Las Vegas is a destination that should be visited at least once by everyone who gets the opportunity, as the sheer enormity and spectacular design of the city’s famed hotels and casinos will be enough to amaze them. But Vegas certainly offers more than a pretty façade, as this city is renowned for the vast amount of activities and luxurious amenities it has to offer its guests, whether they’re taking in a major sporting event, enjoying a Cirque du Soleil show, or relaxing by the many lavish pools.
When you book accommodation in Las Vegas you're booking one of the most popular travel destinations in the world and is seen by many as the planet’s entertainment capital. With a bustling nightlife, abundant casinos for gambling, and with some of the world’s finest restaurants and shops, it’s easy to see why hotels in Las Vegas have become so popular.
Never a Dull Moment
Many grand Las Vegas hotels and casinos dominate the Las Vegas Strip, but the Stratosphere Tower is the grand daddy of them all, and at 1,149 ft is the largest free standing observation tower in the US. There’ll never be a dull moment for you in Las Vegas with lots of regular entertainment in the hotels, countless clubs for you to visit, raucous shows (ONE and Love by Cirque du Soleil or Le Reve's The Dream) and amusements parks with lots of fun rides for the thrill seekers among you: perfect for a high octane Vegas city break.
If you want a break from the strip, look no further than the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon, which are both a short drive away and will provide you some breathtaking memories and wonderful photo opportunities. Or how about a trip to one of the wonders of the natural world, the Grand Canyon (best enjoyed with a helicopter trip).
Downtown Las Vegas
While sites like the Eiffel Tower of Las Vegas and the Fountains of Bellagio might be the places that best symbolise Las Vegas today, Downtown Las Vegas was once the bustling centre for hotels and gambling, and today is commonly considered the city’s main business district. The part of Downtown that is best enjoyed by visitors is the iconic Fremont Street, which features all the historic and classic Vegas casinos and games.
