You are truly experiencing the best time of your life right now. You know how to have a good time and certainly aren’t afraid to show it. It’s your year to get groovy in Sin City. Yes, cool cat, we’re talking to you.

Here are 10 things to do in Vegas in your 60s:

Donny and Marie

Sing along with Donny & Marie at Flamingo Las Vegas

The beloved brother-sister duo wowed fans for decades with hits like “Paper Roses,” “A Beautiful Life” and “Morning Side of the Mountain.” Spanning more than five decades’ worth of music in a 90-minute show, you’ll hear the Osmond siblings sing from various genres including country, rock ‘n’ roll and soul. See Donny & Marie inside the Flamingo Las Vegas and you’ll be singing their tunes, long after the show is over.

Elton John

Check out Elton John and the piano everyone’s talking about

See the Rocket Man in his Vegas production, Elton John – The Million Dollar Piano live this February at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace. The Grammy Award-winning legend performs all your favorite tunes like “Rocket Man,” “Benny and the Jets” and “Crocodile Rock,” among many others. Elton is a big deal, but you’ll be surprised — his piano is also a show stopper. Displaying 68 LED Yamaha video screens, it’s no wonder why this 3,000-pound piano is included in the show’s title.

Rod Stewart Launches His Two Year Residency "Rod Stewart: The Hits" At The Colosseum At Caesars Palace

Get in the groove with Rod Stewart

The iconic rock star’s charisma still takes a hold of you, many decades later. Maybe it’s his fun dance moves and spunky blonde hair. Or maybe it’s his creative interaction with the audience. His charming demeanor, paired with his soulful vocals, makes it easy for fans of all ages to love Rod Stewart. See Rod Stewart: The Hits at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace in June 2018. (We bet you’re already singing “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” right at this moment.)

Nobu SuiteSplurge on a luxury Las Vegas suite 

Lavish in the finer things in life and book an over-the-top accommodation from Caesars Suites. We love the exclusive feel of Nobu hotel, located within Caesars Palace. The modern Japanese-inspired décor, separate dining and living areas and unique room service offerings are just a few reasons why we love this boutique Vegas hotel. Plus if you want to avoid the casino madness, you can host your own Vegas soiree — right in the comfort of your room. Champagne and party your way? We love the sound of that.

High Roller

Take your vacation to new heights

There are plenty of ways to enjoy aerial views of the Las Vegas Strip — all without being a daredevil. We’re guessing you’ll probably fly to Vegas, so these two experiences should be a walk in the park. Board the 550-foot-tall High Roller wheel at The LINQ and enjoy city views for 30 minutes. Put a little oomph into your High Roller trip and try the Happy Half Hour, where you’ll have a bartender right in your very own High Roller cabin. For a romantic Parisian-inspired date, take a ride up Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck. We recommend going right at sunset — the sky is utterly gorgeous.

MR CHOW

Splurge on fine dining

If there’s one thing Las Vegas has to brag about, it’s the endless amount of fine dining restaurants. Plus, it gives you all the more reason to dress up and celebrate your well-deserved vacation. Head to MR CHOW at Caesars Palace for decadent Chinese fare, or Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. If you love these, check out more fine celebrity chef restaurants in Las Vegas.

Legends in ConcertExperience imitation at its best

Vegas is known for its many impressionists. We’re certain you know at least one couple (or maybe you are that couple!) who got married by “Elvis.” Vegas wouldn’t be Vegas without impersonators, and we love that. If you’re into soul music, you’ll appreciate Solid Gold Soul at Bally’s Las Vegas. From James Brown and Stevie Wonder to Ray Charles and Diana Ross, these performers sound and look just like Motown’s finest.  Legends in Concert at the Flamingo Las Vegas is another great tribute show and includes impressionists like Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Barbra Streisand.

Napoleon's Dueling Pianos

Have a night out at Napoleon’s Dueling Piano Lounge

Your days of dancing the hustle or having a ball at Studio 54 may be a distant memory, but who says you still can’t have a taste of Las Vegas nightlife? You won’t have to wear high heels or platform shoes (or be surrounded by 20-somethings), either. Head to Napoleon’s Dueling Piano Lounge inside Paris Las Vegas. You can people-watch and dance, all while singing along to an entertaining dueling piano show. Tip: We recommend The Midnight in Paris drink, made with Godiva chocolate. Delicious.

Mon Ami Gabi patioDine al fresco

Want to bring your Vegas restaurant experience up a notch? Dine outside and take advantage of all the amazing views the Strip has to offer. Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas is popular with tourists and locals alike. Not only will you enjoy fine French cuisine and an impressive wine collection at this charming bistro, the outdoor patio has the best views of the Bellagio fountains right across the street.

See Mr. Las Vegas’ fabulous return

He’s back in business and shows us what the Strip’s been missing all these years. See the Las Vegas showman Wayne Newton: Up Close & Personal inside Bally’s Las Vegas. You’ll stroll down memory lane with his biggest hit, “Danke Schoen.” He also hosts a Q&A with the audience and wows you as he plays an array of instruments on stage. And let us tell you — he plays one mean banjo!

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
