Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a mystical and dazzling sea of neon lights that beckons its visitors with luxurious accommodation, unbelievable shows, exquisite restaurants, world-class gambling, and decadence on a grandiose scale – it is ancient Rome, romantic Paris, exotic Egypt, exciting New York City, and the Canals of Venice all together rolled into one fabulous vacation destination. Millions of people fulfill their dream of vising Las Vegas every year, and as to its manifold shape, it is not difficult to see why it has earned the title of the world's Entertainment Capital.

It is impossible to see and do everything that Las Vegas has to offer during only one trip, and this is what keeps visitors returning over and over again – the choices can be overwhelming. Good planning is the key to any great vacation but especially for Las Vegas, it is highly recommended to set up a bucket-list.

Planning Your Las Vegas Visit

When to go?

Unless you have a high tolerance for heat, plan your trip either side of summer. If you want to avoid the crowds then visit during the week.

How to get around?

From cabs and double-decker buses to helicopters and the Las Vegas monorail, the city has no shortage of ways to travel. Just remember that everything gravitates towards the Strip.

How to dress?

Women shouldn’t have a problem but male dress codes differ for nightclubs so it’s worth checking them online. Generally speaking though, a shirt and decent shoes go a long way.

What people are saying about Las Vegas

★★★★★ Antelope Canyon is a definitely cannot miss tour.

Scott, our tour guide, was very informative and knowledgeable. He took really care of the group. He's also an excellent driver, driving us everywhere, taking us to many beautiful places along the route.

★★★★★ Well informed tour guide with very humorous driver!

Red Rock Canyon tour was brilliant. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us well informed at every stage. Well worth going on the tour. Comfortable bus and plenty of stops for photo opportunities. Good lunch thrown in too. Adam and Andy made a great team

★★★★★ A beautiful day paddling up and down the Colorado River.

Morgan and Lauren of Blazin' Paddles gave me one of my best trips ever. I was worried about being able to participate because of some physical problems I have as a four-time cancer survivor. However, they made it almost effortless and made sure I was able to participate fully. Of course, they were helped by the beautiful setting, perfect weather and a great group of fellow paddlers. This is a fun trip I would recommend for everybody. I hope to repeat the trip as soon as I get back to Las Vegas.
