Where to Enjoy Vegas From Above

Where to Enjoy Vegas From Above

There’s no doubt that Vegas is a beautifully eclectic city with one of the most interesting skylines in all the world. The raw natural beauty of the desert landscapes combined with the breathtaking excitement and lights of the Strip makes the city truly unique. The sheer size of the valley is impressive in its own right.

Although there are plenty of different places around town to take in the stunning views of Vegas, some may just provide a more impressive vantage point than others. So, if you are looking to experience Vegas from a different perspective, check out these 4 places.

Stratosphere Observation Deck

For an unparalleled view of the Vegas skyline, pay a visit to the tallest freestanding observation deck in the United States. At 1,149 feet tall, the Stratosphere Observation Deck offers a truly unique experience coupled with one of the best views of the city.

The Stratosphere offers both inside and outside viewing, and even AirBar, a place to take in the views while sipping a cocktail. You are not soon to forget a view of Vegas from the Stratosphere.

The Eiffel Tower

Travel up 46 stories in a glass elevator and tour a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. This is great for anyone looking for exceptional views from above, right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The 360-degree views offer guests some of the best photo opportunities in the entire city.

If you time it correctly, you may even be able to catch a showing of one of the most famous water and light shows in the world right across the street.

The High Roller at the Linq

The High Roller is one of the most recent additions to the iconic Vegas skyline, and it does not disappoint. It’s not a Ferris wheel, but an observation wheel that was specially designed to offer spectacular views of the entire city on a ride the whole family will love.

The wheel takes you 550 feet in the air, but at a slow pace, so you have plenty of time to roam around and take in Vegas from tons of different vantage points. A full ride takes about 30 minutes but offers guests the opportunity to experience Vegas in a way unlike ever before.

The Voodoo Zip Line

For the thrill seeker looking for a unique view of Vegas, look no further than the Voodoo Zip Line. Adventurers will get the opportunity to soar through the open air between two Rio towers — 450 feet above the ground at 33 miles per hour.

Although the ride is quick, at about one minute long, the sheer exhilaration coupled with the unforgettable views is not something you will soon forget. The location offers magnificent views of the Strip, and the surrounding valley.

Wherever you go to take in the astounding Las Vegas views, you can escape the bustle of the city in a tropical paradise. Many of Tahiti Village’s luxurious suites in Las Vegas overlook the sandy beach and the luscious landscaping that surrounds one Las Vegas’s longest lazy rivers. Shouldn’t your hotel have a view too?
