Las Vegas is glitz, glamour and show-stopping hotels, and must be seen to be believed

Viva Las Vegas – one of America's most popular destinations, an exciting year-round playground and neon wonderland in the otherwise empty Nevada desert. Las Vegas is glitz, glamour and must be seen to be believed. Here you can travel the globe, experience some of the best shopping in the country, and lose a few hours, and possibly dollars, or more at one the famous casinos without having to leave a seven block stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard, otherwise known as the Strip.

  • There are so many shows on offer here ranging from the gravity defying Cirque du Soleil performances to a-list entertainers in residence
  • No matter your tastes there will be plenty of restaurants that will suite you, alongside numerous bars and nightclubs
  • If you seek a break from the city then a trip to the Grand Canyon by helicopter or coach is a must – why not hire a car and spend a night or two on the South Rim?
  • It’s not all about the strip – Downtown Las Vegas is where it all began. It’s a little less polished than the famed Strip yet is going through something of a renaissance
  • Las Vegas is most likely the only place in the world that you can be walked down the aisle – and serenaded – by an Elvis impersonator, or head out to the Grand or Red Rock canyons for your special day

If you’re planning on seeing a show make sure to check out the stands dotted around the Strip, either inside the hotels or on the main walkways, which offer discounted seats and dinner offers.

Most of the hotels offer some kind of free entertainment to draw people in, the best ones are the Bellagio fountains which you can’t miss as they perform so regularly but other shows such as the Sirens at Treasure Island, the volcano at The Mirage or the Gods at Caesars all happen at specific times of the day so make sure you plan those into your schedule.
