If you are looking to experience the buzz of New York, the wonders of Ancient Egypt, the romance of Paris and the beauty of Venice all in one day, then include a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada on your destination hit list.
Las Vegas, or The Meadows as it translates, so called because it’s built on a fertile valley, continues to flourish today in a different way. Once you pass the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” neon sign designed by Betty Willis you know you’re in for something special and you can feel all your worries and problems slowly dissipate into the dessert air.
With its trademark byline “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” this city has entertainment and accommodation to suit all budgets and tastes. Whether you seek a variety show, a taste of the arts, comedy, or shopping; fabulous dining, a touch of magic, a pool party or trying your luck at one of the casinos, you’re sure to find something to tempt.
Top end extravaganza can be found in the towers of Encore and Wynn Las Vegas, The Four Seasons and The Tuscan inspired Bellagio, but at a price. If it’s themed your after, check out Caesars Palace in all its Roman glory, big top fun at Circus Circus, the sphinx and the 30 story high pyramid at Luxor or a gondola ride down the canals of The Venetian.
And the choice in Vegas is far greater than it’s fantastical and famous. The more down to earth tastes in accommodation can be catered for with a wide choice of non gambling hotels, motels, RV parks and camping stays, both “strip” or “off strip”.
Serviced by McCarran International Airport (ranked among the 12 busiest airports in the world) and the Interstate 15, Vegas will welcome you whether you arrive by air or road. As Elvis Presley sang in Viva Los Vegas “If you see it once, you’ll never be the same again”.
