Top 4 Vegas Entertainment Suggestions

Looking for some ideas of what to do in Las Vegas? Here are four entertainment options (three shows and one museum) that I went to see during my trip in March. (Bonus: They’re family friendly.)
Please leave a comment and let me know your top Vegas entertainment suggestions.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

Titanic Exhibition Store, Luxor

You’ll feel really close to this tragic event when viewing artifacts from the Titanic, stories of the ship and the people on board, and exploring the museum structure, which is a walk-through simulation of parts of the Titanic. Each admission ticket comes with a boarding pass with the name and class of one real-life passenger, so as you go through the museum you can see the type of room they would have stayed in and then at the end, you reach a board with the names of survivors and victims so you can tell if your passenger survived or not. This was a really interesting museum, and takes about two hours to go through if you read everything. For those who loved the movie, you will love the museum. For those who hated the movie: fear not – the museum is strictly about the real-life events, no Leo DiCaprio pictures present.
At the Luxor, open 10am to 10pm daily (last admit at 9pm). Pricing available online, discounts available for seniors, children, and locals. Discounted tickets also available from third-party sellers.

V – The Ultimate Variety Show

This was filled with comedy and amazing talent. I remember seeing a YouTube video of Wally Eastwood a long time ago, so it was fun to see him perform live as he hosted the show. A rotating cast makes this show different each time you see it. Highly recommend!
At Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile, shows nightly at 7pm and 8:30pm. Pricing available online. Discounted tickets also available from third-party sellers.

Jeff Civillico Comedy in Action

Juggling comedian, with plenty of physical humor, stunts, balancing tricks, and audience participation. A super entertaining and very funny performance from one of the youngest headliners on the Vegas strip.
At the Paris Las Vegas, shows at 7pm Wednesdays. Pricing available online. Discounted tickets also available from third-party sellers.

KA by Cirque du Soleil

Two royal twin siblings get separated when the rival fire nation attacks. KA is the story of the difficulties the twins face as they fight their way back to each other and take back control of their kingdom. You can expect acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts, tumbling clowns, pyrotechnics, and great music.
At the MGM Grand, shows Saturday through Wednesday at 7pm and 9:30pm (some exceptions, see site for details). Prices available online, children under 5 not allowed. Discounted tickets also available from third-party sellers.

This spring, I’m going to Las Vegas, NV with some friends (going to Vegas is on my list). Here’s the status of the trip so far:

Limits:

  • We don’t drink that much alcohol (I don’t like the taste of alcohol at all, so I don’t drink alcohol at all)
  • I don’t really want to gamble (it seems like a waste of money)
  • We want to save money (but still have fun)

Plans So Far:

  • Cirque du Soleil show (on my list)
  • Fremont Street Experience
  • Walk through the themed hotels and casinos
  • M&M’s World

Here’s where you come in:

What would you recommend we do?

Have you been to Vegas before? What did you enjoy? What would you avoid?

If you haven’t been yet, what would you want to see or do when you go? (or what have you heard of other people doing?)

Leave your thoughts in the comment section!
