The most breathtaking views in Las Vegas

When people think of Las Vegas, the neon lights always come to mind immediately, and with good reason. The Entertainment Capital of the World isn't short on glitz and glamour, to be sure.

But there are spectacular views throughout the city that many people don't know about, and are perfect for taking pictures, or just taking it all in.

Here are a handful of spots worth making part of your visit. Don't forget your camera!

High Roller

ON THE STRIP VIEWS: The views from elevated clubs with outdoor patios are unparalleled, whether it's day or night.You'll find plenty of amazing views as well, from such hot spots as the Mandarin Bar at Mandarin Oriental, the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay and Drai's Nightclub at The Cromwell. The High Roller observation wheel (above) at The LINQ also offers several incredible vantage points.

Ghostbar

OFF-STRIP VIEWS FROM ROOFTOP NIGHTCLUBS OR RESTAURANTS: You'll find plenty of amazing views as well from hot spots off of the Strip, such as Ghostbar at the Palms (above), with its inspiring sightline from more than 50 stories high.

VooDoo Lounge

The Voodoo Lounge (above) at the Rio is a fantastic place to gaze at the Strip, and the Observation Deck at the Stratosphere provides a 360-degree view of Vegas like no other. You can also enjoy the view from above inside at Level 107 Lounge.

Valley of Fire

SCENIC BEAUTY: Just on the outskirts of Las Vegas are some true scenic wonders. Valley of Fire State Park (above) derives its name from the spectacular red sandstone formations and makes for some picturesque hiking and picnicking. More hiking, cycling and horseback riding with a gorgeous backdrop can be found at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, and Las Vegas is also nearby Mount Charleston Recreation Area, perfect for camping and enjoying majestic views.

No matter what visually inspires you, you are sure to find the picture-perfect spot in Las Vegas.

Get up close and personal during International UFC Fight Week

Here's your chance to step into the world of UFC, but without actually getting into The Octagon. You'll still get up close and personal with your favorite mixed martial arts stars when UFC International Fight Week returns to Las Vegas July 7-12!

UFC International Fight Week

It's a weeklong celebration filled with meet and greets, autograph signings, the UFC 189 weigh-in and much more! The gloves come off at the UFC Fan Expo at the Sands Convention Center at The Venetian/The Palazzo on July 10-11. It's the ultimate fan experience and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rub elbows with the top names in the sport. Two-day tickets are available as well as individual day passes.

The Ulti-man 5k race returns July 11, starting on Fremont Street Experience in the heart of downtown Las Vegas. The event welcomes runners and walkers of all fitness levels and ages to help raise funds in support of Three Square Food Bank.

UFC International Fight Week concerts

Other events that take place during UFC International Fight Week include the UFC Gym Fitness Challenge, pool parties hosted by the Octagon Girls, free concerts and tournaments. 

Cap the weekend with UFC 189: McGregor vs. Aldo at MGM Grand. Ireland's Conor McGregor gets the opportunity to face the best featherweight of all-time, Jose Aldo, in a fight that fans have been clamoring to see. Plus, Robbie Lawler defends his UFC welterweight crown against Rory MacDonald.

 

This weekend's events really pack a punch

Much like the fight itself, there's a huge buzz all around Las Vegas this weekend. You don't have to sit ringside, or even be in the arena, to be a part of the excitement when when Floyd Mayweather battles Manny Pacquiao.

Of course, there's plenty to do in Las Vegas before and after the main event. Check out this list of concerts, after parties, pre-parties and more, or scroll through our full weekend lineup.
