Top sights in Las Vegas
Call it Sin City if you want, but there's no denying that the Entertainment Capital of the World has a unique allure. After all, it took a lot more than seedy clichés to make Las Vegas one of the world's leading tourist destinations!
Vegas isn't a place to be enjoyed on the cheap! Set the tone for extravagance with Helicopter tours of the city's kitsch architecture and surrounding desert landscapes.
Death Valley, the hottest corner of North America, may be ominously named but its beauty is quite humbling, and it even blooms in spring. Just bring plenty of water!
The Las Vegas Strip boasts many of the world's largest hotels and casinos, all hosting their own dazzling shows. Take the scenic route by limo!
The choreographed fountains in front of the Bellagio hotel "dance" every 15 minutes from 8pm till midnight (and every 30 in the afternoons)!
The huge volcano in front of the Mirage hotel is another attraction in the same vein. It erupts on the hour from 8pm till midnight and, oddly, smells like pina coladas!
If gambling in the casinos isn't enough to set your pulse racing then how about zipping around the thrilling Motor Speedway in a luxury sports car?
You might be able to see the canyon's breathtaking red rock formations from your hotel window but getting up close to the Red Rock Canyon is a must for avid hikers, rock climbers, and mountain bikers!
The Hoover Dam Bypass is actually called the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, but neither name really does justice to this spectacular feat of engineering!
Did somebody say feat of engineering? The Hoover Dam's art-deco design is impressive inside and out, although the exterior's breathtaking enormity is truly something to behold.
The tallest freestanding observation tower in the US offers the best views in Las Vegas, as well as a revolving restaurant and four terrifying amusement rides!
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.
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.
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.
You're on your own there! Good luck!

What people are saying about Las Vegas
This was an amazing experience that my parents and I will remember for a lifetime. We were very lucky to have Pasquale as our tour guide with my parents and five other travelers. Pasquale not only drove us to the Grand Canyon West rim, he was a super knowledgeable, enjoyable tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was enjoying the experience. He volunteered to take photos of all of us and made sure he accommodated all of our needs. I especially appreciated how kind he was to my parents. I absolutely recommend this to anybody who want to take their parents or families to the beautiful Guano Point in the west rim of the Grand Canyon for half a day and see the amazing sunset. Food and water was provided, as well as, non-alcoholic sparkling cider to be enjoyed for that perfect sunset photo with your significant other or family members. This is something that everyone at all ages can enjoy like my 60 something year old parents.
It was really my husband's thing. I have severe acrophobia so I didn't relax until we were coming down. The staff was good and helpful. We had a lady who was on a scooter due to oxygen and the staff was very helpful to her to make sure she enjoyed herself.
Tour was great. Everyone wore their mask. There wasn’t a long wait before or after we were picked up from the hotel. Everything was convenient. The only thing I didn’t like was that we had to reschedule from a 9:00pm your to a 6:00pm your.
Randy our guide was awesome and was very knowledgeable! I would recommend everyone take this tour at least once because i guarantee you will learn something new! Twyla was an excellent driver also.
Everyone assumed they would be on top area of the bus because the advertisements/promos were misleading. Nonetheless, it was a nice tour. The guide was awesome.
