There are many things to do while hanging out in Las Vegas.

If you are planning to move to the Las Vegas area, it is likely you are also considering the many sights and amenities available in the city. While there are plenty of casinos and other notable options for fun, there may be some things you didn't know existed. There's plenty to do in the city, and some of the options on this list may interest you. It could make setting up a date for your moving company to come take your moving containers that much easier.

The Boneyard at the Neon Museum
Las Vegas has plenty of history, and if you are looking to learn more about it, it may be a good idea to check out the Neon Museum. According to The Los Angeles Times, this venue allows you to look at old signs from the Strip's past, as well as a number of other signs from different parts of Nevada. There is an ability to get a brochure to help you tour the area, and there is no cost to check out the museum.

Shark Reef Aquarium
It may seem out of place in the desert, but another spot that could be fun, especially for those that love nature and the ocean, is the Shark Reef Aquarium. This is located at Mandalay Bay, and according to Time Magazine, admission costs less than $20. There are a number of animals here other than sharks, including turtles, komodo dragons and crocodiles. The venue has exhibits both on the inside and outside of the building, which could make it even more fun. This may be a bit different than much of your Las Vegas experience, and could be a good idea as a break from the Strip itself.

Sunbelt Classic and Antique Auto Museum
If you are a car enthusiast, then there may be a location that is high on your list when in Las Vegas. The city is the home of the Sunbelt Classic and Antique Auto Museum. According to The Los Angeles Times, this museum has more than 300 old vehicles located inside, and all of them are restored to original condition. There is a stipulation with this venue, as you will need to call in advance to set up a tour. Sometimes, there is an ability to join an already planned tour by calling ahead. Another benefit is that there is no cost to see the models.

Stratosphere
Whether you like tall buildings, amusement parks or both, there might be a perfect location for you in Las Vegas. The state's tallest building is located in Las Vegas, and there is plenty to do at the Stratosphere. This location has three large amusement rides that may not be for the faint of heart, according to Time Out Las Vegas. If you venture down here, you may want to try out Insanity: The Ride. If that doesn't do it for you, there are two other options including the Big Shot and X Scream.

Bellagio Fountains
One of the most notable fixtures of the city is located right on the Strip. There are many things going on, but one you may not want to miss is the Bellagio Fountains. According to Time Magazine, this location is quite notable, as it has more than 1,000 fountains that shoot out of the lake next to this hotel. These go off everyday in the afternoon and night, and you can see the fountains every 15 or 30 minutes during that period. Just to get an idea of how big this show is, there are more than 8 acres of lake filled with these fountains.
