Las Vegas Holidays
Las Vegas is known as the capital of gaming, and understandably so. Built from nowhere in the middle of the desert it is now a vast stretch of hotels, casinos and hundreds of attractions.
The city is located on the west of America, in the state of Nevada, near to the California boarder.
The best time to visit Las Vegas
Thanks to its 300 days of sunshine Las Vegas is a year-round resort, but some periods are more popular than others for a Las Vegas holiday.
Major holidays including over Christmas and New Year and around Thanksgiving cause a rise in hotel prices. January and February are quieter months after the hectic festive celebrations.
As most Las Vegas activities are indoors the weather isn't usually an issue but if you're looking to do some sunbathing whilst on your trip then be sure to pick the summer months of June to September. Winter evenings can be cold but nothing a jacket won't solve.
Sightseeing in Las Vegas
Most of the hotels along the Strip have something special to draw in the crowds. Visit the resident lions at the MGM Grand, watch the Bellagio dancing fountains, take a gondola ride inside The Venetian or survey the view of the strip from the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris hotel.
If you'd prefer a slightly calmer day during your holiday to Las Vegas then venture further afield. Tours to the breathtaking Grand Canyon are popular, including once in a lifetime flights down into the canyon.
Nightlife in Las Vegas
Las Vegas was built for nightlife, 24 hours a day nightlife that is! Here you'll find non-stop entertainment in one of the world's most outrageous cities. Whether you intend to gamble or not, you'll find something to do every minute of the day during your Las Vegas holiday.
As well as in-house casinos most hotels also host theatre shows and live music, have bars and nightclubs and wide variety of dining options. There are magic shows and comedy clubs as well as cinemas and the famous Cirque Du Soleil.
