It is a tick on my bucket list
A brightly lit, fast-paced party town where you can try your luck in the casinos and enjoy the thrilling nightlife.
Visitors from across the world flock to Las Vegas to try their luck in the legendary casinos and admire the dazzling neon signs that dominate the skyline. But you'll soon discover Sin City is about more than bright lights – there's also a wealth of things to do.
What was once a humble town in the midst of the Nevada desert is now a thriving playground. Since it was issued its first gaming licence back in the 1930s, Las Vegas has welcomed all kinds of people to enjoy the high life here, from notorious gangsters to the Rat Pack to the modern day entertainers.
Of course the city is well known across the world today for its wild entertainment, casinos and attractions, but even if you're visiting with the family you'll find a more innocent side away from the party scene. Head for the Fremont Street Experience where you can enjoy the evening parade, or take in the nightly fountain light show at Bellagio Casino.
Take a trip to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay to come face to face with fascinating sea creatures. Or go up the towering Stratosphere to try the exhilarating, record-breaking free-fall ride. Head out of town meanwhile and you can explore the magnificent Grand Canyon, a truly spectacular sights and on the list of natural wonders of the world.
As well as all the fun and games, Las Vegas offers a real paradise experience for shoppers too, with designer boutiques and malls that make it a retail heaven to match metropolises like New York and Los Angeles. Head for the Forum Shops set in truly sumptuous surroundings inspired by Ancient Rome, to see what is on offer and go window shopping in the famous outlets. Then when you've explored the shops and found bargains to take back home, stop off for a bite to eat at one of the famous all-you-can-eat buffets or the wide range of fine-dining restaurants.
The city's incredible themed casino hotels that sit along the Las Vegas Strip have to be explored too, wherever you decide to stay. Explore Ancient Rome at Caesars Palace or be transported to Italy in the winding canals of The Venetian; enjoy a cocktail at the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel, see the Mirage's erupting volcanoes, or admire the iconic skyline of the city that never sleeps at New York New York. Las Vegas has so much for visitors to see and enjoy.
