Five Virtual Vegas Must-Sees

Overview Las Vegas is the home of CES, and we are missing the energy of the city where, for years, we’ve witnessed life-changing innovations. But Las Vegas is letting us bring the spirit of the city to our homes.



CES® 2021 will be an all-digital experience, but we can’t imagine it without a touch of Las Vegas.

As the world puts travel and indoor entertainment at a standstill amidst the coronavirus outbreak, Las Vegas attractions and some of its landmark events are still available for worldwide enjoyment — through a screen.

The city is finding innovative ways to stay connected with its visitors and entertain us with reimagined versions of its most beloved attractions.


360 Neon Tour

The Neon Museum is offering a virtual tour that allows guests to move freely in a virtual scan of the Neon Boneyard — the museum’s outdoor exhibition space — and explore sign descriptions, historical images and content from the museum’s collection.

Throughout the virtual tour, more than 130 hotspots display information related to each sign.

The tour includes a documentary about the Hard Rock Café guitar and its restoration, as well as select pieces of art from Tim Burton’s “Lost Vegas” exhibit, among other highlights.


CirqueConnect: The Circus at Home

With the coronavirus causing the suspension of Cirque du Soleil live performances until 2021, Cirque du Soleil is inviting its fans to a weekly 60-minute online event to enjoy some of the best moments from its renowned shows on the new hub CirqueConnect.

The CirqueConnect content hub is filled with footage from various shows, and fans are able to go backstage at the different Las Vegas shows with the company’s “Behind the Curtain” series. It also offers Stay Fit, an at-home workout series with professional Cirque performers, as well as dedicated children’s entertainment.

 

Vegas at Home Series

Las Vegas Magazine created a new YouTube series “Vegas at Home,” featuring top Las Vegas personalities performing from home.

Westgate magician Jen Kramer, ventriloquist Romeo Le Formidable, Chef Rick Moonen from the Mandalay Bay and more have made appearances on the channel.

The series now has more than 45 short episodes for Las Vegas fans to enjoy.


The Wednesday Spin Presented by Park MGM

On April 1, Park MGM debuted “The Wednesday Spin,” bringing its famous Industry Nights into homes.

The Wednesday Spin is a virtual DJ party that video broadcasts live from Park MGM’s Instagram account and features hours of nonstop music from a rotation of Las Vegas’s top DJ talents, all representing Park MGM venues.

Audience members are encouraged to join in the party’s conversation by using the hashtag #VegasFromHome.


The Socially Distant Show

Las Vegas performers are supporting each other in these challenging times on The Socially Distant Show, created and co-produced by two longtime local Las Vegas dancers.

Audiences are able to catch a new episode every night on the new show’s Instagram and YouTube channels. Each episode features a guest host and a performance and interview with a Vegas performer.

Comedians, magicians, singers, dancers, and other entertainers have been showcased on the platform. Audience members are encouraged to make a donation to support Las Vegas entertainers.


From full aerial views of the famous Bellagio Fountain to livestream views of the Strip, Las Vegas’s enticing attractions are still on display. And while we won’t be able to see you in person in for CES 2021, there are still opportunities to immerse yourself in Las Vegas this coming January — from afar.
