Las Vegas knows how to go big – especially when it comes to entertainment. So it should come as no surprise that a performance company like Cirque du Soleil thrives here. Translating to "Circus of the Sun," Cirque du Soleil is known for its incredible acrobatic feats, which are performed with an unrivaled level of artistry.

Cirque du Soleil's performances are inspired by a variety of natural and cultural elements. For example, the "LOVE" show (performed at The Mirage) pays tribute to the legendary rock band, the Beatles; meanwhile "O" (which can be seen at the Bellagio) has water playing a crucial role in the performance. Other Cirque du Soleil performances around town include "Michael Jackson ONE" at Mandalay Bay, "Mystère" at Treasure Island, "Zumanity" at New York-New York, "Criss Angel MINDFREAK LIVE!" at the Luxor and "KÀ" at the MGM Grand.

A Cirque du Soleil performance is something that can be enjoyed by viewers of all ages. Tickets can be pretty expensive, but travelers say a good seat is worth the price. Prices and showtimes vary by date, performance and venue. To learn more about the shows in Las Vegas, visit the Cirque du Soleil website.

#1 The Strip

Once you pass the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign along Las Vegas Boulevard South, it won't be too long until you're cruising the Strip. Sin City's notorious artery acts as the epicenter of any Vegas getaway. Here you'll find Las Vegas' most iconic landmarks, including the Bellagio Fountains, the Eiffel Tower at Paris, Las Vegas, the pyramid and sphinx belonging to The Luxor and The Venetian's Grand Canal

The "Strip" technically runs from Mandalay Bay on the south end (home to an aquarium and a man-made beach) to the Stratosphere casino on the north end, where you'll find the tallest free-standing observation tower in the country (this is where you'll go for the perfect Vegas photo).
