1. The Evel Knievel Museum


Robert “Evel” Knievel is one of the most famous motorcycle stuntmen in the country. His jumps could be called deaf defying by some and simply crazy by others, no matter who you ask, he has jumped over some of the most iconic places we know of such as the fountains at Caesars Palace back in 1967.

People from as young as 5 to as old as 85 have been amazed and glued to their tv to watch this man attempted jumps from all over with no safety nets to protect him. This becomes a show all in itself, a weekend-long event to bring the family to and watch if he will be able to make it without crashing.

This museum shows the history of Evel Knievel, all of his jumps, and even some of his bikes he used.
