Welcome to Las Vegas, a place like no other on the planet! You’ll find this glitzy metropolis in the heart of the Mojave Desert, brimming with dazzling shows on The Strip and throughout Downtown Las Vegas. Whether you want to play poker, hit the shops, or party all night long, one thing’s for sure: Las Vegas holidays are a great excuse to let your hair down. After all, they don’t call it Sin City for nothing! For something completely different, the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon, which is one of the seven wonders of the world, is easily within driving distance. What more could you possibly wish for?
Things to do
There’s something going on in Las Vegas every minute of the day. Daylight hours are all about relaxing and preparing yourself for the big night ahead; so why not grab an ice-cold drink and soak up the sun by your hotel pool, or dig into a delicious breakfast buffet at the Bellagio? When the sun goes down and the neon glow lights up the metropolis, Sin City really comes to life. Try your hand at blackjack amid the majestic marble of The Venetian, or play the slot machines, with a cocktail in hand, at the tropical-themed Mandalay Bay. And when you’re ready for some peace and quiet, you can experience the great outdoors; Las Vegas is in the desert after all!
Fabulous Las Vegas
When you think Las Vegas, it’s hard not to think of neon lights, jumping fountains and grand hotels. The Strip is a constantly evolving, seething mass of vibrant fun, where you can get to know the soul of the city. As the sign says, ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’. Take your pick from spectacular Cirque du Soleil shows, iconic landmarks like Caesars Palace and the MGM Grand, and breathtaking performances from legends such as Elton John.
Las Vegas is famous for its epic fight nights, and if you’re lucky enough to be in town when there’s a boxing extravaganza you’re in for a treat. There’s no need for a special occasion to play the tables or slots in the iconic casinos, but keep in mind that you should only play with what you can afford to lose. There’s a reason why the hotels and casinos are all so luxurious, and why you get free drinks while you sit at a gaming table!
The Mojave Desert surrounds Las Vegas, and it’s a great place to explore and escape the city for a while. The Grand Canyon meanwhile is around a two hour drive away, so go on a tour or hire a car and visit one of the world’s most stunning natural attractions. If you’re feeling flush from a win at the casino, take an unforgettable helicopter ride to the canyon.
