Sweeten Your Trip With Hershey’s Chocolate World
Two floors filled with over 800 types of Hershey’s. Have you gone to heaven? No, you’re just in Hershey’s Chocolate World. Chocolate bars, syrup bottles, chocolate dispensers, freshly made baked goods and basically everything you could wish for is ALL in this one building. If copious amounts of chocolate doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, then maybe starring in your own Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup advert might be more your thing. It’s probably not too often that you get a photo opportunity with a Statue of Liberty replica made from Hershey’s Milk Chocolate or a replica of the Empire State Building made from 1,800 Hershey’s bars, so you might want to take this chance while it’s here.
Take a Relaxing Gondola Ride at The Venetian
Las Vegas is full of energy and action, so take a break and float down the Grand Canal at The Venetian in an authentic gondola. Step into Venice without having to walk anywhere; slowly glide through the indoor lagoon and see the Venetian streets, traditional Italian-inspired architecture and if you’re lucky, you might be blessed with the gift of a sweet song from your personal Gondolier. The ride lasts around 15 minutes, so it’s easy to squeeze this peaceful activity into your Vegas adventure.
Let Your Hair Loose at Wet ‘N’ Wild
If the gondola ride is too tame for your liking, let your hair loose and go crazy at Wet ‘N’ Wild. There are over 25 slides and rides; ranging from a funnel that flings you through the air into a splash pool, to a flume which carries a raft full of people sliding around twists and turns. However, if the gondolas were more your cup of tea, there’s also a lazy river where you can once again relax and float on by. Perfect for a sunny day, there are private cabanas to unwind and enjoy the sun or cool yourself in the shade.
