#3 Liaison Nightclub Inside Bally’s

Don’t forget, the Holidays are a time for celebration and what better place for gays and lesbians to celebrate in Vegas than Liaison Nightclub, the first gay club on the Las Vegas strip, located inside Bally’s. Being the newest gay nightclub in Vegas is not the only thing going for Liaison; it has quickly become the most popular gay hot spot in the city and has been hosting major celebrities and throwing the hottest parties on the strip.
#2: The High Roller: The World’s Tallest Observation Wheel
Shining bright on the Las Vegas Strip, the 550-foot-tall High Roller is a true standout at The LINQ’s outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment promenade.
It’s hard to picture what a cabin looks like, since it can hold up to 40 people in one. There are benches on either side of the cabin, with plenty of floor space in between. But we imagine you’ll want to stand against the window and admire the view. Take a fun peek inside the High Roller.
Tickets are $24.95 during the day, $34.95 at night. You can fly solo or rent out an entire cabin for the ultimate bachelor, bachelorette or wedding party. Or, reserve bigger events at the High Roller’s wheelhouse.

Shark Tank at Golden Nugget – The Golden Nugget’s $30 million pool is an absolute stunner, not to mention an incredible feat of engineering. The Tank features a 200,000-gallon shark tank visitors can experience at a distance or up-close by riding the pool’s three-story water slide.
Scorpion Shot at Nacho Daddy – We’re not kidding. At Nacho Daddy restaurant, a few steps off Fremont Street on 4th Street, you can order an actual scorpion in your shot of whatever. Why you’d want to do that, we have no idea, but that’s beside the point. It’s Vegas, baby!
