Wheelchair Accessible Experiences in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is full of fun experiences and things to do. As one of the most visited cities in the U.S, it has become increasingly accessible to wheelchair users and those with disabilities. Let's take a look at some of the main attractions and activities you should put on your list when you visit this energetic city.

Explore the Vegas Strip

Let's be real, this is the main reason you're probably going. Las Vegas Boulevard, also known as the Vegas Strip, is the main street where most of the upscale hotels and casinos are, popular shows and entertainment, restaurants, and attractions. Tourists flock here to take in the sights of the beautiful buildings and sparkling lights and to begin their night out in Vegas. If you stay in one of the hotel resorts here, you won't ever have to leave the strip.

Is the Strip Wheelchair Accessible?

Yes it is! It is accessible to visitors with disabilities, as the sidewalks are wide and fairly smooth, so they can be navigated in a wheelchair or with a mobility aid. The resorts, casinos, and main attractions on the street are generally very accessible as well. However, be aware that the Strip can be quite crowded, especially during evenings and weekends.

The Bellagio Fountain

Located at one of the best resorts in the city, the Bellagio Resort on the Vegas strip has a massive musical fountain show in front of it. With dancing fountains, music, and lights, it is definitely worth a viewing. The show happens most days of the week and run every 15-30 minutes depending on which time of day it is. Plus, it's free!

Make sure to head inside the Bellagio Resort afterwards, as it is one of the best hotels in Vegas. Built in 1998, it was the most expensive hotel constructed up until that point. There is a beautiful art gallery with a vast amount of fine artwork that you can browse, as well as a massive 14,000 square foot Botanical Garden and Conservatory that is transformed based on the season. The Bellagio has over 120 staff members that tend to this beautiful arboretum year round, making it a must-see attraction.

Try a Vegas Buffet (they're so good)

One of the best parts about Las Vegas is the food. There are wild concoctions you can find around the city that are once in a lifetime experience. The buffets are one of the better parts of the food scene here, and you have a plethora of options to choose from. The Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan resort is worth a consideration, or the buffet at the Luxor.

Explore the Amazing Pools Around Vegas

The pool areas of Vegas are some of the coolest aspects of the hotels there, especially during the warmer months. If the accommodation you're staying at doesn't have a pool or isn't up to par, no worries! You can always buy a day-pass at various resorts and enjoy a day by the pool... perhaps with a cocktail in hand. You'll find poolside service with fantastic food, drinks, cabanas, and many more amenities. A majority of resorts have pool lifts available as well, so you can cool off during a hot afternoon.
