Travel to Las Vegas with us

Located in the Mojave Desert in the state of Nevada, Las Vegas is a unique destination for anyone taking a break in the USA – and one where the entertainment on offer will surpass anything available anywhere else.

Often billed as the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’, it’s a city that never really sleeps, with a huge array of attractions that are located along the famous Vegas Strip.

Given the desert location, it will come as little surprise that the temperatures in Vegas in peak season can get quite high; running into the 40s during the middle of summer.

Evenings see the mercury drop back a little which makes things much more comfortable if you want to head out and explore the bright lights.

Head to Vegas during the winter and temperatures in the teens will be the norm – making it the ideal place for a break out of season given the fact that rain is pretty much unheard of throughout the year.

If you’re considering booking a holiday to Vegas, then chances are its because you are looking to be entertained at every turn – and you certainly won’t be disappointed.

There’s plenty of glitz and glamour with top class casinos, spectacular stage shows and some of the best nightclubs in the country.

You can also expect to find designer stores and plenty of restaurant options, whilst those who decide to visit with the family soon discover that the Vegas Strip also has a number of attractions that will be suitable for children – something that many people might find to be a surprise.

If you want to spend some time outside of Vegas and take a break from the bright lights, then day trips out to the Grand Canyon are a popular attraction, particularly if a helicopter ride above one of the greatest natural features in the world is thrown into the mix.

Things To Do

Visit a casino

You can’t really go to Las Vegas and not spend some time in the casinos, where you can try your hand at all manner of different games. Blackjack and roulette are two of the more common games you may already be familiar with but complete beginners don’t need to worry as many hotels offer lessons to get you started. There are literally thousands of slot machines where you can also try your luck if you wish. The Wynn Las Vegas, the Bellagio and Caesars Palace as just three casinos you might have heard of already, but you certainly won’t be short of options.

Catch a show

World famous shows are a major feature of the Vegas Strip, and it doesn’t matter what you are into as there is something to suit all tastes. Cirque du Soleil is one of the most popular shows in town but there is also the chance to catch some top class comedy or to enjoy live music from some of the top names in the industry.

High Roller

The High Roller is the tallest observation wheel in the world and provides the chance to ride 550 feet above the famous Vegas Strip. The 30-minute trip provides the chance to take in stunning views of your surroundings and is particularly spectacular when the sun goes down and the bright lights of the Strip come to life.

Bellagio Conservatory

The Bellagio Conservatory is located within the Bellagio Hotel and is always in bloom thanks to an ever-changing display created by expert gardeners to reflect the different seasons and to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Covering more than 13,000 square feet, the conservatory is something of an oasis amidst the more hectic surroundings of the Strip.

Stratosphere Tower

The Stratosphere Tower is located just north of the famous Strip and is one of the tallest towers in the United States. The tower stands at more than 1,100 feet tall and houses two observation decks as well as a revolving restaurant known as the Top of the World. You can also enjoy a range of rides on the top of the tower, which include a 160ft freefall and X-Scream – where riders are catapulted over the edge of the tower before dangling 109 stories up.

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon isn’t exactly round the corner from Las Vegas, but the time taken to reach one of the most astonishing natural sites in the world is well worth the wait. Around two and a half hours by road, the Canyon is famous around the world for stunning scenery right along the near 280 mile long crater, with it’s steep cliffs and burnt red rock. One of the best ways to take in the view is to walk out onto the Skywalk at Eagle Point; a glass bridge shaped like a horseshoe that extends 70 feet over the rim and allows you to peer down to the canyon floor 4000 feet below. You could also book a helicopter trip for an extra special treat.

Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam sits around 50km from Las Vegas on the border of Nevada and Arizona and was originally built during the Great Depression of the 1930s. A source of power to the surrounding area , the Hoover Dam has also developed into a prime destination for tourists who can take a tour of the dam and marvel at the views across Lake Mead – the huge reservoir that was formed by its creation.

Wet n Wild Las Vegas

Wet n Wild Las Vegas is a popular waterpark where guests can enjoy themselves on a range of different slides that are suitable for all ages. For smaller children there is a splash park alongside various pools, and a lazy river on which you can relax and take it easy.
