Why visit Las Vegas?

Tour the world

From Paris, to New York, Italy and more – see the world from the Las Vegas Strip!

For a taste of Italy, step onboard a gondola at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas in the Grand Canal Shoppes or admire the Trevi Fountain, located just outside Caesars Palace. Visit the observation deck at the top of the Vegas Eiffel Tower for a romantic experience, with panoramic views over the city’s world-famous casinos and the Fountains of Bellagio. Explore the Big Apple at New York-New York Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, where you can visit iconic landmarks including Grand Central Terminal, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Empire State Building. Don’t forget to head to the Luxor to see the iconic Pyramids of Giza!

Stunning sights

Beyond the Strip, there’s so much more to explore. Experiencing the Grand Canyon’s dramatic views, history, and dusty trails is a sure-fire bucket-list tick. If you’re driving from the Strip, you’ll pass through the Mojave Desert filled with majestic Joshua trees and cactus flowers. Stop off at Eagle Point before heading to the West Rim to spot the ‘eagle’ carved into the rocks. See the canyon from the air on a helicopter ride for an unforgettable experience!

A pit stop at the Hoover Dam is also must-see. Located on the Arizona/Nevada border, this national historic landmark is a world-renowned structure and an impressive feat of engineering. Created by the Hoover Dam, you can also admire Lake Mead with its miles of shoreline.

International cuisine

Las Vegas is well-known for its world-class buffets and celebrity chef restaurants. From giant pancakes with syrup to biscuits and gravy, indulge in some classic American comfort food. Most of the casinos have international buffets which feature cuisine from all over the world, and even luxurious seafood including lobster, Alaskan king crab legs or snow crab legs.

Venture just outside the Strip to eat more like a local for cheaper prices. There are many Chinese restaurants around Vegas’s Chinatown too.

Meet Matthew, guide for Las Vegas

“I’d highly recommend the Sphere Experience – a multi-sensory experience which showcases their impressive sound system – one of the best in the world! The Sphere itself can’t be missed: at 875,000 square feet, this gigantic globe lights up with ever-changing visual displays.

There’s plenty of family-friendly activities: from a day out exploring Red Rock Canyon, to Town Square Las Vegas for shopping and its dinosaur experience. If you’re visiting the Hoover Dam, don’t forget to stop off at Boulder City for an ‘old time’ Vegas feel. There’s also a railroad museum there which is ideal for children.

No trip to Vegas is complete without watching one of their shows – from magicians to circus acts and more, you’ll be blown away by the extravagant displays. The Fountains of Bellagio are especially magical to watch at night too, as they dance to music.

If you’re stopping by Chinatown (a 10-minute drive from the Strip) – try some crab and cucumber soup dumplings, they’re delicious!”

Taxis are easily available, or you could buy tickets for the Monorail which will take you from one end of the Strip to the other, with regular stop-offs.

Las Vegas has a desert climate with very hot dry summers and cooler winter months.

Day trips including the Grand Canyon are perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Some hotels on the Strip have indoor mini golf, and virtual reality games – so there are plenty of activities to keep children entertained.

Or visit Cowabunga Bay waterpark for an exciting day out, with several waterslides and other rides. This colourful and well-maintained park is a short drive from Las Vegas and even features a ‘kids cove’ with shallow waters.
