A Side of Vegas You May Not Have Seen

If you’re making the trip to Las Vegas for Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW), we want you to have the best trip possible. Of course, your primary goal for this trip is business, at least that’s our goal, but don’t forget to take some time off and enjoy the City of Lights while you’re there. If you want to get the lowdown on AAIW specifically check out this. If you want some ideas on things to do that are completely unrelated to the automotive aftermarket or work then keep reading.

After the show floor closes, before you make a beeline to the blackjack table, think about doing something a little unconventional. Deciding what to do with what precious time you do have can be overwhelming in Vegas but here are some of our favorite — and slightly unconventional — things to do.

Visit the Neon Museum

The Neon Museum is a history lesson from Las Vegas’ past. The vintage signs take up close to six acres of space.

Swim with the Sharks

The Shark Reef is a full-sized aquarium that bills itself as “North America’s only predator-based aquarium. It features rare killers including crocodiles, moray eels, jellyfish, piranhas and over 15 species of sharks. You have to be a certified diver to take a dip, but you can watch someone else risk life and limb.

BBQ at Ellis Island

A small little casino, not far from the strip, offers some of the best BBQ Las Vegas has to offer. Beer is also brewed on site is claimed to be a sweet ambrosia the will make you want to stay.

Zombie Apocalypse Store

A visit to the Zombie Apocalypse is a no-brainer. This little store contains everything you need to protect yourself from those walkers. It also has some novelty items for the non-diehards.

High Roller Ferris Wheel

This ferris wheel is the tallest observation wheel in the world. From a romantic date to an incredible view, it will not disappoint.

Buffet at the M Resort

You’re going to buffet while you’re in Vegas, just accept that as fact. Here’s the one you have to try: Studio B Buffet at M Resort. Sure, it’s a little out of the way but it’s so good, you won’t mind much.

See the MGM Lions

After you enjoy the M Resort’s buffet, make sure to visit the Lion Habitat Ranch about a minute away. This is where all those MGM Grand lions go when they retire.

We'd love to see what you get up to while you're at #AAPEX15 and #SEMA2015. We can't believe it's less than four days away! Share your photos with us using the hashtag: #NOLNinVegas15
