on one trip. Well, you're right, there is no way you will succeed in doing everything but you can do some really good stuff that maybe you have overlooked or that is relatively new. Like these suggestions:

    • If you are a fan of Chef Gordon Ramsay your culinary fantasies will be fulfilled in Las Vegas. Hell's Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay has opened at Caesars Palace Las Vegas and it is a virtual television show wrapped up by a restaurant. The food is what you would expect from Ramsay and you'll notice a Hell's Kitchen winner running the kitchen. 
    • Sparrow and Wolf is an off-strip restaurant that has been opened by a chef with plenty of Las Vegas strip street cred. Chef Brian Howard is creating magic in the kitchen while the bar is crafting serious drinks and the room is tempting you to stay all night. Can your favorite Las Vegas restaurant...MORE be off the strip? You decide.
    • The Park Las Vegas is your spot for a drink and a meal before an event at T-Mobile Arena or for a casual lunch that is followed by a few too many beers.
    • Cocktails atLibertine Social will produce this urge to fill up on liquid calories but the kitchen teases you with shareable treats that pleasure you the way only Las Vegas can.
    • Morimoto Las Vegas will ruin you for all other Japanese cuisines in any spot you ever visit. You have been warned. Get a reservation at this restaurant inside the MGM Grand Las Vegas before you get into town. It can get busy.
    • How will you choose between Momofuku and Eggslut at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas?  An egg sandwich that will explode your palate or ramen that will punch your senses into a new category. Don't choose, have both.

    I just added these 20 things to do in Las Vegas because quite frankly, I had fun doing them as of late and they are worth a visit. Now you can see why there are more than 100 things to do in Las Vegas on this list.

    • Get a poolside massage at Delano Beach Club. Relax before and after a dip in the pool in this boutique pool off the main pool at Mandalay Bay

    Ten of My Current Favorite Things to Do in Las Vegas

    Las Vegas is not just about casino  action and late night dance marathons. Part of this list of 100 things to do in Las Vegas is about those things that will alter your thinking about Las Vegas.

    • Possibly the very best thing to do in Las Vegas is Sky Combat Ace Las Vegas. I understand if you don't like racing through the air or flying an airplane you might disagree. Of course, I'm sure you'll say I'm wrong if you don't like the idea of loops and plunges with your typical airplane rides. However, if you even remotely enjoy an elevation of adrenaline you will love Sky Combat Ace.
    • Coming in a very close second for favorite things to do in Las Vegas, Las Vegas Rock Crawlers is an adrenaline filled adventure on boulders and sand. You'll crawl along at very slow speeds while climbing and crawling rock faces with a jeep.
    • Visit the Grand Canyon - Recently, I have taken a helicopter, an airplane, and even a motorcycle to the Grand Canyon. Soar over Grand Canyon National park...MORE in a helicopter or hug the turns right beside the canyons on a Harley Davidson. It's a big hole in the ground but it is pretty impressive.
    • Maybe you like to keep your body closer to earth? I understand, in that case, head to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and go racing with Richard Petty Driving Experience. Go for a ride along or do the driving yourself.
    • The perfect thing to do when you need to unwind after a long day in Las Vegas is with a cocktail. The Hemingway Daiquiri awaits you at Petrossian Bar at Bellagio. The elegant setting and the friendly bartenders will have you dreaming of far away places and funny stories.
    • Need a meal? We all need to eat and the beef Wellington at Gordon Ramsay Steak is one of those things you must do in Las Vegas. The fish and chips will also make you excited and the rib cap will knock your socks off. This is also available at Hell's Kitchen Las Vegas.
    • Do you know how good it would be if you could get in some golf in Las Vegas? Hit the ball long and straight in the desert.
    • Do you love the lights of Las Vegas? Take a flight with Maverick Helicopters and see them from above.
    • My idea of near perfection when it comes to things to do in Las Vegas almost always involves too much fun. So, you'll head into Carlos n' Charlies at the Flamingo and order the ceviche and a giant margarita and learn to dance with the very friendly staff.
    • Explore CityCenter on the Las Vegas strip.It's not just that the buildings are nice and shiny. It's the art collection around the property, the impressive list of restaurant options and the world-class shopping at Crystals. Yes, I'm easily distracted by how nice everything is but what I really love is a spa treatment at Aria Spa.

    What I Could Do Right This Minute In Las Vegas

    LINQ Las Vegas

    • Brooklyn Bowl at the LINQ for an afternoon and an evening of food, drink, bowling, then dancing, then live music then...well, you get the point. A lot is going on and you should be there for it.
    • Go way up high over the Las Vegas strip at the LINQ Las Vegas and experience the High Roller. Grab a drink and take in this observation wheel in a very Las Vegas way.
    • Talk about recycling. Imagine a community center, social hot spot and retail mecca where the whole place is second hand. I don’t mean the clothing for sale--or the food--but the actual building. Downtown Container Park on East Fremont Street

    • El Loco at Adventuredome did something to me. It scared me. It rattled me. It changed my perspective. I think it has something to do with my 9-year-old telling me he hated the ride or with my 13-year-old making me ride it 7 times.

    • Corner Suite at Aria Las Vegas: Is there anything better than a great view from a hotel window? Is there? You look out the window and the generic room behind you falls...MORE away and all that you are left with is the excitement of a city or destination that is placed before you. The view is what you pay for. The view is why you choose the hotel. The Aria Las Vegas corner suite does that and so much more for me.

    • When you step into the Polaroid Fotobar you'll look around and realize just how long it has been since you have seen a real picture. I don't mean those glossy things you see in magazines, I mean the real deal. I'm talking about the type of pictures that hold memories and snapshots of moments in time that are just frozen and ready to be looked at.

    • If you love chocolate there is no need to deny yourself of the beauty that is Hershey's Chocolate World in Las Vegas.

    • I’m sitting near the stage at 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque at Mandalay Bay and I cannot take my attention away from the drink long enough to admire the burlesque dancer that is putting on a show for the crowd.

    • Why would you be looking for a gift shop in Las Vegas when every hotel has one that is far more convenient? First, everything at the Bonanza Gift Shop on the Las Vegas strip is significantly cheaper than what you’ll find in the hotel store.

    It's not always pool season in Las Vegas but it sure does feel like it.

There is a Las Vegas pool for everyone and you need to add a pool day to your list of things to do.
