Things to Do in Vegas on Your Own

Vegas is a fantastic city for solo travelers. Las Vegas is the perfect place to go if you want to escape your routine full of life and entertainment. This famous city attracts millions of visitors each year, many of whom come alone.

Las Vegas is a great place for solo travel because it’s easy to meet people! Whether you want a few drinks at the bar with new friends or to join like-minded tourists on a day trip, it’s simple to socialize in this party town. Whether you want to try your luck at a casino where some of the world-famous players won WSOP, or want to enjoy the buzzing nightlife, Vegas has something for everyone!

Go to the Fremont Street Experience

Fremont Street is one of the oldest streets in Las Vegas, and it was the first paved street. The Fremont Street Experience is a five-block entertainment district, located in historic downtown Las Vegas. It’s also home to more than 12 million LED lights on Viva Vision, the largest single video screen in all of North America!

The light show, which runs every hour on the hour from 6 p.m. to midnight, features music ranging from classic rock to country, along with a light show that will blow your mind! You can walk around and explore the entire area for free. There are restaurants and shops located throughout Fremont Street, too.

Check out the Neon Museum

It’s not a secret that Las Vegas is known for its flashy, neon lights. But not many tourists know the story behind them. The Neon Museum gives you insight into what the signs were like back in the day and how they’ve evolved over time.

The museum is home to more than 150 old signs from various casinos and hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard. A visit here will give you an inside look at some of the most iconic signs in Vegas history. You might even see your favorite hotel sign!

The museum is located in Downtown Las Vegas and it’s open year-round with tours starting at 9 a.m., seven days a week.

Get Outdoors

There are loads of options to explore nature in Vegas. Here are just a few:

  • Hiking in Red Rock Canyon. If you want to get away from the crowds and explore the outdoors, consider hiking at Red Rock Canyon. It’s about a 30-minute drive outside of the Vegas Strip, so it’s easy to get to. They even have a shuttle bus service that collects hikers near many of the hotels on The Strip.
  • Lake Mead National Recreation Area and Hoover Dam: Lake Mead National Recreation Area is less than an hour outside of Las Vegas, making it an ideal day trip destination for your solo trip. In addition to its watersports opportunities (like kayaking and paddleboarding), there are miles of trails available that make for great hiking experiences.
  • Take a tour: Don’t let being alone discourage you from taking tours or excursions while you’re in Vegas. There are tons of options for guided tours around Nevada, including Grand Canyon tours, Death Valley tours, Antelope Canyon tours, hot air balloon rides above Vegas, helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon West Rim and so much more.

Enjoy Entertainment and Shows

La Vega has a thriving performing arts scene, with everything from ballet to Broadway productions appearing in the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Even if you don’t care for whatever is showing at any given moment, the center itself is worth visiting for its outstanding architecture, elegant design and artwork, and wide-ranging art installation exhibits.

Visit one of the Many Museums

The Mob Museum dives into Sin City’s long history of mob connections and corruption with hands-on exhibits. It also offers guided tours that explore various aspects of Vegas’s mob heritage through displays both inside and outside the museum.

The National Atomic Testing Museum offers a fascinating look at nuclear testing—specifically aboveground testing—in Nevada beginning in the 1940s, as well as its effects on our world today. It includes a wide range of artifacts, interactive exhibitions, photos and videos, a restored underground test house gallery (a bunker), and much more.

Pinball machines were once ubiquitous sights across America but have since declined in popularity since their heyday—which makes them all the more interesting now! Thankfully for fans of these old games, there are still plenty to be found at Pinball Hall of Fame—more than 150! And if you want to play these vintage games without paying, then head over here: entrance is always free!
