You can do anything here -- if the mind can imagine it, the wallet can support it, and the law allows it, you can do it in Las Vegas.

But take precautions and pace yourself. Too many people treat a long weekend in Vegas as a sprint, but it's a marathon. If you're going to make it to the finish line still standing, maybe don't try to go full Vegas in the first 15 minutes after your plane lands.

Las Vegas is a city full of surprises. Sure, there are all the shows and the celebrity chef restaurants and super clubs, but there is also an abundance of unique cultural attractions -- from only-in-Vegas museums to an exquisite performing arts center -- as well as excellent restaurants in the neighborhoods as good as anything on the Strip, a burgeoning craft beer and spirits industry, and incredibly easy access to some of the best terrain for outdoors enthusiasts anywhere in the country.

Simply put, Vegas is as Vegas does: it can be anything you want it to be.

The Strip's rebellious little sister

Vegas is way more than the Strip. In fact, the truly interesting developments have happened downtown, where speakeasies, cool antique shops, museums, Burning Man installations, tech companies, moonshine distilleries, and residential communities (complete with tiny houses, Airstreams, and yes, llamas) have transformed the area into a thriving cultural center. Welcome to the art-driven, gritty, and magical place known as Downtown Las Vegas.
