10 Great Daytime Las Vegas Attractions

Everybody knows that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but it doesn’t all happen after dark. Sin City has plenty to offer those non-nocturnal vacationers who are looking for something different to do during daylight hours. Here are ten ideas for daytime activities in Las Vegas.

Lake Las Vegas

Located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas strip in Henderson, Lake Las Vegas is a oasis all it’s own with beautiful luxury hotels, spas, and two golf courses surrounding a beautiful lake. There is of course gambling to be had, but Lake Las Vegas adds a quiet desert serenity that you really can’t get on the Strip.

Las Vegas Premium Outlets

If shopping is your thing, then you are going to be in heaven at the Las Vegas Premium Outlet Mall. The mall boasts shops ranging from Adidas, Sean John & Nautica to Liz Claiborne, Calvin Klein, Aeropostale and Bose. Whether you hit it big at the casino or not, you’ll be able to get a lot for your dollar at this bargain hunter’s dream mall.

The Midway at The Excalibur Hotel

In keeping with the jovial medieval theme at The Excalibur, the Midway offers an array of carnival games with a King Arthur style twist to them. Here you can try your luck for a chance to win a stuffed dragon for a fair maiden, or just enjoy some classic arcade games and air hockey while beating the afternoon heat.

Star Trek: The Experience (At The Las Vegas Hilton)

Trekkies rejoice! The Star Trek Experience is a virtual reality, multimedia extravaganza that places you on the deck of the enterprise for a mission spanning different galaxies. When you’re done saving the universe, there is also a Star Trek museum, and themed restaurant complete with favorites like the Cardassian Cooler. If you know the difference between a Cardassian and a Kardashian, then you will love Stark Trek: The Experience.

The Lion Habitat At MGM Grand

The lion’s roar that made MGM films famous is alive and well at the Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand hotel. The lions on display actually live on an 8 acre ranch outside the city, and are transported to the hotel each day for all to see. Visitors can get a great close up view of these majestic beasts free of charge.

Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat (At the Mirage)

Another great destination for animal lovers, the Secret Garden is home to Siegfried and Roy’s white tigers as well as Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. The Secret Garden offers an exclusive Trainer For A Day package where you can actually spend the day as a dolphin trainer, feeding, playing, and swimming with the dolphins.

The Price Is Right Live (The Jubilee Theater At Ballys)

If you grew up watching The Price Is Right on television, you’re not going to want to miss the opportunity to see this show for the chance to be a contestant on the show! Truth be told, it’s not the exact same thing as the television show, but you can still win cars, appliances and vacations. You have to be 21 to see the show and there’s no guarantee you’ll win anything, but it sure is fun to watch and hope you get picked!

Masquerade Show In The Sky (The Rio All Suites Hotel)

For a little taste of Mardi Gras, you can head off the Strip to the Rio Suites hotel where you can take in a New Orleans style parade. The floats aren’t on the ground though, they’re up in the sky! Special floats travel through parts of the casino and revelers throw Mardi Gras beads to lucky people on the ground. Unlike New Orleans though, all you have to do get some beads is wave your hands.

The Miracle Mile Shops (At The Planet Hollywood Hotel)

If you’re looking to do some shopping a little bit closer to The Strip, The Miracle Mile shops offer over 170 retailers including Bebe, H&M, and Quicksilver. Just in case you haven’t had enough gambling excitement during your trip, there’s even a store where you can purchase a real deal slot machine to take home with you.

The Shark Reef Aquarium (At Mandalay Bay)

If lions, tigers, and dolphins aren’t your thing, you can visit the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay whose 1.6 million gallons of seawater is home to sharks, rays, piranha, jellyfish and crocodiles. With over 2,000 fish and animals on display, you’re bound to find something you’ve never seen before.

From shopping sprees to game shows to starship adventures, there’s a lot happening in Vegas during the daylight hours, and this list only begins to scratch the surface of what’s available. There’s no reason why night owls should have all the fun in Vegas!
