Known as the entertainment capital of the world and the ultimate party destination, holidays to Las Vegas are a must for those that like their breaks full of life, excitement and American glitz.
Home to the most famous hotels in the world, famous faces and of course the world’s most loved strip, Las Vegas promises a trip of a lifetime, perfect for adventurous couples and thrill seeking groups!
This mesmerising city offers something for everyone. Not only does it offer an abundance of amazingly designed and decorated casinos, but there are also spectacular live shows and thriving bars for the evening revellers. If you’re on a family holiday, head to the Stratosphere Tower on Las Vegas Boulevard, with lots of theme park rides to choose from, such as the Big Shot and Insanity or, for more of a cultural experience, you could wander around the Liberace Museum.
If you want to be in the heart of the action on Las Vegas holidays, head to the famous strip which is packed with casinos and upmarket hotels, such as the Venetian Resort Casino which even has it's own gondola ride for that added bit of romance. Or, check out the Wynn Las Vegas for an extravagant hotel within easy reach of all the attractions.
There is no denying that all the hotels along the famous strip are majestic and spectacular, but if there is one hotel that trumps them all, it has to be The Bellagio. Waking up to those famous fountains and exploring the hotel's very own Botanical Gardens and Gallery of Fine Art are iconic Vegas experiences in themselves.
During Las Vegas holidays as you experience the American dream, the sound of clanging coins is never far away, so trying your luck in one of the casinos is a must! Give the roulette wheel a spin, take a poker lesson or try your hand craps. You’ll find the coin slots are hugely popular among the Las Vegas locals, so grab some change and see how you fare!
Although everything you could possibly want and more is located along the strip, a trip to the old Vegas is well worth the 15-minute taxi drive. Time your visit right and catch the nightly light show, visit one of the casinos and don’t miss out on visiting Golden Nugget, one of the only hotels in the world to have a Shark in the centre of the pool!
