If you don’t want to gamble, or you’ve already lost too much money to the house, get out and see what else Vegas has to offer.

Fly over the strip
The best way to see the fantastic Las Vegas lights is by air. Flying in and out of Las Vegas International Airport will give you a glimpse of the city from the sky but a helicopter tour is really the best way to take in the city strip, and snap some great photos while you’re at it.
