We got asked to pull together a guide to Las Vegas for our friends at Bag Girl.
If youâ€™re planning a trip to Las Vegas â€“ or even looking to make the most of your EDC trip â€“ we have pulled together a little guide which includes some of our most favourite things to do in Sin City.
EXPLORE THE LAS VEGAS STRIP
Donâ€™t fancy walking it? Zip through on a Segway, or catch a ride with an Elvis impersonator to see the action from a Pink Cadillac.
Old casinos never die in Vegas. They may get knocked down, rebuilt and remodelled like the Aladdin (once the Tally Ho, eventually Planet Hollywood), but one bit of them lasts forever: their neon signs. Travel north along the Las Vegas strip, past downtown, and you eventually see a large silver slipper on the central reservation. Itâ€™s the first sign that youâ€™re close to the Neon Museum, collector and preserver of old neon signs and artefacts from Vegas history.

SHOP AROUND THE WORLD
Where else could you shop next to the canals of Venice one minute and stroll down a French boulevard the next? Or how about a wander around an â€œexotic-themedâ€ market bazaar? Vegas has them all.Â Itâ€™s fun to take a gondola ride among the shops under fluffy white clouds in a blue sky. And if you get fed up with constantly sunny skies, the Miracle Mile has an indoor thunderstorm, complete with rain. Or a laser show. And this is the thing about shopping in Vegas: there is always something to see aside from the shops, be it moving statues, a singing gondolier or a fashion show.
In old downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street is a pedestrian-only area with all kinds of unique sites. A five-block section of Fremont Street is covered over with a canopy of LED lights that illuminate the sky in a spectacle of different colors and designs as you walk below. Known as the Fremont Street Experience, each night a fantastic music and visual show takes place overhead. Street performers and special entertainment acts often perform outdoors in this area. Fremont Street is in downtown Las Vegas, a few kilometres from the Strip. It is best to take a taxi to reach this area.
This is the ORIGINAL Las Vegas with sites that hark back as early as the 1930â€™s (If you go to the Neon Boneyard then youâ€™ll leave a Freemont expert). There are some really cool, hip bars nestled in between theÂ bright lights of Freemont too. Top tip: the Commonwealth roof terrace.
