Welcome to Las Vegas–Seeing the Sights


Going to CES 2016? Check out some of the sights while you're there.



Paris Las Vegas opened in 1999. Originally, its iconic Eiffel Tower replica was supposed to be built to scale, but because of its proximity to McCarran International Airport, it ended up at half the size of France’s beloved landmark.



Caesars Palace opened its doors in 1966 and was designed to romanticize the era of the Roman Empire. It has 18 fountains on-site, including the Goddess of Victory, pictured here. And, no, the real Caesar doesn’t live there.


Ferris Wheel

The High Roller is the world’s tallest ferris wheel, towering 550 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. The ride takes 30 minutes to go all the way around.


Hoover Dam

Built between 1931 and 1935, the Hoover Dam straddles Arizona and Nevada and sits on the Colorado River, generating power for California, Nevada and Arizona. The dam is 726 feet tall and is 42 miles away from the Las Vegas strip.



When the Mirage was constructed in 1989, it was the most expensive hotel/casino ever and is sprawled over 100,000 square feet. The Mirage is said to have been the launch of the tourism boom in Las Vegas.
