Best Places to See the City Lights in Las Vegas

Lori Ballen, the owner of this website, benefits from purchases made through her affiliate links.

Flying above the city of Las Vegas, approaching Mccarran National Airport, is one of the best views of the lights of the Las Vegas strip, but if you’re not in travel mode, there are several other locales around the city where you can capture a glimpse of the glitz and glitter of the dazzling Las Vegas skyline.

There are more than 15 miles of neon, over 9 million lights, and brilliant natural sunsets for you to view in the Las Vegas Valley. Check out some of the best places to see the city lights in Las Vegas.

The Observation Wheel

High Roller

In April of 2014, the world’s largest Ferris Wheel, also called the Observation Wheel and High Roller, opened to the public.

550 feet above the Las Vegas skyline, this ride is the star of the show in the Linq, a collection of shops, restaurants, and attractions brought to you by Caesars Entertainment Corporation.

The $25-$35 ride in the High Roller is a 30-minute route with some serious wow factor. When you opt to participate after sunset, this is, by far, one of the most awe-inspiring views of the Las Vegas strip.

The Observation Deck

Stratosphere Observation desk

The Observation Deck at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas offers 360-degree views of Sin City. At 1,149 feet, Stratosphere’s Observation Deck is the tallest freestanding observation deck in the country.

For indoor, air-conditioned comfort, the observation deck is enclosed with floor-to-ceiling glass. But for the outdoor enthusiast, the photographer in your household, and the brave at heart, the outdoor observation deck is equipped with viewfinders. And, if you’re aiming to impress, you can rent the Observation Deck for private parties of up to two-thousand guests.

The VooDoo Lounge

If you want to get a little fancier or funky with your uptown view of the city of lights, you can boogie all night long at the VooDoo Lounge at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. You can eat, drink, and be merry 51 stories high where you become a part of the Las Vegas skyline. Flair bartenders and a live dynamic DJ shake and stir the fun for hours.

The Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower Las Vegas

Las Vegas is proud of its replica of Paris’s Eiffel Tower, considered to be one of the most romantic places in Las Vegas. The Eiffel Tower replica in Las Vegas offers skyline views 46 stories above ground level, including an observation deck with 360-degree views, and a glass elevator taking you 460 feet up in the air.

The Skyfall Lounge

The Skyfall Lounge at Delano, Las Vegas, adjacent to Rivea, offers a 180-degree view of Las Vegas lights in an atmosphere that increases its energy as the night evolves. Sounds begin slow and low, and then the tempo increases as the night goes on towards dawn.

Fremont Street

Fremont Street Experience

If you’d rather be a part of the action instead of observing from above it all, you’ll want to visit the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas. At Fremont Street Experience, you’ll witness a Viva Vision light show like none you’ve ever seen before. Surrounded by vendors, entertainers, and shops, everything seemingly stops when the lights begin to glow.

Red Rock Canyon

And then, there are the natural wonders, lights designed by nature. Las Vegas offers amazing sunsets and starry nights. For the best sunset and starlit views, check out Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon is 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip and offers 195,819 acres of awe-inspiring views, especially during sunset.
