Mon, Jan 27, 2020

Where Traveler

See the city from up above when you partake in these low- and high-adrenaline activities.

Get a bird’s-eye view of our sprawling city while soaring over the Strip in a helicopter or practicing reverse prayer pose in the world’s tallest observation wheel. We’ve rounded up 10 fantastic vantage points you’ll have to see for yourself.

EIFFEL TOWER
You’ll feel transported to the City of Light as the half-scale replica of the famous tower at Paris Las Vegas sparkles below your feet. Bon voyage!

FLY LINQ
Zip over The Linq Promenade and those who haven’t yet mustered up the courage to see the city superhero-style.

HIGH ROLLER
Panoramic views are provided inside this observation wheel at The Linq Promenade’s cabins. Elevate your ride with a yoga or open bar package.

MAVERICK HELICOPTERS
Spend your evening aboard a whirlybird, marveling at the now-miniature skyscrapers illuminated on the Strip.

SKYDIVE LAS VEGAS
Sure, the initial rush of jumping out of a plane may alter your viewing experience; but, the parachute ride will allow you to take in the sights.

SKYFALL LOUNGE
Sip a Half Light cocktail as you watch the sun slip below the horizon, all from the top of the Delano.

SKYJUMP
Actually, you may not want to look before you leap when launching yourself off The STRAT tower—you’ll descend from 855 feet in the air.

TOPGOLF
Even if you lose, the vista from your hitting bay is a hole-in-one at the MGM Grand location of Topgolf.

TOP OF THE WORLD RESTAURANT
It can be hard to stake out where you want to sit and stare at the Strip. Luckily, this restaurant at The STRAT, 800 feet up, revolves 360 degrees every 80 minutes. You’ll see it all.

VEGAS BALLOON RIDES
Hop inside a giant basket and glide over stunning scenery, morning, noon or night.
