                      About Under 21 Las Vegas




Under 21 Las Vegas’ mission is to be the most innovative, comprehensive, and
helpful Las Vegas travel company that caters directly to the under 21 crow. We
understand that there are many sites that cater to kids and families who go to Las
Vegas, but what about the other group- the 18-20 year old crowd?

We understand that it can be frustrating to find things to do in Las Vegas if you
can’t gamble, party, or got to clubs. That’s why it’s our passionate duty to help
you find the best shows, attractions, shopping, events, and dining that Las Vegas
has to offer. As an added bonus, if you happen to be a college or high school
student, we even list the best Vegas gigs that offer student discounts.

Under 21 Las Vegas features more Vegas travel choices than any other website
for the under 21 crowd, not including kids, from hotels to shows to tours to the
best restaurants in town and beyond.

Welcome to Under 21 Las Vegas! Taking the Sin Out of Sin City.
                                                                           Page |4

                  Welcome! My Vegas-Bound Friends




W          elcome my Vegas-bound friends. In here you will find the best
           attractions, restaurants, shopping, spas, outdoor activities, and shows
           that are great for those less than 21 years old. You see, I understand
that there are many guidebooks out there about Las Vegas, but unfortunately they
truly only focus on the people who can gamble, party, drink, etc…Some
guidebooks do talk about kids in Las Vegas but they are missing that one
particular group, the 18-20 crowd. That’s why it is my goal to provide you with
the best information to help you make the most out of your Las Vegas trip. From
little kids to young adults, this book is the ultimate guide for the under 21 crowd. I
even hid a few little surprises and secrets. So let’s find those surprises. Come on
in!

          Before We Begin: A Little Bit about Viva Las Vegas




L    as Vegas, Nevada really is a remarkable accomplishment if you think about it. This
     fabulous vacation location was literally created from nothing right out of the middle of the
     desert. But it has become such a notorious place whose reputation for fun and excitement
is legendary.

To say it isn’t a historic site would be a mistake. Many of our great cultural icons had important
times in Las Vegas. And some really great movies were filmed with Las Vegas as their
backdrop. Consider the exciting song we used for the title of this article, Viva Las Vegas. Elvis
Presley, one of the great figures of pop culture, loved this town and extolled the excitement that
could be found there in song. Many other great movie and music stars made Las Vegas the
site of some of their greatest performances. One such striking entertainment moment was when
Frank Sinatra and the hit “rat pack” made the wonderful movie Ocean’s Eleven in Las Vegas, a
movie that has spawned a whole series of movies in modern times staring George Clooney,
Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and a host of other big movie stars.
                                                                                          Page |8


To say that big stars are commonplace in Las Vegas would be an understatement. And if we
are looking for great sites to see, the availability of shows by some of the brightest and the best
of Hollywood, Rock and Roll, Broadway, and Cirque du Soleil are all available in Las Vegas.
For very reasonable prices, you can take time away from your whirlwind schedule of fun and
excitement to see some of the best performances you will ever see right there in the resorts
along the Las Vegas strip.

Las Vegas has also become synonymous with fast living and “adult” type entertainment. It’s an
outstanding location for a honeymoon or that little get away with your spouse where you might
want to enjoy some grown up entertainment without the little ones along. Most people are
usually told not to feel guilty as they pack their kids off to grandma’s house so that they can
treat themselves to a few fun filled days of casino action, luxurious rooms, great food and a
nightlife that cannot be beat. This is the kind of grown up excitement that Las Vegas is known
for, hence the name “Sin City,” but that is now changing (you’ll see later in this book).

This is not to say that your stay in Las Vegas won’t be fun or that you have to leave the kids
home. There is plenty to do even if it is just lounging around the pool and relaxing in the
Jacuzzis. The casinos know that many of us want our families to enjoy vacation as much as we
do, so there is plenty for the kids to do and things you can do as a family together. Some of the
shows like the amazing circus acts can amaze and entertain young and old alike.

You can also take a day and get a tour of this wonderful town and some of the surrounding
attractions. The desert itself can be of great interest to the kids and maybe mom and dad too if
you have never visited this kind of natural setting. There are plenty of tours of surrounding sites
but one of the most enjoyable is a tour of the Hoover Dam not far from town. You can see one
of the wonders of modern engineering and even how this dam is used to create energy and
control the mighty Colorado River.

Las Vegas is just one of so many great sightseeing and vacation sites that are available in this
country of such rich diversity. If the adults enjoy some gambling, the casinos offer many games
and entertaining diversions to give you that fun. And it isn’t true that you will always lose or
come out of there a pauper. If the kids enjoy shopping, eating, and show watching, Las Vegas
offers the best of those three worlds. Las Vegas is a city of great history and significance that is
now redefining itself as family destination.

                       Taking the “Sin” out of “Sin City”




L  as Vegas is a city of dazzling lights, stunning casinos, elegant shopping, extravagant clubs,
   breathtaking shows, and my favorite, world class food. In Las Vegas, you’ll find restaurants
run by the world’s finest chefs, opulent spas, and some of the most sophisticated hotels in the
world, all of which have their own special theme that caters to almost all likes and interests. So
why do people come here in the first place? Well mostly for the casinos, partying, and
strippers, hence the name “Sin City”. But mainly because there is simply no other place on
Earth like it.

When you look Las Vegas and all of its amenities, you can pretty much assume that it’s a place
where kids and teens shouldn’t be, right? Wrong! There is a completely different side of Las
Vegas that not too many people are familiar with. A side that also caters to families, teens,
and young adults (under 21 of course).
                                                                                        P a g e | 10


In this book, I will convince you that Las Vegas is not only just a playground for adults, but also
a great destination for families and the under 21 crowd.

                         Why go to Vegas if Under 21?




L    as Vegas is not just a city for gambling, partying, clubbing and other sinning. There are
     also a lot of amazing attractions and experiences that can be extremely entertaining, most
     of which do not have an age limit. In Vegas you can experience some of the best shows
in the world, indulge yourself in gourmet eats, shop till you drop, relax in award winning spas,
ride extreme rides, experience the outdoors, or just take in the breathtaking architecture and
atmosphere. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Before we dive in, let’s check out our rating system. Please be aware that this system doesn’t
rate the attractions since we have an even better one for that.

                              Resorts and Hotels




Las Vegas is home to some of the most beautiful, modern, elegant, and
technologically advanced hotels in the world. These architectural marvels are no
less than spectacular during the day, but at night, the bright and vivid neon lights
create the famous Las Vegas skyline we are all accustomed too. Now I
understand that in Las Vegas, you must be over 21 to book a hotel room, so
instead of going into great detail of the hotels, I decided just to give you brief, yet
very informative information about each Las Vegas hotel that I believe will be
very suitable for you.

that features a private golf course,
an artificial mountain with a 5-story
waterfall, a million-gallon water
tank for the nightly show Le Reve,
ultra-upscale shopping esplanade
as well as possibly the best buffet in
Las Vegas. Right next door is the
more luxurious, all suite resort by
Steve Wynn called Encore. Once
you go to these two resorts, you
truly won’t want to leave.

                                    Outdoor activities




T   he first thing most people think of when thinking of Las Vegas is the strip. Bright blinking
    neon lights, loud music, and spotlights are more of what people envision in Vegas than
wide open spaces, Natural Park like settings, nature watches, and the beauty of the desert at
sunset. Of course that is if you can get a little ways out of Vegas otherwise you'll never notice
the sun going down for all the bright lights.

If you love the great outdoors there are plenty of places to get out there and enjoy nature in
and around the Las Vegas area. You can do a lot more than view wildlife in any of these parks
and each one offers something special to those that visit. I would hope that you could enjoy
them all, however I would recommend that you spend at least one day of your trip outdoors in
nature somewhere.

Here are some of the great types of outdoor activities that you can partake of during your trip
to Las Vegas

Boulder City; Price: $149

will be able to get an aerial view of Las Vegas and its surrounding areas. The most thrilling and
amazing part is taking a night helicopter flight over the neon-lit Las Vegas strip. Check out ALL
VEGAS TOURS for a complete list and pricing for helicopter tours.

Landsail…Race your friends as you pilot a land yacht that sails through the desert. This is a fun
and exciting trip to sail throughout the deserts of Las Vegas. Price: $125

the non-stop Vegas action. This mountain also turns into a ski resort when winter comes around

views most wouldn't expect to see near a major city like Las Vegas. Red Rock offers desert
beauty, towering red cliffs and abundant wildlife. Price: $7 per car

notable one located right on the Strip is the Wynn Golf Course on the property of the Wynn Las
Vegas. For information and comprehensive lists of Las Vegas’ golf courses, check out Las
Vegas Golf
