A destination like no other
Appropriately nicknamed 'Sin City', Vegas is known for not much other than gambling, drinking and entertainment – but that's exactly what most who venture here are searching for.
The city is home to mega hotel-casino complexes enticing visitors to arrive but never depart. Lavishly themed with no expense spared, they vary from aquariums to circuses, to far off places like Egypt and Paris and Venice, to fantasy themes like Treasure Island. The exteriors of these buildings are a spectacle in their own right – a walk down the Vegas strip to view the complexes is a must. Most people spend their time casino- and bar-hopping, and rightfully so – there are few places in the world that can rival the Vegas casino scene, where entry is free and the doors – and tables – never close.
If you need to get away from the casino floor, there's a mirage of weird and wonderful activities to do in Las Vegas. You can go jump into vertical wind tunnels, visit the Mob Museum, watch a world-renowned magic show, race a Ferrari, watch a circus act (Cirque de Soleil are frequently in town), get married by an Elvis impersonator, visit a zoo or be hypnotised – all manner of things can be found in Vegas. So embrace those sleepless nights spent at the casino and those bleary-eyed days spend wandering down the strip and hop on over to Vegas, the city that literally never sleeps, for a spectacle-filled, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
