About Las Vegas

Including tips for the best time to visit Las Vegas

Awash with bright lights and neon signs, Las Vegas is a city of fun, freedom and fabulousness – as its iconic welcome sign promises.

Most of the Sin City’s action is concentrated in the Las Vegas Strip – a stretch of road lined with upscale casinos, Michelin-starred restaurants and legendary hotels. You can try your luck at the fabled casinos or check out a show from Vegas’ enviable lineup – from enchanting Cirque du Soleil acts to top musicians performing at its pulsing clubs.

Vegas resorts are designed as entire worlds of their own, complete with casinos, restaurants, spas, shopping centres and activities unique to their theme. Take a gondola ride on the canals of the Venetian, live like Roman royalty at Caesars Palace or experience mythical Egyptian grandeur at the Luxor Hotel. While it’s tempting to spend the entire holiday exploring your resort, make some time for Bellagio’s dancing fountains and botanical gardens, and head to the Neon Museum for an artsy display of retro signage lit up anew. A spin on the 550-feet tall High Roller will give you a glimpse of the world’s wonders, with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, the Giza Pyramid and New York’s skyline dotting the glittering city below.

A fluorescent oasis amidst the Mojave Desert, Vegas is surrounded by mountains and dramatic landscapes offering exhilarating activities and stunning views. Hike up Mount Charleston, zipline over the Bootleg Canyon or simply drive through Red Rock Canyon for a respite from the city’s heady energy.

We went there for a graduation and wished that we could have stayed much longer. We took advantage of the time we had and did a couple shows and dinner and shopping, ALL OF THESE ARE SOOOO AVAILABLE IN VEGAS. We had very limited time so we rented a car and stayed on South Las Vegas Blvd where there is less congestion and faster traffic flow. We went to shows at the Luxor and dinner at South Point, which is my favorite casino and hotel in Las Vegas, and then stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn, which was so convient and really lovely. I have been to Vegas many times for long stays and I wish I would have had more time this visit but we will come again. It is a treasure of beautiful hotels, restaurants and exciting things to see and do and you can never have to much time to enjoy all it has to offer.

I was skeptical at first with the lower ratings but Rio was great! The self check in/out kiosk was convenient—quick and easy to use! The rooms are spacious with comfy beds. Upon entry, the smell of cigarettes smacks you in the face (as expected, the downstairs is a casino) but we couldn’t smell it at all in the room (4th floor). The location was great, pricing was affordable and wonderful ambience. The only cons was that the bathroom needed some updating, the curtains could have used a good cleaning (they had a very very slight stinch).

Las Vegas is a city where you have to stay 2 days maximum, no more, because it's very noisy, there are a lot of people, everything is paying and expensive (except the Linq Hotel which was very well located and not expensive for what it was) . It is an energy-intensive city (as much for us as for the planet). On the other hand, it is necessary to make the surroundings of Las Vegas, ie to go to visit the desert and the Grand Canyon. It is very easy to get around Las Vegas, but I recommend booking a hotel well in the center of the Strip so as not to have to use public transport.

The first time I stopped by Las Vegas I was coming from the West Coast and the city looked so cheerful and full of things to do. I went to see Vegas' Venice and it was so perfect I felt like I was home (I'm from Italy's original Venice). The second time I arrived in Las Vegas I was coming back from visiting the national parks in Utah and Arizona: it was a cultural shock! Hahah I think everyone has to visit Las Vegas at least once in their lifetime to understand it, but it's not remarkable.

This is a different world. It is best place for entertainment and variety of celebrity restaurants. One can get any type of entertainment from normal to highly professional. But this will come with cost. One can enjoy light and glamor.

We enjoyed the fun vibe of the strip as well as see neat stores, for example the M&M store and the Hershey’s chocolate store. Prices for things such as drinks, food and taxi cabs were very high. It was fun to explore Fremont Street. The duelling pianos at Harrah’s was amazing! Definitely worth the admission price of buying a drink or two.. We also enjoyed taking the monorail from the MGM hotel back to our Flamingo hotel. It was a great way to save our feet on a very hot day.
