Las Vegas Attractions
While in Memphis, there is plenty to see and do.
Here are a few attractions you will not find elsewhere.
Located on the Strip, the High Roller is hard to miss at a formidable 550 feet (167 meters) tall ― beating out the London Eye as the biggest observation wheel in the world.
When you arrive, head into the waiting area where you can buy a drink to buy on board; beer wine and soft drinks are available.
Once you get in your luxurious, climate-controlled pod, sit back as you ascend into the sky. Survey the desert landscape as it shimmers day and night with neon lights and reflective buildings. During your ride, an amusing audio tour covers the history of Las Vegas, perfectly timed to point out the area’s landmarks as they appear during the rotation.
After you disembark, the adventure doesn’t have to be over. The High Roller puts you in the center of Las Vegas’ LINQ, a lively promenade featuring bars, shops and restaurants. Start by browsing the Sky Shop for some souvenirs of your time in the sky. Hungry? Hit Flour & Barley for some brick oven pizza and follow it up with a cupcake (or 2) at Sprinkles.
Whether you are a true Vegas high roller yourself and Sin City is your habitual vacation spot or you’ve traveled half the world to see the strip for the first time, you won’t be disappointed.
The Hoover Dam Visitor Center is open every day of the year except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The facility opens at 9:00 AM, and the first tour departs at 9:25 AM. The last tour departs at 3:55 PM and the facility closes at 5:00 PM.
Hoover Dam is located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas on US Highway 93. From Las Vegas go southeast on Interstate 515 that will turn into US Highway 93. Continue on Highway 93 until you reach the dam. A 459 vehicle parking garage is adjacent to the Visitor Center. The parking garage charges a $10.00 fee to park. Hoover Dam experiences thousands of visitors each day. This can create a shortage of parking spaces during the summer, holidays and weekends; therefore taking a bus tour from Las Vegas is recommended.
Admission Fees for Visitor’s Center and Power Plant
$15.00 per person; $12.00 per senior, military and children four to sixteen; children under four and military in uniform are free
Pets are not allowed anywhere on the site.

The Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center is an informational hub for visitors filled with indoor and outdoor exhibits, plant specimens from throughout the canyon, and live Desert Tortoise habitats.
