Everyone should go to Las Vegas at least once, whether you're a gambler, a fan of glitz and glamour, or seeking experiences that are more low-key and off the beaten path. Even the famed Las Vegas strip has hidden sights, unique experiences and delicious food options.

Dining in Las Vegas

High profile restaurants in L.A., New York City, Napa Valley and elsewhere have Vegas locations, and many are located within casinos, making getting there part of the fun.

Eggslut, Milk Bar and Jaleo by Jose Andres can be found in The Cosmopolitan, as can é by José Andrés, an intimate private dining experience. Cronut magnate Dominique Ansel has an outpost at Caesar’s Palace. French Laundry chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery are in the Venetian. Off the strip, check out Randy’s Donuts (a Los Angeles transplant,) and visit Take it Easy Roasters in Las Vegas’ Chinatown for coffee and Colombian pastries.

Art in Las Vegas

Beyond the Las Vegas Strip's glowing neon you’ll find public art, displayed collections and in-the-know, funky experiences.

ARIA's public fine art collection includes works by James Turrell, Sanford Biggers, Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, and many other contemporary artists.

It’s worth getting a rental car to explore Las Vegas off the strip. The stacked, brightly colored rocks of Ugo Rondindone’s “Seven Magic Mountains” sculpture is a desert installation located just out of town. Travelers of all ages can enjoy the Ethel M. Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Garden, the world's largest cactus garden. Swing through the Arts District in Downtown Las Vegas for a stop at The Writer’s Block, and indie bookstore with a striking, plant-filled interior.

Immerse yourself in another world at Area 51 and Omega Mart, Meow Wolf’s Las Vegas portal. Set up as an uncanny, quirky supermarket theme, Omega Mart “customers” can peruse the shelves for — and purchase — product packing objects like Pigeon Mousse for Cats, Rumored Associates Muslii and Honey Clumps of Hmmm, Who Told You This Was Butter? and more.

Visitors with more time to spare can take in Las Vegas’ natural beauty, including its proximity to the Hoover Dam, and charming small towns like Boulder City.


Whether you spend your time on the Las Vegas Strip, off the strip, further afield or a mix of all three, Las Vegas has plenty of things to offer for both gamblers and non-gamblers, and travelers of many interests!

I’m interested in a place to visit for a day trip from Houston, with family-friendly things to do that aren’t solely focused on young children. We enjoy good food, scenery and learning about local history.

Our Answer:

Corsicana is a great option for you and your family! Located in Central Texas, approximately 2.5 hours from Houston and a straight shot down I-45, Corsicana has a charming and walkable downtown with restaurants and coffee options; an arts bookstore and a comics store, and a brand-new park to explore.

Corsicana also holds an important place in Texas history. You may know about the famous Corsicana fruitcake and the the Collin Street Bakery, but did you also know that the recipe for Wolf Brand Chili was developed there in 1895, by a 12-year old named Lyman Davis?

If you are looking for some scenery with your history, the newly opened GW Jackson Park is a beautiful, public green space that is part of the GW Jackson Multicultural Society, named for a revered local educator and principal. The society collects and preserves the contributions of African Americans in the Corsicana community.

Visit the park and see Jackson’s statue as part of the self-guided Corsicana Bronze Statue Tour, located in and around downtown. See statues that honor Jimmy Grimmett of Collin Street Bakery, Kaiser Bill, the canine inspiration behind Wolf Brand Chili, musician William Orville “Lefty” Frizzell and Jose Antonio Navarro, a Texas Founding Father and the county’s namesake, along with many others.

Happy road tripping and enjoy the journey!
