Most people head to Las Vegas to take an unorganized tour of the hotels and casinos. It is a highly popular destination for people all over the world to enjoy the fantastic amenities and dabble in a spot of gambling. Las Vegas plays host to some of the biggest stars in the world, from musicians to comedians. The opulent hotels have magnificent theaters and some even have rollercoasters perched precariously on roof tops. It is a playground for adults and just about everything is available.
But if you happen to time your trip right you can also enjoy fantastic annual events to give you even more entertainment. Here are some great recommendations that will make your Vegas trip even more exciting.
If you coincide your trip so it occurs in March, you can take advantage of one of the loudest car endurance races on the planet. NASCAR hits town and attracts audiences as large as sixty thousand people. The competitors have to drive around four hundred miles in this thrilling race, and there are many bets laid who will take the Vegas trophy.
Monster Jam Finals
Another major vehicle event held in March is the Monster Jam Finals that is basically giant trucks battling it out in the ring. Demolition Derbies are always a great fun, but the finals day in Vegas is extra special. Witnessing these huge trucks taking each other out is thrilling viewing, and if this is your sort of event then invest in VIP tickets to get a ringside seat.
World Series Poker
It is hardly surprising that the home of gambling in the U.S plays host to the World Series Poker event. Taking place each June and July, this highly popular spectacle creates a massive buzz around town. Over six and a half thousand poker players every year descend on Vegas to pledge ten thousand dollars to enter the competition. And the ultimate prize everybody wants is ten million dollars. It is just as much about bluffing as it is about skill and some really shady tactics come into play.
Atomic Liquor’s Sour Saturday
A great event for stag and hens’ weekends is the Atomic Liquor’s Sour Saturday, Vegas is not traditionally associated with craft beer. Cocktails and shooters, yes but craft beers – no. But this boozy event does not just serve up the standard craft beers that normal beer festivals do. The clue is in the name of the event, the Atomic Liquor’s Sour Saturday gathers beers from many states that are not available to buy almost anywhere else, and they are all sour. Be prepared to enjoy some unique flavors and have a really good party.
The Rodeo Finals
If you have ever been to Vegas around Christmas time, then you may have been slightly surprised by the number of cowboy hats on display. This is because the National Rodeo Finals are in town and cowboys from all over the country want to be a part of the event.
Vegas offers many things to a variety of people, but when these events are taking place the gambling city takes on another edge which adds an extra dimension to all the fun and games.
