Experiences, Workshops & Fun Classes In Las Vegas

When thinking about Las Vegas, most people imagine slot machines, roulette tables, fine dining, and sunny afternoons by the pool.

Las Vegas is full of opportunities to attend a fun workshop or class that will expand your knowledge and give you a unique experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Wine Making Experience

Grape Expectations is a charming private winery and the only winemaking school in Clark County located in Henderson, southeast of Las Vegas. They offer hands-on winemaking classes where you can get down and dirty with the grapes! Although they offer 4 winemaking sessions over a period of time to make wine from start to finish, you can also spend a couple of hours at the winery for an insightful look at the process. Their free winemaking open houses will talk about the steps that go into making wine, as well as teach you the nuances of wine tasting.

Las Vegas Gaming Lessons

If you’ve never stepped up to a blackjack table or placed a bet at a sportsbook, gambling can all seem very confusing and intimidating. Just know you are not alone. That’s why there are several places that offer beginner-level gambling classes and lessons on how to play the games, make bets, understand the rules, and have an overall good time!

Several Las Vegas casinos offer free gaming classes, or you can always purchase a one-on-one lesson with workshops like The Gambling Experience.

Ballroom Dancing Classes

Although you might be eager to hit a popular Las Vegas nightclub while visiting, ballroom dancing classes put a slightly different perspective on the dancefloor. It certainly captures the essence of vintage Las Vegas and brings a little piece of that era back. Check out some dance schools in Las Vegas offering ballroom dancing sessions, including Summerlin Dance Academy, Rhythms Dance Studio, and the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. It’s a unique way to spend some time with a loved one or friend in Las Vegas before returning to your Sin City mischief.

Downtown Las Vegas has experienced a boom in craft beer breweries and is the best place to go for local beer tastings.
