Las Vegas is a place that you have to see to believe. With 24-light shows, over-the-top themed resorts, endless mazes of slot machines and poker tables, shopping galore, the finest dining options, and some of the biggest nightclubs in the world, there’s plenty to keep visitors busy living up to its unofficial slogan “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
Centered around a stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard called The Strip, 30-plus hotel/casinos light up the night sky and entertain millions of visitors a year in this Disney World for adults. Each with a different theme, the hotels of Las Vegas transport visitors around the world with accurate depictions of France (The Paris), China (The Imperial Palace), Venice (The Venetian and The Palazzo), and Ancient Rome (Caesar’s Palace). Tourists can spend days just walking through each hotel/casino, taking in all of the details that designers spent years working on in order to depict near-exact replicas of cities around the world. For those hotels without a country or city theme (The Wynn and The Encore), art, plush fabrics, oversized furniture and one-of-a-kind light fixtures come together to make luxurious worlds that make anyone feel like a member of upper crust society.
Most people equate Las Vegas with gambling—and rightfully so. While casinos are bigger, better, and more frequent than anywhere else in the United States, there are so many other activities to keep non-gamblers occupied for days. From the endless buffets to the fantastic Las Vegas-style revue shows (Bally’s) and Cirque de Soliel performances (The Bellagio) and roller coaster rides (New York, New York) to lion’s dens (MGM Grand), you may not even have time to gamble!
The biggest attraction off of The Strip is Freemont Street. Home to the old-school Las Vegas that The Rat Pack made cool, Freemont Street is the group of older Las Vegas Hotels and casinos. A little gone by the wayside with the growth of the mega-hotels on The Strip, Freemont Street has been embracing its kitschy charm and even offers zip line over a pedestrian walkway.
Las Vegas also serves as a fantastic gateway to the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, and Lake Meade—all of which are within a few hours’ drive or a quick helicopter ride for those who want to splurge.
The hotel choices in Las Vegas are endless. From drive-up motels to the most luxurious bungalows, panoramic views to just a place to crash, you can get whatever you want out of a Las Vegas hotel.
