- Drive a Bulldozer – If you played with toy trucks when you were a kid, then this will be right up your alley. At Dig This, you can fulfill what might just be your lifelong fantasy of driving an actual bulldozer or excavator. For 90 minutes, you’ll build huge dirt mounds, dig gigantic trenches, and test your skills with some unique games like “Excavator Basketball.” You’ll also get the chance to do whatever you’d like in these enormous machines, under the watchful eye of the experts of course.
- Go Skiing – Skiing in Las Vegas? You’d be forgiven for not automatically connecting these two seemingly foreign concepts, but the truth might surprise you. Las Vegas sits about one hour away from the Mount Charleston and the Las Vegas Ski Resort, which receives about 240 inches of snow per year. The ski resort has 30 trails for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels, a bar and a restaurant, and an equipment shop that carries all the gear you’ll need to hit the slopes. Although ski season typically runs from November until April, you can still visit the resort during the summer if you want an escape from Las Vegas’ desert heat.
- Cruise in Your Dream Car – Many car enthusiasts dream of driving Lamborghinis, Ferraris, McLarens, and Porsches, but few get the opportunity. Yet in Las Vegas, you can do just that. Numerous companies offer the chance to experience the thrill of speeding a high-powered exotic car down straightaways and through hairpin turns on a professional race track. If that’s not enough, you could always rent one of these fantastic cars for a few hours, or a few days, and explore Las Vegas’ scenic desert highways in style.
- Browse Fascinating Museums – Las Vegas may be known for its casinos and wealth of entertainment, but this desert oasis is also home to a number of interesting museums. If you’re a pop culture fan, you can start with Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, home to wax statues of Hollywood celebrities, sports icons, music stars, and even Captain America. The Mob Museum, which tells the story of organized crime’s impact on Las Vegas, and the National Atomic Testing Museum are two other notable places to visit during your stay. For something a little more interactive, head to the Pinball Hall of Fame, a 10,000-square-foot arcade full of playable pinball machines and arcade games.
- Visit M&M’s World – Simply put, M&M’s World is a definite must see for chocolate lovers. The 28,000 square foot store occupies a four-story building less than half a mile from Polo Towers. Inside you’ll find an almost staggering number of M&M’s-related paraphernalia, including t-shirts, souvenirs, and plenty of chocolate. If that doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, stop by the Ethel M Chocolate factory, which produces its own line of gourmet chocolates. Go on a self-guided tour of the factory and then stroll through a botanical cactus garden home to more than 300 species of plants.
Where to Stay:
Polo Towers is located in the heart of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Check out the bright lights from your private balcony, slide into the rooftop pool or work out at the state-of-the-art fitness center. Turn up the music on the surround-sound speakers in your suite, as you get ready to open the door to Vegas. Las Vegas is the ultimate playground for the entire family.
