Sin City is a crazy and beautiful place that draws over 42 million visitors every year. This never-sleeping, always-flashing city of luck is the only place on earth that unites Venice, Paris, ancient Egypt and New York with shot-gun weddings, Elvis impersonations, and the chance to make or lose a fortune with the turn of a chip. Las Vegas is also the perfect starting point for your Grand Canyon adventure, with self-drive routes and helicopter tours right from the city.
Casinos & Nightlife
Sin City is known for its casinos and party culture. Here you will find hen’s nights, buck’s parties and many other celebrations going on throughout the week and well into the weekend. If you’re looking to hit the slots for a bit of fun, some of the best places to head include ARIA Sky Suites, Hotel32 at Monte Carlo, and The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino. After winning big, it’s time to head out to the nightclubs. With big name guests frequently performing all over the city, keep your eye out for VIP tickets to jump the queues. So let your hair down and party all night...and well into the next morning!
Vegas during the day
After enjoying an awesome buffet breakfast at your hotel, that usually runs well into the afternoon, you might want to go out and explore Vegas during the day. If casinos aren’t really your thing and you love a good night sleep in a cloud-like bed, you will definitely still enjoy a trip to Las Vegas. The shopping is incredible and is generally available 24/7, as are the many restaurants to keep your tastebuds happy. For the thrill-seekers, head to the rooftop of The Stratosphere and jump on one of their adrenaline-pumping rides over 270 metres above the ground. There’s also a giant zipline at Fremont Street Experience that starts at a height of more than 10 stories high! For an experience that can be enjoyed both day and night, head to the Bellagio. Every 15–30 minutes a 3.4ha fountain in the middle of The Strip explodes with 1214 dancing jets of shooting water 140 metres in the air, and all perfectly choreographed to Frank Sinatra or Gene Kelly.
Shows, Events & Concerts
The entertainment capital of the world always has a multitude of performers bringing enjoyment and amusement to guests. Incredible productions like Cirque du Soleil and the Blue Man Group will take you on a magical journey with acrobatics, intriguing characters, and innovating lighting effects. If you enjoy magic, many of the world’s greatest magicians frequent Las Vegas to sweep you into their world of illusions. Other acts you can go and see include hypnosis, comedy, musicals, dance groups, impressionists and tribute acts. Internationally-acclaimed musicians perform breath-taking performances to ensure a memorable experience in Las Vegas.
