It’s Sin City. Why not go a little crazy? Traveling Las Vegas style has never been simpler. Limos line the strip and helicopters soar through the air – all on an hourly rate. From a $3000 cocktail, a truffle oil hamburger, or a meal served hundreds of feet from the ground - Las Vegas’ adventures are sure to whet your appetite.

Las Vegas Speedway

In Las Vegas, whatever you do has to be done right no matter where you are going – even down the road to see a NASCAR race. Las Vegas Motor Speedway will seem a lot closer if you’re traveling with a helicopter from Maverick, a company that drops off and picks up at the racetrack’s landing pad for a mere $500 per person. The VIP experience will get you into the motorway even faster than before with enough time to catch those premium seats you secured.

To complete the trip to the Speedway in true VIP fashion, book a luxury suite on the track. Apart from the sheer satisfaction of staying in a box area all your own, the suites includes a wet bar, refrigerator, coffee maker, private restrooms, furnished tables and a drink rail.

Helicopter Ride

Maverick doesn’t just soar with NASCAR – sipping champagne 3500 feet below the rim in the Grand Canyon is another option. Among the various helicopter rides taking flight throughout Nevada, the Dream Catcher Sunset Tour takes patrons deep into the heart of the Grand Canyon in a few hours time. Enjoy a few treats within the Hualapai Indian Territory, just 300 feet above the Colorado River, following a visit to Hidden Valley and the Valley of Fire. The evening adventure isn’t complete without a sunset landscape of the neon lights of Bellagio, Luxor and Paris Paris.

Indoor Skydiving

Daredevils might be impressed with a flight straight to the cavernous pits of the Grand Canyon, but anyone with a fear of heights knows that’s a risk they aren’t willing to take. Accelerate your heart rate a few feet from the ground with Vegas Indoor Skydiving, an indoor wind tunnel that simulates the plummet from a plane. Flights can be purchased per individual session or in packs of five with instruction for a slimming $250 at America’s first indoor skydiving site.

Bottle Service

Any seasoned sinner knows that hitting up the nightclubs in Las Vegas is where the majority of the magic happens. No absurdly luxurious weekend spent among the desert allies can compare to an evening at the Wynn’s Tryst. Aside from the 90 foot waterfall dropping into a secluded lagoon that centers the dance floor, the prized nightclub is photographed for its celebrity clientele and known along the strip as the preferred hip-hop dance floor. Bottle services here start around $450 for every three people, but it’s a small price to pay for a true Tryst experience.

$3000 Cocktail

To truly indulge at Las Vegas’ premiere nightclub Tryst, switch up your bottle service for a Ménage a Trois. The cocktail that’ll spice up your evening features Cristal Rosa, Hennessy Ellipse, Grand Marnier Center-cinquantenaire, 23-karat gold flakes and a liquid gold syrup. A signature of the hotel, the Ménage a Trois isn’t complete without its 9 point diamond studded gold straw that you can bet will come to use in the future. The price tag is just a bit more than a simple bottle at your table – at $3,000 – but what happens here, stays here.

Dining in the Sky

Aerial views over the Grand Canyon are one thing, but enjoying a five course meal floating 180 feet above ground is another. It is clear that anything is possible when the Eiffel Tower is across from the world’s most recognized water show, particularly with Dinner in the Sky. The flying dining experience straps 22 guests to a floating platform that shuffles a few waiters serving champagne, steak and sushi. For just under $300, it’s pocket change for a meal and a breezy view of the strip.

Fleurburger 5000

Herbert Keller might have gotten commercial exposure with his appearance on Top Chef Masters, but the Keller of Fleur de Lys was famous long before Hollywood. Renowned for his modern approach to traditional French food, Keller brought the excessive lifestyle of Las Vegans to his menu with the Fleurburger 5000. The catchy nametag also comes with a catchy price tag – the dinner for two includes his famous Rossini burger of Kobe beef, foie gras, black truffles and truffle sauce on a brioche truffle bun topped off with a bottle 1990 Chateau Petrus. For $5000, it’s a steal.
