There’s a lot to look at in Las Vegas. We’ve got flashing neon, glittering lights, stunning desert sunsets and majestic mountains.
The best way to take in the Las Vegas views is usually from high above the Strip and we’ve put together a list of the 12 best views in Las Vegas.
Get above it all and get those Instagram-worthy shots of Las Vegas at these spots.
