Things To Do at and Near Paris Las Vegas

When it comes to themed properties in Las Vegas, few compare to Paris. That theming is immediately evident on the exterior of the property, which boasts a mock Eiffel Tower, Arc du Triomphe, and Parisian facade.

When you walk through the front door, you’re greeted by a simulated blue sky, elaborate bridges overhead, and even cobblestone walkways.

In a city that’s slowly divorcing from themes, Paris stands strong.

While gawking at the resort is my favorite thing to do, I thought it would be fun to point out the other itinerary-worthy activities that exist at and near Paris.

Itinerary Ideas at Paris

Montecristo Cigar Lounge: The space that was once home to Napoleon’s Lounge has transitioned into a cigar lounge that boasts a walk-in humidor, craft cocktails, an oversized LED TV wall, and bartop gaming.

See a Free Live Music Show: Le Cabaret, a bar found just off the casino floor at Paris, commonly hosts free live music and free shows like “La Femme” and “The Red Show” on Friday and Saturday nights.

Grab Dinner in the Eiffel Tower: Dine perched 1/3rd of the way up Paris’ replica Eiffel Tower overlooking the Bellagio Fountains and surrounding Strip. As an upscale dining option, plan to spend $60-$80 on dinner entrees and $20-$30 for appetizers – View the full menu here.

Make sure you select a window table when making reservations online. While a seat with a view costs $40 more, it’s worth it.

Take in a Great View from the Eiffel Tower Observation Deck: There are few ways to better take in the splendor of the Las Vegas Strip than from the Viewing Deck 46 stories up at Paris’ 1/2 scale replica Eiffel Tower.

I recently visited the Eiffel Tower Observation Deck for the first time and kicked myself for not doing it sooner.

Enjoy the Eiffel Tower Free Light Show: Every half hour from sunset to midnight, Paris’ replica Eiffel Tower puts on a dazzling, choreographed show with over 1,000 light fixtures.

Grab a drink at CVS and post up outside Paris to catch one of the newest free shows in Vegas.

Grab a Beer at Beer Park: Full disclosure, they tack a “concession and franchise fee” of 4.85% onto every bill.

It’s a cash grab, and customers recieve nothing in exchange for it. I suggest asking to have it removed as some have reported success in the past.

If you can get past the fee, the rooftop view of the Strip and Bellagio fountains at Beer Park is legit. A 16 oz Budweiser will set you back $8.75, but there are few things I enjoy more than sitting on the rail watching the fountains dance.

Bottomless Mimosas at Alexxa’s: One of my personal favorite things to do (besides gambling of course) is grabbing bottomless mimosas at Alexxa’s with brunch to aid in recovering from the previous night.

Bottomless mimosas are available daily into the afternoon for $30 per person.

Relax at Paris’ Soleil Pool: A rooftop pool experience, the Soleil pool deck is wedged between Paris’ hotel tower and their replica Eiffel Tower offering views of surrounding resorts on the Strip.

If you’re in the mood for an upscale buffet experience, spend up for either the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace or Wicked Spoon at Cosmopolitan.

Both are widely considered to be among the best buffets in Vegas and serve unique, high-end food options that you’ll never find at the Golden Corral back home.

After dinner, stop into one of 3 unique speakeasy experiences at The Cosmopolitan, which includes Ghost Donkey, The Ski Lodge, and The Barbershop!

Of the three, my personal favorite is The Ski Lodge, as it instantly transports you to a snowy mountain retreat and the bartenders were absurdly fun.

Next door, the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood offer a plethora of cheap food and drink deals. In fact, bars and restaurants in the Miracle Mile make up a solid chunk of my guide to finding happy hours on the Strip.

Easily the best value is the $20 all-you-can-drink deal at Blondies, available on weekdays from 3 pm – 6 pm.

Grab lunch at Ocean One as everything on the menu is a mere $5.99. No, it’s not upscale, but the portions and quality are good for the price point!

Paris is connected to Horseshoe via an indoor walkway and once there you can play Twilight Zone themed mini-golf or check out Real Bodies, an exhibit that displays real human specimens.

Horseshoe is also home to The Lock, a speakeasy within the Cabinet of Curiosities cocktail lounge.

While the entrance is obvious (pictured below), The Lock makes you solve a puzzle to get in which I found to be embarrassingly challenging.

Adrenaline junkies should head to the LINQ Promenade to experience FlyLINQ, a zipline that sends riders flying over the pedestrian mall below at heights of 140+ feet.

I recently faced my fears and tackled FlyLINQ – See my review!

Lastly, hitting up the neighborhood free shows is a must. Both the Fountains outside of Bellagio and the nightly Volcano eruption at Mirage are can’t miss attractions.

As you can tell, it’s tough to be bored at or near Paris, as the resort’s center-Strip location puts you smack dab in the middle of the action.
