Las Vegas has no shortage of viewpoints, but how about combining the perfect shimmering locations with a sense of adventure?  Here are our best suggestions.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas is impossible to miss. Built to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the French Revolution, the replica is one of the first things you notice while stepping onto the Strip.

Surprisingly, not everyone knows that it has an observation deck. Vegas’ Eiffel Tower is about half the height of the real one in Paris, but let’s not forget that Sin City is a fraction the size of the City of Love; hence, you get to see the whole of Las Vegas in the palm of your hand. As someone who has been up both towers, I find this one much more relaxing, intimate, and cozy.

There are no long queues and unnecessary dilemmas whether to use a lift of stairs. The procedure is very straightforward, you enter from the casino, show your tickets and take a 46-story ride on the glass elevator up this stunning attraction for 360-degree views, including an aerial view of the fountain show at the Bellagio.

Tickets don’t have a fixed slot, so you can come at any time from 5pm to 1am, 7 days a week, and spend as much time at the top as you like. Before sunset, you can enjoy panoramic views of the beautiful Vegas Valley, the surrounding mountains, and the lively crowds below. When it gets darker, Las Vegas turns into the brightest spot on Earth. Don’t take our word for it – this is an official status given to Vegas by NASA due to the concentration of lights around its hotels and casinos.

Whether you seek a romantic rendezvous, a thrilling escapade, or simply a breathtaking vista, the Las Vegas Eiffel Tower promises something to captivate every soul for a very reasonable price of $25. A small price to pay for the best view in Vegas. The upcoming Paris Olympics make this place even more special

High Roller

The Las Vegas High Roller celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Opened in 2014 as the highest observation wheel in the world, it redefined the Las Vegas skyline. It’s now the second largest, after the Ain Dubai (Dubai Eye), but remains one of the city’s top highlights.

The High Roller features 28 spacious, air-conditioned cabins to accommodate guests on their journey to 168 meters above the ground. With sweeping 360-degree views, the giant observation wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution. During this time, you can enjoy the magnitude of Las Vegas spread out before your eyes. On the onboard screens, you’ll see videos and information about both the big wheel and the city.

The cabins are stationary, so they don’t “swing” like old Ferris wheels. From a distance, the motion of The High Roller is nearly imperceptible. Riders can move around and see the views from all angles. The daytime views of Harry Reid International Airport, the desert, mountains, and canyons beyond the Strip are impressive. At night, you can enjoy the sparkling Las Vegas Strip resorts and the striking Sphere.

If you don’t want to just sit and enjoy the ride, book a special experience in advance, like an open-bar experience with drinks served in your pod. You can even get married on the High Roller.

Fly LINQ Zipline

The attraction is the first and only zip line on the Las Vegas Strip. Fly LINQ features 10 side-by-side zip lines and is capable of simultaneously launching all riders 12 stories above the LINQ Promenade.

You can fly with exhilarating speed over the entertainment district towards the High Roller. It isn’t as scary as one might think; the maximum speed you can fly is 35 mph, making the ride comfortable enough to enjoy the view. The total length of this adventure is 45 seconds.

Guests can opt to purchase professional photos – either individually or as a group – dressed in full flight gear and in mid-air. If you want to overcome your fear of heights, or simply don’t have one, this attraction is perfect for you. And good news – unlike other zip lines we’ve tried in the past, you do not need to leave your valuables at the departure point. The bag with all your belongings will travel with you, attached to your harness.
