Anyone who thinks that you always have to get on a plane to skydive is wrong. In Las Vegas you have the opportunity to experience free fall without a plane and even without a parachute. How it works? Very easily. The basis for this is an oversized fan and a round, around 30-meter-high tower. With a jumpsuit, i.e. a skydiving suit, you can experience weightlessness for a few minutes.

The fan, of course covered by an elastic net, is attached to the floor and creates an upward air flow. Now you can jump into the draft from the side of the all-round upholstered room. The jumpsuit fills with air and you float weightlessly in the air. With a little practice you can make spectacular figures such as somersaults.

Definitely fun that is not cheap (it starts at 75 USD per person) but is a real alternative to the classic parachute jump, especially for people with a fear of heights or flying. If you are planning to move here in this city you should go and check lake las vegas homes, for better resident.


Las Vegas is not only the Mecca for adventurers but also for those who are crazy about shopping. Should you actually win something in one of the casinos - don't worry, you will get rid of the money won very quickly. Along the strip in the casinos there are countless boutiques and shops where you can re-invest what you have won or saved. As a rule, however, you will only find high-priced designer shops and noble jewelers here.

Classic holiday shopping is best done somewhere else. The Fashion Show Mall at the north end of the strip offers over 250 different shops. Well-known brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Diesel or Levi's can be found here as well as the large American department stores (Macy's, Dillards, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue ...). In addition to the many shopping opportunities, there is a huge food court here that has something to offer for every taste.

However, Las Vegas also has the classic outlet centers that fill many vacationers' bags for their return journey. The two outlet centers are in the north and south of the city. The Las Vegas North Premium Outlets are close to downtown, accessible by car or with your own bus that commutes between the Strip and the Outlet Centre, while the Outlets Located near the airport right on the strip.

The northern outlets are open-air, which means that you are in the open air between the individual shops, while the shops in the southern outlets are completely covered. An argument for the southern shops, especially in the hot season. On the respective websites you can look at the overview of the shops in advance and then decide which one you want to visit. Regardless of whether you choose the northern or southern outlets, you can easily spend an entire day here. However, you have to be careful not to exceed the baggage allowance for the return flight with all the cheap offers and bargains.


You get a completely different perspective of the desert city in Nevada from the air. Dozens of helicopters take off from the helicopter terminal at the international airport every day to offer visitors a breathtaking view of the city lights. A sightseeing flight with Sundance Helicopters is particularly recommended. A limousine will pick you up from the hotel and bring you to the airport. After a short safety briefing, the modern helicopters set off.

You should definitely do the sightseeing flight after dark. Only then does Vegas shine in all its glory. The glowing neon signs and the lights of the big city shine in competition. With a little luck you will witness the water games in front of the Bellagio Hotel and see the dimensions of the metropolis from a completely different perspective. A unique experience.

Even if you've been to Las Vegas a dozen times, the impression from the air and at night is completely different. The flight takes around 15 minutes and costs $ 99 per person. Money well invested for breathtaking views of the city.
