Where to Get the Best Views of Las Vegas
It’s hard to deny that the glimmering lights of Las Vegas are some of the most beautiful sights to see in the middle of the desert. When you’re above the city, you can really appreciate our little oasis of excitement surrounded by a beautiful desert landscape and nearby mountains. It really is a view like no other! From observation towers to rooftop bars, see where to score some of the best views of the city.
Legacy Club Rooftop Bar
Legacy Club offers guests a stunning lookout point from 60 floors above Fremont Street, giving you a view of the Las Vegas Strip that you can’t really get while you’re on the Strip. Get cozy next to fire pits and sip on a craft cocktail on the outdoor terrace while you take in the lights of Downtown Las Vegas and the Strip all at once. The Las Vegas views are especially incredible here at night and when the sun is setting, so be sure to reserve your sunset spot.
Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck
The Viewing Deck at the Eiffel Tower Las Vegas offers one of the Best Views in all of Vegas, especially at night. Offering expansive views right across the city, the valley, and right down onto the fountains of the Bellagio. The skyline view is naturally split as the viewing deck on the tower is quite central, but there are great views both looking north and south, so combined you really get 360-degree views of Las Vegas and the surrounding area.
High Roller Observation Wheel
At 550 feet, the High Roller is the world’s largest observation wheel and one of the best places for a scenic view of the Las Vegas Strip. Located at the LINQ Promenade, the High Roller features air-conditioned pods that can hold dozens of people each, complete with TV screens, benches for seating, and some pods even have bars. The High Roller offers spectacular views at any time of the day, but the Las Vegas views are particularly enchanting at night.
The tallest structure in Las Vegas, the Strat Tower stands 1,149 feet tall with the SkyPod and observation deck at 869 feet in the sky. With views of both Las Vegas and the Valley, the Strat has indoor and outdoor viewing areas. If you’re wanting to pump up your adrenaline, check out the thrill rides at the top of the tower. The best views of Las Vegas might just be the ones you see when teetering off the edge of the building, they’ll literally take your breath away!
Where can you find massive dance floors, killer beats, and expansive views of the Strip? A trendy Las Vegas rooftop nightclub of course! Drai’s Nightclub on the Strip is one of the most famous spots in the city that boasts a calendar full of the hottest live performers, luxury bottle service, and an outdoor rooftop lounge so you can party under the stars and get an incredible view of the city below you – almost as if the lights are twinkling with the music.

While it may feel a little indulgent, a helicopter tour of the Strip is actually pretty affordable in Las Vegas, especially for an experience like no other. From as little as $94 you can take to the skies and get the most incredible views you can imagine. These are short flights that take only 12-15 minutes of flight time, but that is all it takes to soar down the strip and soak in the stunning skyline of the amazing city from the best possible vantage point.
If you’re up for a bit of adventure to get a view, consider this short (but hard) 4.4-mile hike to the top of Frenchman Mountain. The trailhead starts on East Lake Mead Road and takes you up 2000ft of elevation to the summit of the mountain that offers more stunning views of the city. Along with amazing skyline views, you get views of the whole Las Vegas Valley, Mount Charleston, the Spring Mountains, the Mojave desert, and glimpses of Lake Mead.
Whether you’re enjoying Las Vegas from the ground or from above, you’re sure to have a great time marveling at the city. Book your room at Circa Resort Las Vegas to be immersed in the excitement of Downtown Las Vegas while having one of the most incredible Las Vegas views from above!
