Las Vegas, Vegas, Sin City…whatever you choose to call it, it’s clear that there are few places quite as famous (or notorious) as this glittering city in the desert that caters as much to adults as to families. When you travel to Las Vegas, you’ll finally understand the universal appeal of “Viva Las Vegas.”
Your first stop when you visit Las Vegas should be Strip, a long boulevard that’s home to hotels and casinos of legendary opulence: the Bellagio, Luxor, or MGM Grand are among the most recognizable. A holiday in Las Vegas means visiting Paris, New York, Venice, or Monte Carlos all within a matter of blocks! You can catch a show by David Copperfield or the Blue Man Group before heading to a restaurant run by celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Emeril Legasse, or Joel Robuchon.
While the stages and shows of the strip are Las Vegas tourism staples, saavy travelers won’t neglect a visit to Old Las Vegas, the gaudy-glitzy area of town where the Rat Pack once roamed and which currently houses the Mob Museum and the famous Golden Nugget casino-hotel. It’ll surely make your Las Vegas holiday feel like a scene out of James Bond!
Those starting their Las Vegas vacation at McCarran International Airport can hop on the monorail and go straight to the strip or have a look at the shuttle schedule for a quick ride downtown. So let’s get started planning your trip to Las Vegas!
