6. Save Money With a Tourist Pass

If you’re planning to visit a lot of attractions, take more than one tour, or enjoy multiple shows while in Las Vegas, a tourist pass could save you 50% or more.

There are three different types of this service available in Sin City: all-inclusive, flex pass, and build-your-own pass.

This allows you to save a few bucks even if you don’t want to get carried away.

If you’re not interested in a lot of different shows or activities, building your own pass is probably your best bet.

However, if you plan to visit at least 4-5 attractions, an all-inclusive pass will most likely provide the best value.

This option includes admission to dozens of tours, shows, and popular locations for a specific amount of time (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days).

Finally, the flex pass allows you to pay one flat price for a set number of activities (3, 4, 5, or 7).

While this is a great option for expensive attractions, the build-your-own pass would be better for services that are already somewhat affordable.

Here are a few of the best attractions and tours included with these tourist passes:

  • Hop on Hop off Bus Tour | $49
  • Grand Canyon Day Trip | $160
  • Las Vegas Helicopter Tour | $124
  • Richard Petty Driving Experience | $150
  • Criss Angel Mindfreak | $120
  • Hoover Dam Tour | $60
  • Blue Man Group | $150
  • Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. | $39
  • Madame Tussauds | $30
  • The Mentalist | $67
  • And more!

No matter which type of pass you choose, you’ll probably be able to save at least 20% - 50% off on tickets for various popular activities.

8. Visit America's First Permanent Punk Rock Museum

You'll find such items as Devo's energy dome helmets, Debbie Harry's Vultures shirt, and interactive exhibits that include musical instruments.

It will also share the story of punk, and explain how it's impacted future generations of musicians.

All of this can be found at 1422 Western Avenue, not far from The Strip.
