When it comes to cities that never sleep, Las Vegas might have New York beat. Soaking up some rays at the pool and strutting down the Strip with a margarita in hand may make for fun daytime activities, but once the sun goes down in Las Vegas, the real party starts. You could dance all night at a club, sip scotch in an after-hours lounge, or chow down on prime rib at a 24-hour steakhouse—or you could book one of these awesome nighttime tours.
From soaring through the sky above a canopy of neon lights to heading out on an expedition that quite literally shows you the city’s best haunts, these Las Vegas nighttime tours are worth checking out.
Grand Canyon Sunset
A road trip to the Grand Canyon is a classic southwest adventure, but there’s one problem; it deprives you of precious hours in Las Vegas. Split the difference by booking a Grand Canyon sunset helicopter tour. You’ll be whisked away from the Strip by air and then you’ll land on the precipice of the West Rim where you’ll savor champagne and snacks while you watch the sunset. After that, it’s back to Las Vegas, where you’ll still have plenty of time to experience whatever else the night has in store.
Vegas Nights Helicopter
Not really feeling the idea of leaving the confines of Clark County? We get it. After dark, see the city from above by catching a ride on a nighttime helicopter tour of the Strip. From the Bellagio Fountains to the Eiffel Tower light show all the way to the tip of the Stratosphere, you’ll realize how beautiful the city and the surrounding desert look from the sky. A complimentary glass of champagne makes the experience even more luxurious.
Goodsprings Ghost Tour
The legendary Pioneer Saloon is less than an hour away from the Las Vegas Strip—but it feels like a remote desert locale. If you like old western watering holes and tales about spirits who have not yet learned to rest in peace, a Goodsprings ghost tour is the ideal after dark excursion for you. Enjoy a tour of a haunted Nevada saloon plus pizza, drinks, and a journey through the nearby cemetery and abandoned buildings.
Haunted Vegas Tour
Are Las Vegas’ dearly departed celebrities still around? Find out by taking a haunted Vegas tour. Learn how to use EMF meters to seek out ghosts as you journey through some of the city’s spookiest sites. Along the way, your tour guide will tell you the city’s real ghost stories. You’ll see casinos, hotels, and other locations where mobsters, performers, and anonymous visitors have lost their lives.
Panoramic Night Tour
Sometimes it feels like there’s too much to see in Las Vegas—especially if you’re trying to see it all on foot. Give the soles of your shoes a break by opting for a night aboard an open-air double decker bus. You’ll hit all of the best spots including the Luxor, New York New York, the Bellagio Fountains, and the Mirage volcano show—and you’ll be in a prime position to get photos of everything.
