Food, fellowship and family fun

Some of the best vacays in Vegas might not include a casino visit. The Las Vegas Natural History Museum, Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the Hollywood Cars Museum and Madame Tussaud’s Las Vegas are popular with couples and families. At the latter, you can see wax replicas of music greats such as Beyoncé, Tupac, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Stevie Wonder and of course Sammy Davis Jr.!

If all the soul-stirring music stirs a craving for soul food, visitors to the city can enjoy a meal at Gritz Café, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar or Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles.

Las Vegas is home to several African American churches, each contributing to the rich spiritual and cultural fabric of the community.
