See and do
Las Vegas isn’t called the Entertainment Capital for nothing, and you won’t be running out of things to do or see in this glitzy town. If you’re a gambler, it goes without saying that you’ll be in seventh heaven here. The notoriously clock-less casinos have gobbled up many a visitor’s entire stay – a bit of a pity considering how much more there is to Vegas than the slots and tables.
After all, where else in the world can you have a cocktail by the pool, ride a Venetian Gondola, go skydiving indoors, get married by Elvis, take a pole-dancing class, see wax celebrities, go to the circus, go to a theme park, visit an aquarium, walk through a transparent tunnel surrounded by live sharks, or use a urinal mounted on a genuine piece of the Berlin Wall, all in the space of a few hours?
Favourite sights, if we had to choose, would be the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio Fountains, the Valley of Fire State Park, Hoover Dam and Fremont Street’s pedestrian mall. You’ll find souvenir shops everywhere, so don’t forget to pick up some fuzzy dice or a pack of Vegas cards to take home with you.
You don’t need to drive to get around Las Vegas, which is good news if you’re planning on diving in at the bar. The monorail, tram and bus systems will get you pretty much anywhere you need to go, and several resorts offer their own free shuttle services. There are also complementary trams available connecting resorts that share ownership.
