Get a History Lesson from the Best Las Vegas Boutique Hotels
Las Vegas history has always been rife with ties to the mob. It’s no secret that many of its towering casinos were built from mob money! Founded in 2012 by the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, the Mob Museum preserves and shares the history of Las Vegas' organized crime culture. You'll learn how the mob came to be so powerful in Las Vegas, how they were able to gain control of businesses like casinos and hotels and also some pretty cool artifacts—like Al Capone's cigar box (which he used as a safe), or the blackjack table from his favorite casino in Las Vegas (where he spent most of his time). You can also check out items that belonged to other famous mobsters like Meyer Lansky or Bugsy Siegel. If you want to get a taste of Las Vegas’ heyday, be sure to make a stop at the Neon Museum. An outdoor museum, it’s located on Las Vegas Boulevard, just south of downtown and about 1 mile from the famous Las Vegas Strip. The museum contains over 150 signs from Las Vegas' past. The signs have been restored to their original neon glory, and are displayed on several acres of property that includes a boneyard where dozens of signs are stacked up, waiting for their turn to be restored.
Some of the signs you'll see at the museum include "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" (which was originally part of a casino called Stardust), "Vegas Vic" (a cowboy who stands outside casinos), "Caesars Palace” and "Flamingo Hotel Casino.” Also be sure to stop by Fremont Street, where the original strip once stood. Some of Vegas’ oldest hotels and casinos, once frequented by The Rat Pack, still stand.
Explore the Desert from the Top Las Vegas Boutique Hotels
If you want a respite from the crowds, venture off into the desert landscape that surrounds the Strip. With towering red sandstone cliffs, Red Rock Canyon offers some beautiful views of the desert landscape and is perfect for those who want something less intense than hiking in the mountains.
If you're looking for something with a little more elevation gain and a bit more challenge, then Valley of Fire State Park is perfect. This park has two main trails: one that starts at an overlook point and another that takes advantage of some primitive camping sites located throughout the park's boundaries.
Finally, if you're feeling up for something more challenging than these two options then check out Mount Charleston Wilderness Area which spans over 500 square miles with dozens of different trails available.
