What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Well, what ever your vice, Vegas has it all – and when I say all, I mean all. From all night parties to high stake gambling, The City of Sin is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Endless marriages take place in the many themed chapels, and thousands of outrageous bachelor and bachelorette parties take place among the glitzy lights and glamour of this lively city.
You can’t visit Vegas without going to Caesar’s Palace. Hit the Forum shops there and eat at the restaurants, especially the patio dining at Spago. Sit back and sip a cocktail, letting the world go by whilst watching the beautiful fountains.
If attractions are your idea of squeezing in as much fun as possible, you can experience everything from sand buggy racing to gourmet food tours, taking in some of the finest cuisine in the world. My personal favourites would have to be the Mob Attraction in Tropicana, a fantastic insight into the gangster underworld – on arrival you are greeted by your own personal gangster hologram! If you’re a big petrol head, you won’t be able to resist the Tom Petty Driving Experience. At a mere $109, you get to sit in with a pro driver, in a 600HP NASCAR-style car. You’ll hit speeds of over 150mph – an unbelievable and unforgettable experience only Vegas could offer you.
Las Vegas is famed for its magnificent shows, its bestsellers the Cirque du Soleil, the illusionist David Copperfield, and the Jersey Boys. Massive stars like Celine Dion often make appearances, so it’s worth a little research as to who’s in town.
If you are a bit of a night owl, you are spoilt for choice in Vegas. Clubs like The Bank, VooDoo Lounge, Moon, Ghostbar and the Gold Lounge are some of the premiere night venues. Plus with VIP areas, you’ll never have to stand and wait in line.
Like the ubiquitous nightclubs, there are just as many great restaurants in Vegas. There’s Lavo, a restaurant/club, Sushi Roku, McCall’s Heartland Grill and the Culinary Dropout at the Hard Rock Hotel. These are just a few of the many restaurants serving different types of food. From burgers to fine dining, there’s a bit of everything going on the streets of Vegas. Of course, there is gambling and the best casinos in the world here – that goes without saying. There are casinos EVERYWHERE, but do ensure you keep to budget and don’t blow your holiday spendings on a bad hand or get carried away with the moment and lose your entire savings. The casino ceilings are painted light blue with white clouds to give the impression it’s still daytime even if it’s 3 in the morning! You won’t find a clock in a casino either, all done to keep you in there longer.
Whatever you do in Vegas, make sure you get the most out of your holiday and do some research online first – this will free up time when you’re there. Also, make sure you check out these offers for cheap flights to Las Vegas, after all, the more cash you save, the more you can spend in the casinos.
