Las Vegas is a city that is known for its casinos, theater productions, and “Up all night,” vibe. But sometimes you need a break from the glitz of the city and need to find a spot to relax for a few hours. From outdoor activities to mouthwatering burger joints, here are a few low-key places to check out on your next visit.
1. Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs
If you are looking for a respite from the smoke-filled casinos where you can breathe in some quality air while surrounded by nature, then this is the spot for you. This grassy, tree-filled Park is home to several lakes, a variety of plant and animal life, a number of stocked ponds where guests can fish (though you need to obtain a license ahead of time), and is full of an abundance of birds and waterfowl. There are several paths that wander through the park and places where guests can enjoy a picnic along the way as well.
If you are in search of something a little different for your next meal, head on over to Fukuburger. This Japanese-influenced burger joint started out as a food truck on the strip and has now established itself as a stationary spot as well. The menu includes a twist on traditional burgers with the addition of Wasabi mayo, grilled shitake mushroom and pickled red ginger as options to add to your dish.
If you are looking for a great burger but want something a little more traditional, then grab a seat at Stripburger and enjoy a classic burger. This all-outdoor restaurant on the Strip offers up traditional meals as well as mini burger options. It is a great place to kick back and people watch on a sunny afternoon.
4. The Bourbon Room
If you are in search of the perfect location for a nightcap or a quick drink before a show, head over to the Bourbon Room. Located inside the Venetian this joint is inspired by the legendary Sunset Strip club from the Broadway musical “Rock of Ages.” Here guests are entertained by music from the 80s, with VJs spinning classic rock hits on the turntable and via video replay. Drinks are named after classic 80s hits, such as “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
