Known as the entertainment capital, Las Vegas is a 24-hour city offering everything you could want in a vacation; sun and sand at Mandalay Bay Beach, the world’s tallest Ferris wheel, extravagant nightclubs, and regularly occurring concerts. In addition to becoming an adult playground and a food lover’s dream destination, the legalization of cannabis has opened the door for Sin City to become a mecca for Cannabis Tourism.
While it is still illegal to make use of cannabis in public, the recreational market for marijuana products and the businesses that cater to its enthusiasts is booming. ― If you are going to be in Las Vegas, here are a list of tips for the best cannabis shops and places to experience in the valley:
Where to Buy Cannabis

Shows, clubs, restaurants, and cocktails in Sin City often come at a premium price. If you are in town to visit your favorite dispensary and want to kick back and have fun without dropping hundreds of dollars, you are in luck. Here is a list of activities that provide hours of entertainment without the huge price tag:
Fremont Street is in the heart of downtown Las Vegas. From the Rat Pack and Binion’s Horseshoe to the original Post Office that houses the Mob Museum, this is where it all began. The Fremont Street Experience is one of the best parties in town. A 90-foot high video canopy covers this five-block pedestrian mall. With millions of LED lights, this impressive sight displays videos, ads, and light shows. Surrounded by casinos, restaurants, and activities, you can soak up the atmosphere.
The canopy is not the only attraction of downtown. This 1,500-foot section of Fremont Street is ideal for taking in a free concert and people watching. As you wander along the pedestrian-only stretch, you may see magic tricks and get your picture taken with Star Wars characters. Cover bands play concerts on three stages and rotate weekly, while buskers perform on every block. There is also the occasional dominatrix, hula girls wearing nothing but grass skirts, and old guy wearing a diaper smoking a cigar. This is Vegas. Anything is possible.
People-watching on The Strip is almost as entertaining as downtown, but there are also free activities here that cannot be beaten.
- The waterworks show in front of the Bellagio features fountains that shoot more than 400 feet in the air, timed to music and lights for a mesmerizing event.
- The Volcano at the Mirage has scorching heat, flames, and explosions that rock that block.
- The Fall of Atlantis is at the heart of Caesar’s Forum Shops. Grab a cocktail and enjoy the special effects, nine-foot animatronic talking statues, and fireballs.
There are tons of shows and activities that are entertaining without breaking the bank.
- Planet Hollywood and downtown casinos with smaller venues host shows like Zombie Burlesque, Marriage Can Be Murder dinner theater and stand-up comedy.
- The Stratosphere has the tallest freestanding observation tower in the US. Whether you go to the observation deck and take in a 360-degree view of the city, try one of the rides at the top, or have a cocktail in the rotating restaurant and lounge, it is an experience you should not miss.
- Skydiving takes getting high to a whole new level. There are several companies on The Strip, but Skydive Las Vegas is about 30 minutes out of town, and claim to take you higher than anyone else.
Cannabis Accommodations in Las Vegas
According to Nevada law, cannabis products can only be consumed in private, which means you could get fined if caught enjoying a smoke in your hotel room. Thankfully, there is a multitude of other lodging options offered by hosts that appreciate the greener things in life. Herbology Tours, Bud and Breakfast, Cannabis Tours and GreenTripz can help you find cozy high-rise apartments, luxury homes with private swimming pools and hotels that provide 420-friendly accommodations.
Driving while under the influence of cannabis is just as illegal as drunk driving. Obtaining lodging within walking distance of the activities you want to enjoy is the easiest way to get around. If that isn’t an option, take advantage of the alternative modes of transportation to avoid the chance of getting pulled over and having an entirely different Las Vegas experience.
Distances can be deceiving here. Even if you are only going from one casino to another, it could be several miles. The Las Vegas Monorail runs from the MGM Grand to the SLS Las Vegas at the north end of The Strip. It makes seven stops, including The LINQ and the Westgate. Single and multi-day unlimited ride passes are available, so you can see more and walk less.
