A Traveler’s Guide to Secret Spots in Las Vegas
While Vegas might be a tantalizing destination for first-timers, for someone who’s seen their share of Vegas’ beauty, it’s understandable that you want something new—not just the glitz and glamour!
But this is Vegas we’re talking about, so you know there’s more mystique and magic hiding in the nooks and crannies of the city. You just have to sniff them out. But not without inside help!
To make your task easier, we asked our friendly neighborhood luggage storage providers in Las Vegas about Sin City’s hidden gems!
1. The Neon Boneyard
The strangest graveyard you’ll ever come across, the Neon Boneyard is the final resting place of some of the most famous neon signs in all of Las Vegas.
From retro-modern designs to burlesque boards, disused designs by the Young Electric Sign Company (150 of them) have been put on display. From the Silver Slipper and Golden Nugget to Aladdin’s Lamp (the first one!), you’ll find some real gems in there!
2. Dig This
One of the newest attractions in Vegas that’s sure to excite the child in you, Dig This is a construction-based theme park—complete with excavation and construction tools.
Though dangerous on paper, the park is strictly regulated so you don’t worry about anything. Yes, it’s a little expensive, but Dig This’ overall experience makes the ticket worth it.
3. Pinball Hall of Fame
Love pinball? Las Vegas has a warehouse full of the most treasured pinball machines in the country. Dedicated to different themes (with even a safe-breaking game thrown into the mix), playing these machines costs a whopping 25¢ per machine, and $1 for the newer models.
The perfect place for some good, clean fun, the Pinball Hall of Fame is the perfect spot if you’ve got kids in tow.
4. Burlesque Hall of Fame
Are you in the mood for something a little naughty? Then head to the Burlesque Hall of Fame! Strictly for visitors over 18—for obvious reasons— the Burlesque Hall of Fame, formerly known as Exotic World, documents the history of burlesque in the country.
Featuring an extensive collection of fliers for shows to old costumes and pasties, this collection shows how the art of the tease has evolved over the years.
5. Casa de Shenandoah
Want to see how the ‘other half’ lives? Head down to Casa de Shenandoah, Wayne Newton’s massive estate which is now open to the public.
Built over 52 acres of Vegas land, the eight homes on the estate are in addition to the different enclosures, arenas, horse stables, ponds, lakes and homes for housing his vintage car collection and memorabilia that Newton collected over the years.
Leave your luggage and any heavy bags with a Cubber in Las Vegas and head on down to these destinations on your Vegas trip.
