There’s more to a trip to Encore Tower Suites than drinking and gambling, especially if you’ve been to the city before. There are a number of museums located near Encore Tower Suites to make your Vegas trip a well-rounded one. Head over to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, which holds more than 2,000 animals including a variety of sharks, giant sting rays, piranha, golden crocodiles and its newest addition, an 87-pound, 7-foot long Komodo dragon. Be sure to swing by the sting ray petting pool before settling in for an underwater aquatic ballet, as floor-to-ceiling glass walls show sea turtles, sharks and a variety of fish frolicking about in their impressive Vegas digs. You can also check out Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, which gives colorful insight into the 1912 tragedy, boasting an extensive collection of artifacts discovered two and a half miles under the sea. The 25,000-square-foot exhibit even features a piece of the Titanic’s hull and a full-scale replica of the grand staircase. We know the photo op will be tempting, but please resist all “I’m King of the World!” references.
