A visit to Las Vegas is a must on any trip to America’s West – there is nowhere like it! This is Glitz with a capital G!
As everyone knows, this is America’s gambling capital and every major hotel has its own casino – more often than not, you’ll have to walk through it to get to the hotel lobby – and every assistance will be given to you to relieve you of your hard-earned cash!
But it doesn’t stop there - shopping on the Strip is a blast. The Fashion Show Mall has been re-designed to give the appearance of walking through a fashion magazine and has all the big name department stores.
You don’t need a car in Las Vegas, but most hotels have free valet parking and it’s certainly useful for getting out and about. There are taxis galore and there is also a bus service operating along the Strip which stops at the main hotels. Many of the hotels also have their own complimentary shuttle services or are linked by mono-rail services.
And what can we say about the nightlife in a city which never sleeps? Aside from the 24 hour gambling, there are spectacular shows to suit every taste and famous names are often in concert for extended runs. Nightclubs on the Strip don’t wake up til midnight giving you time to fit in dinner and a show before moving on.
