See a show at the Smith Center
Las Vegas was once considered a soulless society based on greed, crime, and sinful behavior. While that all may be, um, true, the city took a step in a more refined direction with the opening of the Smith Center back in 2012. This is an elegant performing arts center that houses three theaters, featuring entertainment that ranges from jazz and the Philharmonic to traveling Broadway productions like The Book of Mormon and an annual performance of The Nutcracker. A new production, IDAHO! The Comedy Musical, was actually developed locally and is ready to tour the country. It's evidence that Vegas can actually produce art, not just pay for it to come here.
